Just One Word

This post isn’t one word… but my focus is.
I asked the Lord to give me one word for this year;
one word to focus on, remember, strive towards, etc.

This morning while reading in Matthew, He very firmly
spoke the word, “TRUTH.”

It makes perfect sense to me.
I’m a “people person,”
And “people persons” really like
people… not a problem.
But they also really want people
to like them…. problem.

Over the years Jesus has taught me more
about obeying Him regardless of what other
people may think or say. But their words
can still mess with my head.

-Stuff I overhear
-Things I think they think
-Knowing I didn’t live up to their expectations
(even if they were totally way off & unrealistic)
– Trying to anticipate their reactions
-Wondering if I shoulda-woulda-coulda…
sigh
You get the picture

All this boils down to…
Who do I want to listen to?
Cuz whoever I listen will prove who I really trust!

He IS Truth!

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way, the truth
and the life…”

  1. Happy New Year, Netta!
    So eloquently written. I’m praying for favor and courage for you all. Hope to be able to connect some time this year. Would love to come and visit courage again. Love you

  2. This is something God has been challenging me in over the past year so I can totally relate. Day by day I am practicing being more bold, not being offended, and trusting what God says trumps what people say. Thank you for sharing your heart! Love you soooo much <3
