One Word 2021 Linkup for September

Have you talked to anyone lately about your One Word?

  • Do they define your word a little differently?
  • How do they see your word in their own life?
  • Can they offer suggestions for how you could practice your word?

Give us an update on your progress with your word by adding a link below. 

You can also leave us a comment about your One Word.

This Month’s Challenge

Sometimes our One Word “works” or doesn’t “work” based on other things happening in our lives.

Are any of those circumstances within your control?

As you exercise your word the next 30 days, see how you would fill in these blanks.

I could have more [YOUR ONE WORD] in my life if:

  • I did this _______________.
  • I didn’t do this _______________.

Can you write a prayer asking God for clarity in deciding which responsibilities belong to you and which don’t?

And his help in following through?

This linkup will remain open from September 21 – 30.

The next One Word linkup will open on October 21.

If you’d like to receive a monthly email for suggestions about your word, sign up here.

You can also join our One Word 2021 Facebook group here for more interaction.

    Lisa, good morning! I’ve seen serendipity pop up in a post or two here and there. Experienced peeks of it when I’ve been out and about when I wasn’t looking. Found it reading Psalm 139 and then hearing it read outloud when visiting Emily Freeman’s podcast.

    I hear it in the songs of the birds and in the taking of snapshots, and in the smile of understanding from a friend.

    I see it in answered prayer.

      What a beautiful viewing of your word this month, Linda! I think we all experience a bit of serendipity as we look at our individual words, so your sightings relate to each of us.

    My one word for this year was/is “create” and God has really been doing so much in me and through me with that one simple, yet powerful word.

    Blessings to you, Lisa! And thank you so much for hosting! 🙂

    Lisa, I enjoyed engaging with my word Joy in conversations this month. Until now my journey has been a bit one sided, but God blessed me when I stepped into vulnerability sharing my word and exploring it in the lives of others! I saw a side of Joy that escaped me previously: The more I interact with others about joy, the more joy fills my heart until it overflows in acts of love creating more Joy. Ultimately creating an infinite circle of Joy from God, the source of all Joy, through me, to others and back again.

      This is moving, Donna. It reminds me SO much of our verses next week in 1 John 1:3-4 about relationship and joy!

      I had a conversation with Jeff about my word Uncertainty a couple weeks ago that was quite surprising. 🙂 It was enlightening to hear a different perspective on it.

    Lisa, I love the ways you offer to invite us to be intentional with our One Words. I haven’t blogged about mine a lot this year. I’ve spent a lot of time praying about all the things that have happened in our family this year, though. As I read through your post, God showed me that I am known and seen by Him through all we’ve walked through. Praying, spending time in His word . . . one can never go wrong with knowing God better, and knowing we’re known by Him. 🙂
