      It makes me happy when people choose joy as their word! I haven’t yet chosen it as my own One Word, but I live vicariously through others who choose it. 🙂 Thanks for sharing this news with us, Dee.

  1. Teresa

    My word is Trust because I been hurt by mean people they was my family. They steal from I lost my house because of them. And it’s steal hurt.

      I’m so sorry for those tragic things you’ve endured, Teresa. Choosing Trust as your word is a great leap of faith. May you be blessed through it as you go forward.

    I have a sticky note on my desk to slowly collect potential words for next year. Just this morning the word “open” shimmered so I added it. Usually I collect a listful to listen to, pray about, imagine then discern which one to sit with for 2023.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      If you choose it, “open” would be yet another brave choice on your part, Jean! You pick such amazing and unusual words that God can take in so many directions. I love following your One Word journeys.

  3. Donna

    For the first time ever, I have my next (2023) One Word already! God has shown me an incredible link between my One Words for the past 3 years, which I don’t think I would have seen had I not spent so much time with my One Word friends under your leadership Lisa!
    BUT you’ll have to wait for the BIG reveal in January…LOL

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Ooh, I can’t wait to hear what your word is going to be, Donna! I gain wisdom myself by reading the ways you allow the Lord to work through your words. So I know this next word will be equally as important not just for you, but for those of us who follow along. No pressure though! 🙂

    For the first time ever I know in advance what my One Word is, and it is a natural outgrowth of the things I’ve been reading, studying and hearing sermons on. The topic is prayer but my One Word will be revealed in Jaunuary! (I couldn’t resist copying Donna!)

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      How exciting to already have your word, Jerralea! Last year my word didn’t arrive until near the end of the year, but this year it’s come early (unless God changes it on me). 🙂 I like knowing in advance so I can begin preparing my heart now for it. It’s great that you already have prayer as your topic to lay the foundation for your word.

    HI Lisa, it’s been at least a month since I’ve popped by. Babysitting my now 1-year old granddaughter three days a week leaves me little time for the computer. I used to be a “one word for the year” gal, but in recent years, I switched to a “one word for the month” format. (That idea came from the book Focus, by Cleere Cherry Reaves). My personality tends to be a little bit ADD, so changing things up each month is helpful to me.
    Hope all is well with you and yours!!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      I think one word a month is a great idea too, Patti! I tend to break my word of the year into 12 different themes so I understand that little bit of ADD. 🙂 Keeping up with a 1-year-old is enough to keep you very busy. I have a 1-year-old grandson and his energy far exceeds mine. lol. Thanks for sharing about the Focus book as well.

    It might be intentional listening. . . this last year was my third year of prayer. God usually cues me in on the lessons we’re going to work on randomly, not necessarily from January to December. But I feel like he’s reeling me in to listen.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Intentional Listening is a great theme that would be beneficial for any of us to choose! I love that, Maryleigh. I wonder how our relationships would all be transformed if we each were more focused on listening to each other and to God…

  7. Jeanne Takenaka

    Lisa, I love that you are encouraging people to begin thinking about their 2023 word. I am praying over which word God would have me to focus on. I don’t know what it will be yet. 🙂 Thank you for keeping this community vibrant and encouraging!

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      I’m glad you’re already praying about your word, too, Jeanne. I’ve so appreciated your being part of our One Word community. Your journey this year with CLING has been one I’ve watched closely for my own encouragement.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      Ha. Well, whenever you reveal it, we’ll be excited to hear it, Lois! Dawn has been such an interesting word to follow you through this year; it’s one of those words that can be quite unexpected yet dependable at the same time.

  8. Lory @ Entering the Enchanted Castle

    I have greatly enjoyed and benefited from my One Word journey this year, but I don’t have the impulse to do it again next year. I’m discerning what other projects may be calling me. I’m grateful to the One Word community for being so supportive and am interested to see where your words are taking you next.

    1. LisaNotes Post author

      I’ve so enjoyed walking alongside you this year with our One Words, Lory! I will continue following your blog next year too to see what new things you are being called to. You have been an encouragement to me in many ways, friend.
