Wednesday's Word - Ponder.....

I've been pondering on a word that I felt God wants me to focus on in 2015.
I truly thought it was "silence"......
or maybe "wisdom"......
or could it be "encourage"?

It suddenly hit me like a ton of bricks as I sat thinking once again Monday morning about a specific word.....
and I realized.....
God had already given it to me.....

PONDER!

Oh, how I've always loved that word anyway!
And, I kinda have to be silent to PONDER.....
and often it's best to PONDER than to speak my mind, 
so that's pretty wise, right?
Plus, I can always PONDER ways to be an encouragement to someone else!

I my word!





How about y'all?
Do you allow God to direct your path to a certain word to ponder on throughout the year?
I'd love to hear what your word is for Twenty-Fifteen!

Breathing in Grace,



Edited to add:
This was written on Monday.
I couldn't sleep Monday night so got up early and sat down in my devotional chair to do a bit of reading.  I was lead to Daniel 8:28 and came across the word "cogitations".....
(in the KJV).
I had never noticed that word before, 
so like most of us would do I "Googled" it!

Definition of cogitation:
the action of thinking deeply about something:
contemplation......
to PONDER.

Yes, I'm going to LOVE seeing how God speaks to me about this word in 2015!!!

  1. I'm not sure you'd ever go back to see how I responded to your comment, so decided to come here to say that I like your "word"! Immediately when I read it, I thought of one of MANY verses in Praise to the Lord, The Almighty - a song I learned as a teen:
    "Praise to the Lord, who doth prosper thy work and defend thee;
    Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend thee.
    PONDER ANEW what the Almighty can do,
    If with His love He befriend thee." :)

  4. I like it!

    I haven't thought of this before, a word for the year. I wonder if I have one. Maybe "go" like on an adventure, boldy.

  5. I like your word. That is a good one. I was studying up on what mine should be over the weekend. I have so many that I am having a hard time making up my mind. I hope to decide in the next couple of days.

Gracious words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
