One Word for 2012 ~ Adventure

I love adventures!  Having written that word, I realize that I really enjoy watching others take adventures.  I'm on the sidelines cheering them on.

 One of my favorite TV shows is The Amazing Race.  Contestants have the opportunity to compete against other teams as they race around the world.  At each stop along the way, they participate in local customs as they tackle challenges that often cause them to step outside of their comfort zone.  They must be quick to follow directions to the letter. Each morning they are handed an envelope.  They quickly tear it open to discover their next destination.

My one word for 2011 was TRUST.

I have experienced God's faithfulness in 2011.  When I was fearful and uncertain about what was going to happen, He provided me with His strength, His comfort and His love in so many ways.  The Lord also used many people as instruments of His faithfulness to me.  How thankful I am and have been able to see so many everyday blessings.

My one word for 2012 is ...ADVENTURE!

So as I embark on my adventure called life I will remember this:
"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."  Jeremiah 29:11
 I'm linking up with Bonnie of Faith Barista for this Faith Barista Jam.

Blessings and love,

Debbie Petras

  1. Adventure! What a great word. And what is even better is Who to take the adventure with! You are right. God does have a plan for us and a plan that is good. We just need to look to Him and trust...

    Blessings, Joan

  2. Debbie, that was my word for last word and boy did the Lord take me on some adventures. One thing is for sure, He does have a plan and He walks with you through step of that plan....He wants our lives to be so much more than "ordinary"....

    I can't wait to hear all about your adventures this year.....

  3. Yea! I chose "venture" from "adventure" as my one word so we'll be on the same track. :-) I'm a little nervous about it because I'm not very adventurous by nature, but with God leading the way, all is good!

  4. I will admit that I am not very adventurous by nature, but the way you've put it sounds wonderful. As long as we know we have Him along for the ride, I guess I too am ready for some adventure. Have a wonderful day Debbie! HUGS

  5. LOVE your word...I will post the first of my two words tomorrow, and I would say the first goes in line with your word....maybe God has something special for us both to receive this year!!

    I too enjoy that show...

  6. You amaze me. I know how full is your scheduled, yet you are organized enough to post some really meaty items.

    I'm all about adventure. I believe God wants us to live the thrill of His creation. I can hardly want for your new directions to unfold.

  7. I hope you have many wonderful adventures in 2012. Adventures that may stretch you some and help you grow stronger in your faith and that allows you tohave lots of fun too.

  8. Hi Debbie, my word for 2012 is "Peace" in my heart and in the hearts of those I care about. I am excited to learn why God placed this word on my heart. Happy New Year! Lori

  9. Praying all your adventures will be good and the Lord will bless you beyond measure this year. Hugs to you my friend!

  10. What a great word! My word this year is rejoice.

  11. I love this, Debbie. My word for this year is trust.

    Thank you for the prayers for my husband and me.


  12. Hi Debbie! Wow, friend, we are turning a new year over again together! It's going to be a 3rd year of online faith jamming together.. and I'm so excited about your One Word for 2012.
