WORD OF THE YEAR : 2020 - The Perfectly Imperfect Mama


by - Monday, February 17, 2020

If you've been following along over here at The Perfectly Imperfect Mama blog, then you know that a few years ago, I started choosing a  WORD OF THE YEAR.  In 2018, my word was ENOUGH & then in 2019 I was thrown off big time when my word was MORE.  Those two words don't quit go together but y'all, they could not have been more perfect for those years!  I never just randomly choose a word, I start praying about it in December every year & God lays it on my heart each time ... & at the oddest times, well oddest to me, but perfect time to Him!  

Before I tell you what this year's word is, here is a look at what last year's word looked like ...


More Jesus
More time in my Bible
More family time
More alone time with my hubby
More time working in His ministry
More tithe
More focus on the small things

It was a pretty amazing year.

So this year, I was standing at the kitchen sink, washing a few dishes, when God laid my word on my heart.  I'm not even going to lie to you, I tried to overlook it & tell myself that He was NOT telling me that word.  Nope.  No way.  It is just too hard of a word.

So what is my word for 2020?!?


See!  It's a tough one, right!?!

Goodness gracious.  I'll be the first person to tell you that I like to have control over things.  I've been guilty a time or 593 of telling God what I thought our family needed & I can just picture Him up in Heaven shaking his head & laughing.  I'm positive He is thinking, you just let me do My will & show you just how far greater it is.  Spoiler Alert :  It is always, always, ALWAYS better than what I could have ever even begun to imagine!

2020 ... The year I will continue to pray & ask Jesus the desires of my heart, but at the same time, surrender my plans & what plans I think are best for my sweet family.  I am going to watch Him show up & show out with His ultimate plan ... just as He always does.

Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.  Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.
Psalm 37:4-5
