So it has been a while since I have posted here. I plan on being more diligent about sharing here this year. The first thing I want to post about is my words for the year.
My words for the year are: delight, gratitude, and courageous. Here are some passages of Scripture to go along with these words.
Will he delight himself in the Almighty? will he always call upon God?
For he hath said, It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.
But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord.
Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
I will be back tomorrow to give some Scripture passages to go along with gratitude/grateful.
Now I want to move on to Courageous or courage. Here are some verses I found:
My first verse is from Joshua 1:7, which states, “Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.” I am taking the verse from the King James Version of the Bible, which is our family’s version of choice.
My second verse is Psalm 27:14 – Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.
My third verse for courage/courageous is Acts 28:15 – And from thence, when the brethren heard of us, they came to meet us as far as Appii forum, and The three taverns: whom when Paul saw, he thanked God and took courage.
So now I am going to conclude by talking about gratitude. Unfortunately, when I tried to find Bible passages that directly used the word gratitude in the King James version, I could not find any.
Here is what I found when I looked up the word “gratitude” online:
the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
“she expressed her gratitude to the committee for their support”
||gratefulness, thankfulness, thanks, appreciation, indebtedness
So I decided to search for passages that included the words “thankfulness or thankful”.

So if you have chosen a word of the year, I would love to hear from you!
