{WORD} Wednesday

Instead of "Wordless Wednesday" I will be doing "WORD" Wednesday.

What is {Word} Wednesday?

Well, at the end of 2011 I chose a "word" that I will focus on for the new year.
My post about my word and how it chose me is here:

On Wednesdays I will be sharing:
*How my "word" has worked in my life that week.
*An inspirational quote relating to my word
*A verse from THE WORD that relates to MY WORD.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV)
7 "But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit."

I love this passage! 
One thing I got from this is that the tree "sends out its roots."
The tree seeks out the nutrients needed in order to grow and bear fruit...just as we need to spend time cultivating a relationship with God through prayer and time in the WORD in order to "bear fruit" in our lives.

Okay, that's it for my first {Word} Wednesday.
Have a fruitful week my friends!

Dude, how many times can a girl use the word WORD in one short post?
Ever say a word so many times that it loses all meaning and sense of reality?
Um, yeah....

When I write or type a word too many times it starts to look really weird to me and like I spelled it wrong, even though I didn't haha. I like your word, it's a good one. :)
