My One Word


I really did not prepare to do a word. I've had a pretty crazy year and last few months. I kept hearing the word purge the past few months. What does that word mean? The Webster's defines it as follows:

a : to clear of guilt
b : to free from moral or ceremonial defilement


Kind of an unpleasant word to talk about isn't it? I prayed years ago, almost 7 or 8 for the Lord to make me moldable. I was a young college girl and I do not think I realized what I was praying. Because the Lord has been doing just that this past 6 years. It has not been that fun or easy. It is necessary though. So is to be purged. Jesus isn't coming back for a dirty, dingy bride. He's coming back for a white, spotless bride. I am part of the bride, therefore, I have to be cleansed, purged, and spotless. My desire is to let God purge me of myself. My self-righteousness, my selfishness, my stubbornness, my attitude, my agenda, and so much more. It will not be fun or easy, but it is necessary. A lot may have chosen nice words. Words that seemed not so harsh. Sometimes in order to get to those words, we have to go through some not so nice words. So many believers want the end result of a purge, but do not want the process. I certainly do not want the process, but if I want to be as Jesus, I must go through it.

What is your one word? What about a verse. I have one of those I will write about next week sometime. Have a blessed weekend!


  1. Your word is a good one. Isn't it nice to know though that Jesus gives us HIS spotlessness, and His perfect white robes! It's amazing and it makes us want to be more like Him :)

  2. Yes, the process isn't always the fun part, but we do have to go through it to be like Jesus. When I saw the word purge I first thought of how we are purging in our own lives in a different way. We are purging of all the excess, getting rid of stuff, minimizing, simplifying. It is a process as well after years of unnecessary accumulation, but I can see the spiritual correlation. My word this year is "honor" I've written about it on my blog. Blessings to you this week. I've enjoyed stopping in!


I'm so glad you stopped by! I love hearing from those who read my blog,so share your thoughts with me.
