How would you describe your walk with God in one word?





C.J. WRITES: If you had to describe your walk with God in one word, what would it be and why? A friend asked me this not too long ago, and it made me think. I’m interested to know what y’all will say.

    Amazing

    Grace, because Jesus does everything.

  • Jolie Simmonds

    Learning

  • Unfathomable :)

  • Adventurous. Seriously, I’ve always thought of it as an adventure. An adventure is not always exciting and exhilarating. There are ups and downs, happy times and sad times, but at the end of the day, you find that you’d still call it an adventure. I don’t know, maybe that’s just me.

    • Haylie

      Can i upvote this twice? πŸ˜‰

      • Christina

        Hear hear!

    • Okie Gal

      What a great discription! I hadn’t thought about it that way. Thanks.

    • Jasmine

      Amen to that! That’s awesome!!!

  • Emma Grace

    (More than one word;) but, a firefight with demons who like to place a target on your back.

  • Mary

    The first word that came to mind the moment I read the question was “Learning”. Constantly growing, and being reminded that I am growing and have a long way to go. The second word I think of is actually 3 but “Child of God”. I definitely look at God as a Father and it the best way I can describe His love and how I respond to His unfailing love.

  • Emma Grace

    Beyond amazing

  • Emma Grace

    Hard

    • Okie Gal

      It’s definitely is rough sometimes, actually a lot of times, but Jesus is enough. Hang in there, He’s worth it. I’ll be praying for you. :)

      • Emma Grace

        Thanks so much. He sure is :)

  • Amazing. πŸ˜€

  • Jehovah-Jirah (that’s Hebrew for the LORD Will Provide)

  • Jasmine

    Journey. God is showing me many different things that I need His help for, and it’s been a journey for me. I know that God is shaping me into who He wants me to be, even when it’s hard and it hurts. But it’s a journey where I will be able to look back and say, “wow, it’s so cool how God works.”

  • Kate

    Sufficient. Especially with my Grandmother who passed away. I’ve learned how to depend on Him and not myself.

  • briannah

    Exciting! My walk with God is never boring and it will never be. It cant be. You overcome one thing and there comes another. One challenge ends, another starts. Its always that way and thats what makes it interesting and worth taking.

  • Chris T.

    A feast… that sounds weird, but the Bible often compares itself to “milk” or “solid food.” It’s a feast I always want more of… continually learning about God!

  • Anonymous

    Satisfying, God satisfies every desire I have for a friend, a Father, a counselor and comforter, my needs for love and joy and so much more. He is the true fulfiller of my soul!

    • briannah

      AMEN!!

    • liv737johnoxide

      I pray that God will let me be satisfied in Him.

      • Anonymous

        I hope so too, keep chasing after Him with your whole heart and let Him become your all in all!

  • Amanda

    Adventure!

  • Anna P

    Adventure

  • Crazy

  • Megan

    Exciting!

  • Grace. And not because that’s an easy fallback answer, but because of its meaning: “unmerited favor” or “something given that is not deserved.” I’m reluctant to explain why this perfectly sums up my walk with Chris, because it’s often mistaken for bragging. But suffice it to say, I’ve seen the Lord show me incredible favor over and over and over again in virtually every area of my life. Yet it is completely undeserved. In fact, I’ve deserved (and still deserve) quite the opposite. It’s incredible. Just thinking about it leaves me in awe.

    • Emma Grace

      Grace abundant. amen :)

  • Guitar with Arms

    Impossible….both for me to describe in one word, and because I’m incapable of serving God without His help! =)

  • Continuous. Which sounds weird, but it’s true. πŸ˜€

  • Al Ive

    HIM
    -because it’s all about Him not me :)
    But all the others below are also great ways to describe my walk with God in one word :)

    • liv737johnoxide

      This may be the best one.

      • Al Ive

        HE IS the Best :)
        God is my EVERYTHING :)
        Without Him I have nothing
        I did nothing to deserve His GRACE
        He is my REDEEMER
        He rescued me when I was yet a sinner
        He is my FORTRESS & STRENGTH
        & He offers me the best – eternity with Him & as a joint-Heir – Wow
        Yes HE is the best :)

  • Thrilling. So, so, thrilling. I’m so mindblown every day by what God does that I couldn’t ever imagine, and it is such a satisfying journey. It is absolutely thrilling to see God’s amazing hand in every aspect of my life, and something I could never dream up on my own.

  • Louis Gervais

    How would I describe my walk with God in one word? Undeserved.

  • Madison Camp

    Adventurrous!

    Jesus is so utterly amazing and every day with Him is truly an adventure I wouldn’t miss for the world!

  • Beautiful.

  • (As a side note, I am really liking this DQ!)

    • Haylie

      Same. This is a really neat DQ!

    • Caleb Bykov

      Is DQ dairy Queen?

      • Haha, actually it’s something Trent came up with, it means “Discussion Question”. You’re not the first to ask!

        • liv737johnoxide

          Wait. Trent Blake came up with it? Wow! I need a Reb history lesson.

          • I’m pretty sure it was him!

          • Haylie

            My thoughts exactly! Where have i been? πŸ˜›

  • Okie Gal

    I know I already answered, but I know some body who said “Needy, because I’m just so dependant on God.” I thought that was awesome so I thought I’d share.

  • anica chen

    Maybe l will use “bittersweet”? Because when l am close to God, l am filled with joy and peace, but l always fall down, l drift away from God, and at this time, l would feel so bitter. At this time, God will find me back, cure my wounded heart, and l can find sweetness again. ls it a correct feel? l always behaved badly…

    • Okie Gal

      I do the same thing. But even all my sin isn’t strong enough to stop God. So if He’s determined to keep us, nothing can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. Just trust him. He’s so good.

      • anica chen

        Thank you !!! Yes, nothing can seperate us from Him, from His love and grace! Praise the Lord! He is so good!!!^_^

      • liv737johnoxide

        Thanks for this!

    • Gabrielle

      Definitely agree!!! That’s the word I was looking for!

      • anica chen

        Yes, we usually share the same experience l guess(^_^)

        • Gabrielle

          For sure.

        • Gabrielle

          That’s me right now actually.

  • I have been thinking about this a LOT…..SO many words have come to mind…. Maybe “Extravagant”. Because God’s love for me IS extravagant..!

    • Faith B

      I love your picture were you a missionary?

      • Hi Faith! =D Thank you! Yes, I am currently a “missionary” in the commonly used sense of the word.. πŸ˜‰ I personally prefer to use the term “foreign missionary” because tbh, we are ALL missionaries!!! I live in Zambia with my parents and 4 younger bros. We’ve only been here for 6 months so far, but will be here for at least two years! There’s a link to my blog on my DQ profile if you’re interested in reading more about it!

        • Faith B

          I meant foreign missionary. My dad grew up as a Mk(Missionary Kid or if you prefer FMK foreign missionary kid) in Senegal. Nice reply and i totally agree! Thank you and i will.

  • Christina

    Forever

  • Michaela T

    Life-changing. Mind-blowing. Powerful. New every morning. A daily decision. ETERNAL. Always something new to discover. A series of second chances. And way more than can be described in one word (as you can see:)

    • Gabrielle

      Love those!

    • Sabine Castro

      Yes! Definitely a daily decision and all of the above πŸ˜€

  • Gabrielle

    Enough. ‘Cause He’s enough, and he’s all I really need as I walk through this life!!

    • BR!ANNAH

      Amen!!

  • Gabrielle

    great question

  • Dana

    Undeserved. I don’t deserve life, but Christ has paid the price for me.

  • Caleb Bykov

    I would say “adventurous”

    • Emma Grace

          • Emma Grace

  • Sabine Castro

    Adjective: real
    Definition: daughtership

  • roller-coaster-ride. I made that all one word… πŸ˜› Because sometimes its better and more thrilling and other times its depressing and low :) Like everyone!

  • asa haworth

    paul. My walk has been a lot like paul’s

  • Gabrielle

    Hard… Over the last three months God has opened my eyes to some things that I had previously been unwilling/unwating to see, revealed to me things about my future, sent me to the other side of the world and back, inserted a bunch of new people into my life and house, all sorts totally God things have happened this summer. He is absolutely a great father, but my walk with Him over the last few months has been hard.

  • Faith B

    I would say it could not be described in one word. Partnership, friendship, adventure, life -changing,full of life, peace and contentment in him i have been set free! Praise God for what he has done in my life. Over my life i have seen how perfectly God placed me where i needed to be to grow my confidence, creativity and flexibility. good question and i think for me it is impossible to fit into one word.

  • Jesse Collins III

    A struggle: Whoever said walking with the Lord was easy. It’s an everyday struggle (some more than others). The one thing that keeps me going toward God though is, that his love is everlasting, and a God that loved me that much… Deserves my attention.

  • Emily

    Life. That’s the word I choose. Life means a lot of things – life has pain, joy, hardship, laughter, happiness, hope, faith, despair, mistakes, learning, and most importantly, lots of love. Since life encompasses so many things, I chose that word for this post’s question.

  • Elijah

    Exciting. Sometimes it’s more of a crawl or even God pulling me forward and those times are hard. But then there are those times when you’re running and that makes it all worth it.

  • Nathan

    Thrilling! As of right now, my walk is on a much better track than it was, so this season of life is really thrilling for me!
