2017 - MoreRather than make New Year's resolutions many of us allow God to speak a word, or words,that He wants us to focus on in the New Year. This will be my 7th year of allowing Him to choose a word for me. At the beginning of each new year I find it kinda difficult to let go of my old word, but especially my word for 2017, MORE. I do believe that God revealed MORE of Himself to me in 2017 than ever before.....
but could that be because I listened more?!?
Sometimes it take a few weeks for me to focus in on what He's speaking to me and I had to narrow it down between 3 that kept showing up but finally I KNEW that He was speaking the word DWELL to me for 2018.
Desire to please ONLY God, not others
Wonder and Awe at His blessings
Excited to see Him work in my life
Let go of things that I have no control over and especially let go of things that I do.....
bitterness, resentment, etc.
Love, laugh and live life to the fullest!
This verse of scripture seems to sum up exactly what He's asking me to do as I write my blog and pray for wisdom and discernment and sing that song that He places on my heart when I get a bit stressed.....
and to just be thankful!
If you have a focus word for this year, I'd love for you to share it with me in the comments.
Prayers for a happy and blessed and safe 2018 to each of you, sweet Friends!
