Every year I choose one word along with all the other people who choose one word to work on during the new year. During our life groups (bible study groups), we create momentos to remind us of the one word we choose or God chooses for us.
This year, I prayed asking for God to give me my word because of course He would know what I need! Well, he gave me trust, love, believe, hope and faith! I kept seeing these words everywhere, sometimes together and sometimes separate. It drove me crazy!
This morning in church, where I always have time to listen to God and after really contemplating the words he gave me, We together came up with two words. Two words that encompass trust, love, believe, hope and faith. My two words for 2018 are Seek Him! Two words, one thought! Wow!
Seek Him in prayer, family, relationships, business, serving, church, children, worship, friends, purpose, dreams, praise and scripture. Seek Him for every area of my life. Pure obedience to God! It has been my desire for so long now to really know who God is and what His promises mean for me. I’m glad He knows my heart and chooses words that are just for me. Boy, do I need that.
I hope you Seek Him and ask Him to help you find your word if you’re choosing to have one. Remember He has your best interests at His heart. If you follow him, he will lead you to unbelievable places where you will meet remarkable people and live an incredibly abundant life!
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20.
Happy New Year!
