Every year for the past few years I have done the One Word.
Works way better then making resolutions.
Last year the word I chose was JOY. To seek JOY in everything I do. Let me tell I failed miserably at finding JOY in exercising, eating right.
BUT I had found JOY in cleaning my home, cooking, helping others.
For me cooking and cleaning with JOY was such a victory!!
Can I tell you how much it has strengthened my marriage and my walk with the Lord.
This year I prayed and prayed for the Lord to put something in my heart.
A few weeks ago he did. It is a word that so fits what I need.
Isn't the Lord wonderful that way.
Last night at our new year's eve pray in service the word came forth like a ton of bricks. I actually had to stop and write it down.
Like everyone reading my blog..I struggle with things in my walk with God. It's ok he knows. He knew long before I ever knew and as always he has the answer.
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to GOD must believe that He is, and that He is a re-warder of those that diligently seek Him.-Hebrews 11:6
For 2014...My ONE word is BELIEVE.
See I bring prayers for others before the Lord and Believe that he will answer them.
But do I honestly believe he will answer mine. I seek him but do I believe he hears me.
In 2013 my family went through some hard things, just as yours did.
I prayed and some were answered and some were not, just like yours.
I have been diligently seeking him but honestly not believing 100% that he would answer me.
Just like the scripture says... MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS.
In the still small voice that I know is my father in heaven he whispered to me...Believe.
Believe that I will meet you financial needs
Believe that I will strengthen your marriage
Believe that I will heal your broken heart
Believe that you will be a part of Ayva's life ( our grand daughter)
Believe that you can become healthy
Believe that your business will grow
Believe that I have you in the palm of my hand
Believe that your children will grow in me
Believe that I will fill you with my Holy Spirit with the evidence in speaking in tongues.
BELIEVE that I gave you victory in all these things and more at the cross where I laid down my life for you.
Writing this post brings tears and hope to me. Oh isn't it glorious when we hear from Him. I wish each of you were sitting right here with me, I so feel him tugging at my soul..Believe..Believe.
SO for 2014, I will Believe in my God as I have never before.
This year, just like last I am giving away something to help remind you all year of your One Word, one of the Heart keeps like mine in the picture above. I keep that at my craft desk where I spend alot of time.
