My Word for the Year is Hope. (You can get your word of the year here from DaySpring.
Instead of defining hope as some wishy, washy feeling, I will take a cue from Ann Voskamp and use this definition –
Part of the reason I dread the holidays is for at least 5 years, each year was worse than the last one. Major events happened such as unemployment, being rear-ended, and 2 broken washers among other issues. It’s been a fight to pay basic bills and put food on the table.
However, 2018 was the first year I can say was not worse than the previous one. So this year I am going into 2019 with hope and confidence that it will be even more wonderful than 2018.
The main goal of 2019 is to strengthen and deepen my relationship with God and developing a defiant reliance on God keeping His Word will cause everything else – mental self, physical self, family & friends, career, finances, physical surroundings, hobbies & recreation – to fall into place.
My verse of the year is:
It seems appropriate for someone who is trying to strengthen and deepen her relationship with God. I will be meditating on this verse a lot this year.
So come along with me as we journey into 2019. It is going to be a grand and glorious year. I will periodically keep you updated on my adventures.
