I don’t need to tell you it’s almost 2015.
Are you ready for a new year?
So many of my blog and writer friends are choosing #OneWord for 2015. For some, this one word has been “given” to them by God, either through His Word, through His Spirit, or through any other way He may choose to use.
This one word might be something to inspire them. Or something God may use to teach and grow each one. Or it might be a word that will have a special meaning through the year, unbeknownst to them right now.
What’s my #OneWord?
I don’t have it yet!
I’m seeking God, and asking Him what my one word is going to be for 2015. I’m getting nothing. Nothing.
Am I not to have a #OneWord??” Am I the only one in this world without one?
I’m beginning to wonder.
In years past God has shown me scripture verses to cling to for the year.
In 2008, it was Psalm 89:1:
I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
I had an inkling what that verse was going to mean for me that year, but I was mistaken. Instead, that was the year of many singing engagements, and the beginning of a public speaking ministry.
Last year I was given Isaiah 43:19:
Watch closely: I am preparing something new; it’s happening now, even as I speak, and you’re about to see it. I am preparing a way through the desert; waters will flow where there had been none.
Again, I had ideas what impact this verse would have on my life, but in no way did I expect God to grow in me a writing ministry and bless me with the avenues for it. He grew something out of nothing.
Each year, with each scripture, has its own story. And it’s all a part of my journey.
Do you set resolutions?
Do you choose one word? Have you been given one?
Do you choose a scripture, or has one been given to you?
I’d love to read about it.
When God gives me mine, I’ll share it. And if I’m not supposed to have a “one word,” or a specific scripture, then I won’t. But, I’ll keep looking upward, and listening for that still, small voice.
Blessings to you, friend!
