Word of the Year: FAITH

Each year I pray for God to give me a word that will help guide, focus and draw me back to His plan for my life.

Last year, the word was "change".  The scripture was Isaiah 64:8 talking about that He is the potter and we are the clay.  Change was good, bad and hard throughout the year and there were a BUNCH of BIG changes all throughout the year.  In fact it became almost comical every time a big change occurred.  However, I took comfort in knowing he was molding me into his image.  

This year, the word came to me early in December.  The word scared me as much as change did last year.  That word could go in so many different directions.  


I had to wait a little longer for Him to give me the scripture to go with it.   When it came was both comforted and scared about the year to come.  You see, when God puts as many "changes" in your life as He did in mine last year, you begin to get a little nervous.

The scripture was Matthew 21:21 Jesus replied, Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, 'Go throw yourself into the sea,' and it will be done.  

I am not sure what the mountain(s) will be this year, but after last year I know God's Got This!!!  God is stirring something in me.  I do not know what it is, but I feel the stirring in my soul.    God is preparing me for something and I have to just follow the course until He reveals the "mountain".
