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.
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.
