2015 has been a hard/amazing year. Hard due to jobs, finances & family issues but out of this world amazing because our Rainbow baby Hunter was born into our lives. Each and every day since has been a dream where he is concerned.
Now, my word for 2015 was Trust,
TRUST in the Lord with all your heart & lean not on your own understanding.
Often this verse was impressioned on my heart. When Jake was being mistreated at his job & i was home with our newborn trying to also recover from basically being gutted from giving birth & having complications.
When we left Iowa and drove back to Colorado with a 6 week old Hunter praying he'd sleep during the drive out. Thankfully he only woke up 2 times in the 10 some hours it took to get here.
When we arrived in Colorado and we moved into my inlaws basement
My word was my constant reminder of how HE knows better than i & HE has our best interest at heart therefore i need to TRUST in him.
When Jake was struggling to find work after we uprooted our family i chose to TRUST that the Lord would provide. & he has in one way or another. We have been down to our last dollar and lived on canned soup but at least outlr bellies were still full & we have always had what we needed.
There have been many times throwing up my hands giving in to whatever was happening around me sounded like the better option but when i took a deep breath and remembered my word i over and over again chose to TRUST.
JEREMIAH 29:11 says
For i KNOW the plans i have for you, plans to prosper you & not to harm you but give you a HOPE & a FUTURE,
whenever it was hard to see through the fog of life i would cling to those words. & cling to HIM and his promise.
TRUSTing may have not been easy but it was exactly what i needed & im thankful i have been obiedent in it.
So, as 2015 is rapidly coming to an end i am beginning to pray over and think of what my word of 2016 will be.
The more and more i rest in him and pray about it i am feeling deep in my heart that it is
Embrace CHANGE, Embrace PEOPLE & Embrace LOVE
So, what is your word? Do you even pick a word? Would you like to?
Let me know id love to hear!
