I am still working on my new One Word for 2019. You know, that "one word" that should help me grow, bring about positive changes in my life, and define what this new year is all about.
Here's the list of my previous "One Word" choices for the past seven years...(you can click on the links to see that post)
One Word 2018: Renew
This past year my word was "Renew", and I do believe that God was definitely all about renewing my life in the past year...Not so much in the physical sense...I'm still the same person physically as I was a year ago...just a year older...and feeling a few more effects of the aging process taking place in my body...no doubt about that. But I would say God was all about renewing my life in the spiritual sense most assuredly. And that is still a work in progress...He led us to a new church, and that has been a very positive experience for me personally...a kind of "homecoming" of the heart in many ways...and that has also led to us wanting to sell our house and move closer to that church so we can become more involved in the activities and ministries of the church in that community. Right now, due to the distance, we are somewhat limited in how much we can participate.
However, currently things are "moving" very slowly in that department...a few people have looked at our house, and they get our hopes up that they are really interested...and then we never hear another word...and so we wait. We continue to look for a suitable home in that area so that when it does happen we will have a place to go to...but even that seems to have come to a halt...there just isn't anything available right now that we could live in, at least that we can afford. So...we wait on God...and trust that He is still working on this.
And now here I am, trying to understand what "One Word" is God whispering in my heart that will help me understand His plan and purpose for my life in this new year...
I talked a little about this the other day HERE. This book..."The Way of Abundance" by Ann Voskamp. This is a 60-day journey into a deeply meaningful life...
