New Year and a New Word

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019!

There is a common practice that many of my friends practice, where at the end of each year, or going into the new year, they spend time asking God for a word, a phrase, or a Bible verse for them to focus on in the coming year.

I had decided to do this for 2019. I spent time in November and December praying and asking God for my word, my verse, my phrase for the year.

I finally got my answer December 29th at about 3:30pm.

It’s kind of a funny story how it happened, if you’re interested, ask and I’ll tell you in person.

I wanted to focus in this blog on sharing that word, and to encourage you to do the same this year.

My word(s) for 2019 are Faith and Joy.

Not a list of two separate things, but two words closely tied together.

Walking in faith, with joy in my heart. Finding great joy as I put my faith in Jesus in new seasons and ventures He calls me into.

I can’t say I know a lot about what God is teaching me in this season, but I can tell you I am excited about it!

So what might God be calling you to this year? What words, or phrases, or passages in Scripture might He be encouraging you with in 2019? I encourage you to take some time and ask Him!

Praying for you in this new year, and excited for us to live out God’s great plans for us together!
