Still stuck on this verse…
And time after time I would remember to be still in the midst of the big move and new roles and letting go of familiarity.
At the end of 2017 this verse was still on repeat in my heart and my mind.
Looks like I’m not done with it yet.
My word for 2018 is a continuation of dwelling, meditating, soaking in this verse to the core, the marrow, the depths of me.
Because there’s one part I struggle with daily, one part I’d love to put to rest in a big way as I move into a new year.
Knowing I’m a child of God, knowing I’m actually free of the worries, fears, anxieties that often weigh down, knowing I’m where God wants me to be & doing what He wants me to do.
I’d love to be so sure about all this.
To live with confidence in who He is, who I am, what direction to take.
To hear His voice alone, to listen for the applause of my Audience of One, and be able to tell all others to Ssshhh, quiet.
I’ll be asking Him a lot of questions as the year plays out, and I’ll be listening for His answers.
Tough to do sometimes, isn’t it?
Know that it’s His voice you’re hearing, His direction you’re following, His applause you’re hearing.
Like Elijah on the mountain, listening for God’s voice, it came in a whisper – so close, so personal, so clear.
That’s what I’ll be listening for as I seek to grow in Know-ing in 2018.
Blessings on you and yours this coming year!
Do you have a word for 2018? I’d love to hear about it!
