He sends you word… Do you want a word?

January 6, 2014

DSC_0171

I can remember last year when I picked a word.. and it made me roll my eyes.

I was in the thick of a terrible situation… my family and I adrift.

For months afterward He would send the most amazing people to me… and without me asking they would say… I need to give you this word.

He called me out on the water with these words… if I looked any which way but Him, the mob of lies would lash out, swell up and crash against us.

Yet His steady heartbeat could be heard above the lies…. and He kept calling…

My joy will be your strength …. My joy…your strength…

step by step the impossible  became possible

my eyes above the fray I could walk across anything

the unstable made Rock solid

Thats what He does… He sends you word.

word that it will be okay

word that He already went ahead

word that you were made in His image

word that He has never failed you and He won’t stop now

word to follow where He leads… and He will make the unstable ; Rock solid.

Here I stand …2013 behind me… and I wouldn’t change it.  In the midst of those storms I wanted out so bad… I just wanted to cave and let the lies consume me and compromise it all … just for the fake peace I knew so well… but He had better things in mind for me.  He wanted me to know that if He calls my name..if He sends word for me…if He sends His Word to me… He means it… I am worth it.

Now with his heartbeat in my ears… tears in my eyes and the only swell being His joy in my heart… I can tell you I am so joyful… my faith is so much stronger.  He sends word and He stands for it!

So this year… when I picked my word… I smiled curiously….Oh what will He do!?  But when I got my verse… my joy liquified  into tears and I have been bragging ever since of His love… His sweet love for me!

So let’s do this… I have been praying and seeking for weeks just for this season of words and verses… and Here we are on this Day of Epiphany ….

DSC_0165

So let’s do this like all the other years.. leave a comment asking for a word… and I will get back to you as soon as He does.  (All of you have been emailing me and contacting and leaving comments on other posts about this.. I will try and locate those and get back to you today… if I don’t leave another comment here.) Once you get your word and verse please seek Him to reveal what it means  let him have that open dialogue with you… because His heart is for you and you were made to hear His Voice and there is a thirsty part of you that wants it so much. If  anyone wants to share what a previous years word did in their life I would love to hear about it!  And if you don’t know what we are all excited about you can look at these links:

        I’m so excited. Look how The Message says it….”Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” I will definitely CLAIM this!

      • January 8, 2014 12:30 pm

        that
        is

    I’ve already been impressed for over a month that my ” Word for the year” is HOPE. But I would love to see what else God has to say about this. ( the word Hope seemed unnecessary or odd until last week. I will cling to that word because in one tender situation I need Hope indeed! )

    • January 6, 2014 12:58 pm

      Oh your heart for Him gives me hope… you are awesome.
      your word is:
      Keep Strong
      and your verse is :
      Isaiah 41:10

      you and Him are a great team!
      T

      • January 6, 2014 7:39 pm

        Tears. Couldn’t be more perfect! Don’t you agree! This was a HUGE God- hug for me. ( and I knew it would be)

      • January 7, 2014 7:13 am

        He’s pretty awesome ….and He loves you.
        T

      • January 6, 2014 7:43 pm

        ^ since no one knows me here I will say this even goes along with my word Hope for the situation I mentioned. Instead of being told we would be grandparents for the first time on New Year’s Day we got a phone call from my son that his wife was miscarrying. Today was their first day back to work after days of grieving. Yes, Be Strong. Indeed. ( for some reason The Lord wanted me to share. Already a blessing T.

        Thank you so much! Just one more confirmation of what He is speaking to me. I homeschool my 8 children and for some reason so far this year has been insane. Yet The Lord has been saying”Be still, simplify and streamline, peace…” So, calm and hearing are right on! And hearing is an extension of the word from last year. I am so excited for this season! Thanks so much for this.. Such a refreshing.. Thanks so much for your blog. Such a gift.

        I know this is for me, because no less than three times today I’ve randomly come across various verses in 1 Timothy 4. I’m excited to pray over this and chat with Him.

    Letting you know more! He is so overwhelming ( in a good way) teaching me new things daily, encouraging me to step out and start a business, giving me a name for it in a dream. Then keeping me open minded to adding more businesses to this small enterprise He has so graciously dropped in my lap. He has really drawn my son to Himself, I love our talks about how much love and provision our King lavishes on us! In the last 2 weeks He has planted a seed of compassion for our small town and the substance abuse problems opening doors for me to be a positive influence and point some very lost sheep to my Great Shepherd. I could go on and on about miracles He has performed…..He loves us so much more then we can fathom.
