Announcing the Words and Verses…
I have no idea what my word means this year. I could venture to guess… but truthfully I can’t wait to see what He is going to do. Oh and my verse… I could barely digest it at first. After reading it I felt like I couldn’t read… as if the words weren’t in the right order. It is not an unfamiliar verse. I am pretty sure I earned a KitKat in Sunday school as a third grader for memorizing it…. maybe it was a Hershey Kiss. So after many had left the table and the kids had already resumed their hide and seek in the cold dark outside, I got quiet trying to hear anew. With some pondering newborn bathing and some discussing women’s shelters… my verse changed… the words became clear. I leaned into Him more…but it seems so heavy..too heavy for a whole year… Where is the reassurance of Acts 18:10, like last year… this is way too heavy to carry all year long…
I read it again…
He showed me Himself walking it out with me…
and my burden was lightened
I read it again… and how could I have missed it
There was my word two times!!
I read it again… the words made sense …
I read it again and it was new to me .. it excited me.
He is good , so good and I can’t wait to announce how all of this unfurls for the year.
Isaiah 55:10-11The Voice (VOICE)
10 For as rain and snow can’t go back once they’ve fallen,
but soak into the ground
And nourish the plants that grow,
providing seed to the farmer and bread for the hungry,
11 So it is when I declare something.
My word will go out and not return to Me empty,
But it will do what I wanted;
it will accomplish what I determined.
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 who have been emailing and contacting me and leaving comments on other posts about this.. I will try and locate those and get back to you today… if I don’t, please 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:
