A few weeks ago as the year was coming to an end, I was pondering a word for 2019. I had happily settled on my word and went about my day. That night God woke me in the middle of the night, placing a completely different word on my heart. I resisted because it wasn’t what I had settled on. I had settled on the word SLOW… my plan was to take our life down a notch & slow down, be more in the moment, focus on doing less.
Funny thing is… God always has different plans… even when we try to resist Him. Which as I mentioned, I did… However the next two nights in a row he woke me again and placed the same word on my heart… SERVE.
I believe God is calling me to serve more in 2019. To serve outside of my comfort zone. To better serve my family and friends. To serve whenever and wherever He calls me.
“But be sure to fear the Lord and SERVE him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you.” -1 Samuel 12:24
So I have completely opened myself up to be used in the ways He sees fit. I ask for prayer as I embark on this journey. I am both excited and nervous to see where God takes my family and I this year!
I would love to hear if you focus on a word for the year and what it is if you do!
Until next time… happy adventures friends!
