I love the start of a new year! I enjoy when the year is filled with promise! I get excited about all that God has in store for the next twelve months.
If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you know that I like to prayerfully choose one word to help define the upcoming year.
I’m delighted to share that my one word for this year is:
After many years of waiting and preparing, the Lord is releasing me and allowing me to live out many dreams that I have been hoping and praying for for a long time.
I believe God wants me to dream bigger and to reach new heights.
I’m reminded of the following Bible verses:
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” (Isaiah 40:28-31)
Did you catch what happens to those who hope in the Lord? They will renew their strength and SOAR on wings like eagles. I love it!
Waiting on God is not in vain and it doesn’t last forever. There is a time and season for God’s promises to be fulfilled. Glory! As it says in Ecclesiastes 3:1, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”
I’m looking forward to God surprising me and astounding me in 2017 and beyond!
What does this mean for Abounding Faith? It means you can look forward to my third book being released, God willing, in the spring!
