Happy New Year! Something about the first day of the new year brings a readiness to begin again. Yesterday is gone and just like that there is a brand new blank canvas in front of you ready to dream BIG with God and paint something beautiful for the year ahead..which in this case happens to be 2017.
Anyone who really knows me knows that I LOVE HEARTS and I have since I was in my teens. If you come over to our home you will see them around our house, I wear heart jewelry and yes I enjoy putting my heart into things. But sometimes I have found that I put my heart into the wrong things…it’s the split second decision that I make and unfortunately it is the wrong one.
So as I began seeking God for my ONE WORD for 2017 and I was not surprised when GOD confirmed that word would be ABIDE. What I love about this is that God is always wanting and waiting to be in relationship with me. It is I who have chosen other things at times and not made God a priority. How thankful I am that I can start fresh each day with all my heart. God’s Word says New morning, new mercies~Lamentations 3:22,23.
Jesus is the answer. He is the One that fills the gap between Heaven and Earth for us. He is everything and it does not get anymore personal than this. I pray as you begin 2017 you will trust God as you let Him direct not only your path but your DREAMS in every season!
