It is now 2015…that means it is time for a new start. This year I wanted to try something new. I wanted to pray for my word of the year. The one word I will focus on all year and the one that God gives to me.
I have felt many words come to me, but only one is sticking the most…TRUST.
Trust (noun) a belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, ect. Assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something, one in which confidence is placed ("Trust." Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 1 Jan. 2015. http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/trust).
I am going to use my word to help me remember to TRUST God in all things in my life. I need to know that He knows what is right or wrong for me. He has plans that I don’t know about, and I need to TRUST that this is the way it is for His purpose, not mine.
Not only do I need to TRUST Him with the plans for my life, I need to TRUST Him with the small things too. I need to TRUST Him in the plans for this blog. I know what I want to have happen, but it is not up to me. I will pray and put my TRUST in Him that I am able to do what He wants me to with this blog.
I need to TRUST Him with my children. I need to know that I am doing what is best for them with His help. He has plans for us, and I need to TRUST Him.
This may sound small to some, but I have a hard time with this. I like to be in control, and putting my TRUST into someone other than myself is hard. Everything in my life is happening because of the plans He has for me and I need to slow down and TRUST Him!
Did you find a word to focus on for 2015? I would love to hear what yours is!
