Congratulations, you Made it to the year 2019. I hope it was a safe and peaceful journey for you all.
Everything around you may not seem as if things are progressing. Yet there is a huge change coming forth. You know something though. If you do not start actively changing your habits and actively moving forward, then you will never begin to see the changes that you want to see.
I pray for strength, I pray for wisdom, and most of all I pray for peace AND joy this year. For my family, myself, and for ALL of you.
I believe we can make a difference, I believe we can create better goals, values and ideas for our families. But you have to stop with the slow poking and the negative Crap. I know it is hard. But we have to “SET” our minds on God and onto higher things to be able to move forward into another advanced form of living.
We should not live for trivial things. We should not live to make “ourselves” happy or Just to better OURSELVES. We need to remember this life we are living, is not just about US.
I have said it many times before; This website was created to impart wisdom and understanding into my life AND into the lives of others “You!”. But with this new year, brings on a new word.
If you haven’t a clue what I am referencing, then I encourage you to go read the ‘about me’ page and some previous or first articles that were written on this site. The point of a “word”; my word the first year I started doing this was, “overcome” ; I learned a lot and I overcame A LOT. The next year, I pursued wisdom. Then this last year was “understanding” because “with wisdom comes understanding”.
I prayed a lot for which word was needed in my life to reflect on this year. Even though I didn’t overcome EVERYTHING that first year, I learned that I can overcome anything. I also learned that with God all things are possible, and in his word it says,…
” In this world, you WILL have trials and tribulations, but be of good cheer, for I have overcome the world!” (….See below post….. for full verse**)
Which means, not by my own strength but His alone, we can overcome anything. BECAUSE HE OVERCAME IT ALL FIRST.
Its a freeing realization. There is so much power here that I wish everyone could see it.
With the next year (Wisdom), I did not LEARN everything. As much as I wanted to. But I did learn a lot. And I truly believe God showed me a lot. I know he did, and I also learned how to “learn and receive” things better. It was an interesting one.
Then of course, with wisdom came understanding. I was hoping to understand everything. Of course that is not really what God had planned when the Holy Spirit had laid that word on my heart.
(If you have no idea who the Holy Spirit is, please do some research. He is a LOT more then I ever thought He was. So it is highly encouraged that you all go seek the true understanding of Him)
What I think the plan was; Was for Each word to help guide me into a better “understanding” of life and situations. To boost my growth. I learned HOW to understand things, not just learned the meaning of each event, situation, moment, and/or word.
As I thought each time; of what each word was going to bring forth, it was different then my expectations had me thinking it would be. It intrigues me now; for the Word of This Year.
“The peace of God which SURPASSES ALL understanding.” (…See below Post…for full verse**)
The thought for the Word was projected onto my heart. Once it did; I prayed and prayed about it. I never like to take a word from God so lightly. I have to know it my heart it is from HIM, before I feel comfortable to move forward. Then I recieved my three confirmations that I try to wait for each and EVERY time; For all of my answers that are straight from God. After I had received several confirmations, even though I usually settle with three; I knew without a shadow of a doubt; What this Word will be. I have learned from previous years, this might not mean exactly what I would like it to. But I do know, there is a special plan that will always go along with each Word. There are special messages I will recieve. Even though it is by no means a “New years resolution” It is definately and New way of seeing and pursuing our God given Lives.
Hope you are all being safe and are enjoying your holiday season. That is still apon us. Even though for most it ended the 26th. For some it is still shining on. Love you all. Have a blessed night.
