New Year’s Day

Psalm 51 10

So it is the start of a new year with endless possibilities.  For this year, I have chosen my main word of the year to be “create” and I shared yesterday why.

But I have chosen two other words as well.  I have chosen “delight” from the verse Psalm 37:4, “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart”.  I want to choose this year to delight in the Lord, in my family, our church, our homeschooling and life in general.

Another word I have chosen is “faith” from the verse Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is the evidence of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.”  This is one of Dennis’ favorite verses to preach on and I love hearing it.  It speaks to my heart and my soul.

Finally another word I have chosen is “trust”.  I know in the coming months with Dennis reenlisting and preparing to also enroll in the seminary for his masters degree in divinity and the possibility of an impending move from PCS orders, trust is going to become important.  I love the verses found in Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths.”  I loved hearing this verse in the movie, “Flywheel”.

So what is your word and/or verse for the year?  I look forward to hearing from you.
