The Year of MORE - Recap

Last year I chose MORE as my one word for the year.

When I chose this word, I had spiritual intentions. I sincerely wanted MORE of God and I thought it would manifest itself in tangible blessings in my life that I could quantify - i.e. more things, nicer job, more blog followers, etc

Instead what happened was God chose to use many circumstances not of my choosing to draw me closer to Him, and so I reaped intangible blessings, the biggest being I learned to trust and rely on God MORE. MORE became synonymous for TRUST.

I thank God for all of it, for I've learned that in trusting it is easier to experience peace in spite of what we are going through. I've learned that God uses relationships - particularly marriage and parenting to mold you in to his character. I've learned that when things seem hopeless, with God we can always hope.

This year, I want to remain OPEN to whatever God will do in my life. I know that He doesn't think like me, so when things come along, I will attempt to view from a heavenly perspective and walk with him through it hand in hand.

I have no words for the new year, just an attitude - OPEN.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20 - 21
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord.“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

What are your thoughts as you head in to the new year?
