As we reflect on 2017 and look toward 2018 we think about all that God has done in our lives. What are your words and songs for 2018 as you start fresh? Here are ours! We hope you are encouraged, inspired and full of hope for the coming year.
WILLINGNESS….. to receive help, to give to others, to trust God—who he says he is and what he will do–with all that is unresolved.
My word is FREEDOM. Prayers of power all around God’s people. Walk strong in the wild. We are free from addiction, distraction, despair. Holy Spirit in us, we see with His eyes. Joy in the middle of the mess.
The song: Wonder by Hillsong
I see the world in love
I see the world in freedom
I see the Jesus way
You’re the wonder in the wild
My word is actually 3 words, because it goes with the song: “So Will I”
This is one of my favorite Hillsong songs. I find new layers and depth every time I listen.
The song Whole Heart by Brandon Heath resonates with me…reminding me to drop my guard and trust in God. To let Him see my brokenness …to welcome His healing, kindness and love. So that I might be better prepared to share it with others.
I have a phrase this year instead of a single word and it is “I Give You Control.” This song from Tenth Avenue North really hits home as I work to let God lead each of my steps, to banish fear and worry and to look to Him for my purpose daily.
