Do you choose #OneWord for your year?
Maybe you choose a Scripture?
Maybe you choose a phrase, or nothing at all?
I would sure love for you to share with me in the comments what you do and what God has been speaking to you regarding this coming year.
I have only been participating in the #OneWord movement for 4 years.
Each year it seems that I get to the end of the year and I’ve already felt an urging or nudge in a certain direction, but this year, has been more of a wrestling match with God.
I wanted a word or phrase that seemed a little safer. A road more traveled maybe. But apparently that is NOT what God wanted for me. He wants to stretch me and take me deeper. He wants to grow my faith and my courage. He wants to increase my boldness for prayer and belief, or so it would seem.
Even though this year’s word had been pinging around in my head, I never let it drop into my heart. Until a few weeks ago.
Truthfully, I think I was a little afraid. Afraid of what others might think of this word – (who does she think she is?). Afraid of what God might require of me and maybe afraid of failure too.
I know it seems strange but when you see the word, maybe you’ll better understand.
My #OneWord for 2019 is …
This word is so full of hope, power and possibility. This word is bigger than anything I could ever do on my own. It’s bigger than anything any of my friends or family could help me with. This word, “Miracles” requires a total dependence upon God. It requires me to go deeper and further in my faith that I have ever have before. It will require me to go deeper, trust more fully and be more courageous. I will need to surrender to God and obey 100%. But I am desperate to see this word manifest in the lives of those I love and in my own life and our church too.
God is a God of miracles! From Genesis to Revelation, we read of His mighty works and His powerful Display. He is a God that never changes and He continues to do miracles today.
As I read the New testament and study the book of Acts, I see miracles were a normal part of their lives. Jesus healed the sick and those who were lame, blind or deaf. He also showed His disciples how to do it. But the miracles He performed went beyond healing. He multiplied food, calmed storms, brought the dead to life and turned water into wine just to name a few.
Miracles followed those who followed Jesus and it increased the faith of those who saw or participated in it.
I want to have Great Faith. I want to believe God for the impossible and see Him move mountains. I want my friends and family members to receive their miracle healings.
Ephesians 3:20 is one of my life verses and God has been challenging me about it lately. Almost daring me if you will:
Debbie, do you believe that I (God) can achieve infinitely more than your greatest request? (healing my loved ones of cancer, and other sickness).
Debbie, will you allow My(God’s) mighty power to work through you to accomplish things?
This year is going to be an exciting one. One of learning, stretching, equipping, trusting, growing and expanding. At times, it may even be a battle, but I know God is always Victorious. It is going to be a year of wholehearted abandoned to God and His Word. It’s going to be an extraordinary year.
Thank you to all who have been praying for my family and loved ones. I have been at home caring for my dad and saw a miraculous turn around in his condition in the 10 days I was with him. My aunt who is on hospice has already lived longer than the doctors predicted, we are continuing to pray for a miracle, she has a lot of life yet to live. And then the others who I am praying for to receive a miracle, there stories and testimonies are still in process. Please continue to pray for God’s miracles to touch them and all who need it.
