My One Word for 2018 is “Be still;” based on the scripture: “Be still and know that I am God.” It’s hard for me to be still. You say be still is two words. You’d be right but that’s what God said to me through my friend Stephanie. I’ve been doing My One Word for five years. A Pastor from Wilmington, NC wrote the book and had his congregation to go through it. It’s a change your life kind of book.
After God confirmed the “Be still” word for 2018; I got the flu just in time for Christmas. My friend Tina Hunt said; “Remind me what your word is for 2018.” She knew. I laughed and said, “That’s not funny.” She said; “It wasn’t meant to be.” God is so good! He gives us what we need at the time we need it.
I wasn’t thrilled about being home alone for Christmas. My husband and I had already celebrated with our sons and their families. We always celebrate with Ben’s dad, brother, and his family on Christmas day. It was the first time in forty-four years that we didn’t get to go to Paw Paw’s house for Christmas.
My sweet family changed our time together until the following weekend. Barring a snow or ice storm, we will gather next Saturday to celebrate our Christmas time.
I truly want to be able to be still and know that He is God. I stay so busy; many times I can’t even think my own thoughts much less seek to hear the voice of the LORD. I want to hear Him over every other voice.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord, help me be still and know that You are God. Your voice is the One I long for. I magnify Your Name today. I praise You and worship You, Jesus! You are Immanuel, God with us. I love You and trust the One who calls me to His side. In Jesus Name. Amen
