1. Michelle, you have been a joy to me. May your eyes be open to the flow of God’s favor upon you in 2018 and your joy contagious to those around you.
    Today’s message moved me to seek my word for the Holy Spirit to work through me in 2018. Therefore, the one word that will be my motivation and inspiration is perseverance. Writing skills have been my weakness and fear. For over 10 years, I’ve run away from writing my testimony even when asked for my story by publishers and film producers. Choosing “perseverance” and holding onto Ephesians 6:18-20, 2018 is the year with the help of the Spirit of God, I’ll have the first draft complete and print ready. Only prayers along with strong purpose and perseverance will see that sharing through writing how God lifted up an abandoned, abuse and rejected girl will get done.
    Thank you, Michelle, for your post today. It moved me to take action on the first day of 2018. You shine!
    Uplifting blessings.

    1. Happy New Year Carolyn! I love your word and will be praying for you as you write and I look forward to reading your powerful testimony. The Lord will go before you and will be with you. I am so excited for you, and you are a joy to me as well. My kids love to drink hot tea now, and it always reminds me of you. I will be praying for you and encouraging you throughout the year. With His help, we can do this! Blessings to you this New Year!!

  2. Happy New Year, Michelle! I love your word and pray that you have a year full of joy and know God’s presence with you each step of the way. My word for this year is focus.

    1. Thank you Leslie. Happy New Year to you!! I love your word focus and that you included the verses and songs! I’m looking forward to seeing God move in our lives. Blessings to you as you focus in 2018!

  3. Joy, my word for this year is joy… 🙂 I knew right away it’s the one when it came to me. I find it really challenging as it should be felt deep within regardless of any circumstances and I’m a bit afraid of how much challenging it could become but I can’t deny it’s “the word”. Wishing you to be guided and accompanied by this beautiful word.
