My word for 2016 is KNOW, as in be still and Know that He is God.
I wanted to spend time in the Word studying His character and His attributes. I studied, but it feels like I spent most of this year in a classroom or lab learning these truths hands-on. When I was absolutely terrified, overwhelmed and so very sad, I was reminded to Be Still and Know. I had to learn to just let go, and completely depend on Him and trust Him.
That’s not easy for this type A, control freak, and take charge kinda girl.
I know He knew what I would face in 2016, and through it all, I am thankful that I had this gentle reminder to focus on… “Be Still and Know that I am God.”
For the month of December, I’ve been doing the Names of God Bible Reading Challenge with Rachel Wojo. It has been powerful to focus on these names, and to let them sink deep not only into my heart but also into the heart of the little girl inside of me.
