When You said, "Seek My face," my heart said to You, "Your face, O LORD, I shall seek."
This year He drew me into His presence and I sat at His feet. Can I continue to seek Him, YES! Will I spend the rest of my days seeking Him more each day, each hour? Yes, as long as I breath I will continue this glorious habit of seeking Him.
But as 2010 comes to an end and 2011 is starting, what is it this year He is asking of me. As I pray I hold my breath, scared of how He will stretch me, excited to see what He has.
Then I read Ann's word for the year and He speaks to me through her beautiful words. This year will be one of no holding back because of the fear and a year of not letting my flesh decide.
It will be a year of Yes! 2011 is the Year of Yes.
Yes, Lord I will obey though it may be uncomfortable
Yes Lord, I will go even though it may require much
Yes to the child who just wants more mommy time
Yes to those in need
Yes to giving until it hurts
Yes to getting outside my comfort zone
Yes can be a frightful word, one that will cause me to tremble but as I learn to trust in His sovereignty I know He will keep me in His loving arms.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?" Then I said, "Here am I. Send me!" Isaiah 6:8
May this year bring you closer to the One who gave His life to spend eternity with you.
What is your word for this year? Or do you have a verse?
