For the past two years as the New year has begun, I have turned my focus to one word I feel led to focus on during the year. The first year was about Letting Go. I spent the year processing emotions that I didn’t even know I had from events I didn’t even remember. It was a work I didn’t know I needed, but it started me on a journey.
Last year, I was still in the works of letting go, but well into the process that still continues. I suspect it will be a lifetime word. I felt led to the word discipline for 2015. It is worse than a four letter word most days. I started out the year really strong, but about five months in my schedule changed. Some of the things I had hoped to accomplish went by the way side. There were areas that I stayed disciplined, and others that I am still working on in my life.
Then in November 2015, in the process of discipline and letting go, I realized the foundational problem I was having was trust. I knew pretty quick that would be the word for the next year.
Even having two months to prepare, I still feel a bit of anxiety just typing the word. I realize now it’s a bigger word to me than discipline. I am scared, but I will take it one day at a time. Here I am committing to it.
I hope to stand on the first scripture I remember learning as a child. Proverbs 3:5-6. I thought I was trusting before, but I was leaning on my own understanding. I thought I was letting Him lead me, but I was directing my path. Here is to 2016 – Trust

Jackie, we seem to be traveling a similar path. I’m encouraged by your words and openness to share them. Although my word is BEHOLD, it is also a trust thing. The more Iearn to trust, the more I behold His Face, rather than turning to others or my own “strength”. Thank you for your words.
We do appear to be traveling a similar path. I believe that 2016 will be a year where His body begins to move in unity, many more will join us on this path. I love the word Behold.
