When God is beginning a new work in me (and isn’t He always, if I let Him?) he gently nudges me with a word.
Those words or themes have always ended up in my journals as I write through the year, confirmed throughout my reading and in messages; ‘sacred echoes’ of God’s thoughts towards me.
Last year it was the word ‘Fit’–as in, “adaptable or suited to a purpose”. “Fit” as in ‘having a fit’. ‘Fit’ as in, “I don’t……….fit.”
There’s another way (there are many) that the word is used which God made clear to me at the end of 2013–
“the life I have planned for you won’t fit in this container you have; I need to blow it apart and start over again.”
As God continues to enlarge the work in me, the word I’ve been hearing Him whisper for this new year is “anchor”, over and over again.
“We have this hope as an anchor for the soul,
firm and secure,
both sure and steadfast.” Hebrews 6:19
‘anchor’–from the Greek–‘agkos’, a bend, an ache,
as curved or crooked to hold
How I need Him to hold me now.
ANCHOR–that’s my word for this year.
Because He is. Especially now.
