Today’s post is a reblog from “follow the light” by Julie Garro. She has given me permission to do so. I believe your heart will be touched by what you read. God has given me my word and verse and I am well-blessed! Blessed be His Holy Name!
A few years ago, my friend Gennie* challenged our Ladies Bible Study group to do something different than make resolutions for the New Year. She suggested we focus on a single word for the year, a word that would guide us; a word God would lay on our hearts. Within moments God gave me that word – perspective. I prayed and worked on having God’s perspective in all matters, and I think the challenge made a positive difference that year. I also selected a verse to focus on.
I repeated that challenge again last year, and selected the word persevere and Hebrews 12:1 was my guiding verse for 2015. When I selected the word persevere I did not know what challenges 2015 would bring to my family. We had to persevere through many difficulties, including a move that took us more than 1000 miles away from dear family and friends.
