Today, over at Faith Barista we are posting our personal word for 2014. What is the one word that has significance for this year? For me? What word sums up what I am striving for in 2014, just as this year begins to unfold? To be honest, I could spend days mulling this over, as I am wont to do. I’ve decided to not do that this time.

Last night I was reading and came across this quote from John Milton… “Loneliness is the first thing which God’s eye named not good.” Genesis 2:18 The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone.I will make a helper suitable for him.”
From the very beginning we were created for relationship.
Then this morning I read my Jesus Calling devotion by Sarah Young. “I AM WITH YOU AND FOR YOU.” God is our place of safety. He gives us strength. He is always there to help us in times of trouble. Psalm 46:1
God is here. He always has my best interest at heart. His love is all encompassing. My creator wants relationship with me. To Him, I matter.
I can rest in Him.
