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. I’m picking a word that I’ve been thinking about already, regardless of the new year. That word is……
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.
relationship is a great word ! i was thinking “harmony”. at first thought they sound superb together in a perfect world. lol wishing for warm but loving the quiet days at home, alone. lol
Dawn, what Sarah said to me today really struck a chord with me. “Trusting acceptance of trials brings blessings that far outweigh them all.” That gives me peace and great hope in the things we are facing.
