My One Word: MOVE
2012 was both heartbreaking and difficult. My husband passed away suddenly shortly after we started a new business, I lost my job during my grief after his death and our business wasn’t even off the ground. I sent my youngest daughter off to college, my oldest daughter got married, her husband left for Afghanistan with the Navy, my business partner turned out to be a very poor choice in partners and now I am leaving the business behind.
But 2012 was also encouraging and enlightening. During my husbands week long illness and subsequent death I experienced a supernatural peace and closeness with my God. Never in my life had my faith been so strong. In the months that followed my strength in myself and my relationship with Christ grew by incredible gains. Through the devastation, pain, brokenness and hurt I never lost faith. It is only through this relationship that I have come out empowered in 2013.
So the word I have chosen is MOVE. In applying my word in every area of my life I can do nothing but go forward toward the goal that He has called me to. 2013 is the time for me to MOVE onward and upward. Praise God.
