A Blank Page
New dreams...new hopes...new challenges are all a part of what could be written on this page.
Last January my "perfect word" was hope...it became my focus and what I held onto during my Dad's illness and death. It continued to sustain me as we moved forward to meet the changes that come with losing someone dearly loved.
With the coming of 2018 I believe God's perfect word for me is "new". To explain how I know this is the word for me would be too lengthy to post - so to keep it simple I didn't choose this word it just kept showing up until I knew it was the one!
Funny how God has a wonderful way of letting us know certain things at certain times. Guess we just have to be listening!
What new things may be coming
is yet to be discovered. Looking forward to seeing what will be written on that blank page.
How about all of you ? Is there a "perfect word" you will share? Hope you will - I would so love hearing yours.
Before I sign off will leave you with a scripture that seemed to confirm my "perfect word" for 2018.
"Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:18-19.(NIV)
