Word for the Year: Hope

When I chose Joy for my word of the year for 2015, I was thinking more about focusing on enjoying each moment as it came & not always wishing for the future. It wasn’t until months later when things got difficult that I realized one of the verses I hadn’t thought about was James 1:2: “Consider it all joy, my beloved brethren, when you encounter various trials” It sort of felt that by choosing Joy I had invited trials to test my ability to be joyful. I know that isn’t actually the case & I also know that God gave me the strength, & yes, even moments of joy, as we walked through some hard months.

This year I just felt as though my word for the year was simply placed in my mind.

HOPE.

After a few months of upheaval I am hopeful that we are in a place of calm, a place we can call home, a place that God has led us to where we can be a blessing.
