Anyway, today over at Faith Barista the Thursday Jam is to share one word God has put on your heart for the next year. I have tried by hardest to come up with a really great word. I prayed about it and really thought about what word I will use. OK...are you ready? It's a really good one:
Well, maybe at first glance it's not that great. But when you unpack it...it looks really nice. I looked up the definition, of course, and this is what I found--
*a greater amount, quantity, or degree
*something additional or further
*something of greater importance
Out of all the words I could've have chosen, this one encompassed everything I want this year. I want Jesus. More of Him. A further understanding of His love for me. An additional comprehension of His Word. I want to count my fellow man as more important than myself. My eternity is secured, but how about theirs?
In a nutshell, I want a greater amount of Him than I've ever had. I WANT MORE OF MY JESUS!
I also want to do more of what He has called me to do...whenever I figure that out or He lets me in on it! But in the mean time I am going to cling to my word of the year and my verses:
'This is what the LORD says:
“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls. " Jeremiah 6:16
