The Year of New…

Each October, I take time to sit quietly and reflect on the fact that there are only three months left in the year.  At this time I begin to pray for a focus for me personally, my family and our businesses as we prepare to enter in a new year. I begin to ask God to give me the theme for the new year.  This is a practice I started over ten years ago and I can literally give you the title of each year.  The amazing part is that whatever the theme of that year may be, it unfolds in ways that I would have never have imagined.

 What may seem like a simple definition of the specific word turns into the most unusual definition, sometimes literal and sometimes metaphorical.  

So, this October, October 27th to be exact, I sensed in my spirit that it was the year of letting go, but more importantly and much more clearly it will be “The Year of New.” I immediately understood that the action of letting go will allow for “the new” to take its rightful place. This brings with it a lot of excitement and uncertainty.  I don’t know what this will mean for me, our family and our businesses.  BUT it brings much anticipation.

With new comes the unfamiliar, the strange, being unaccostumed.  It also brings fresh, addition, different, original and unknown.  

All of these things will carry “the New” for our family. 

I challenge you as you read this to sit still enough and pray, mediate and ask God to give you a word that will carry you for the next year.  Once you feel confident of the theme or word, look up the definition and find a bible scripture that you can focus on.  When the going gets tough you can refer to the word, it’s definition and the scripture to remind you of His promise for the year.

Lesson:

Trust what is promised to you by God.  He never fails.

“For I am about to do something new” – Isaiah 43:19
