I stumbled upon this support piece for a picnic table washed up on the beach
when I was there early this week for a quick little getaway with a friend.
Some other beachcomber must have set the piece upright.
Right away what I saw was a capital letter A.
A couple of weeks ago, I felt like my word for the coming new year was to be joy.
However, I began to doubt, thinking I just wanted my word to be joy because it was such a more pleasing, more joyful, (of course), word than the word trust which has been my word for 2013.
I kind of knew that if my word for 2013 was going to be trust,
then I was going to face situations requiring trust.
Sure enough, I certainly have.
Yet, God confirmed my choice of the word in many different ways, so I was confident that it truly was the word He had given me knowing ahead of time that I would need to grow in that area.
Sunday morning as I was sitting in church I had an inward conversation with God about the word joy,
asking Him if I had just chosen the word myself or if it truly was the word He wanted for me in 2014.
As clear as could be I heard Him speak to my heart,
"I want you to learn what it really means to enter into the joy of your salvation."
And so, I'm asking in His name, for Him to lead me on this journey
of learning to really enter into His joy.
