In order to know His voice I had to dedicate myself to time in His word and prayer. Of course this took much commitment which led to many victories as well as short comings.I’ll begin with last year…last year I shared my last journal entry for 2015 in my journaling bible.That entry was from the scripture I used for my focus scripture in 2016. That scripture was John 10:27, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: In order to know His voice I had to dedicate myself to time in His word and prayer. Of course this took much commitment which led to many victories and exposing my short comings. I’m truly thankful for them both. I saw how the Lord showed Himself strong in my weaknesses and frailties. Those victories, led me to many blessings in my spiritual growth because the were used for His glory. One of those things that I saw the Lord show Himself strong, was in my struggle with my children. The Lord led me to a Moms In Prayer group that has given me the support I need so, I wouldn’t feel alone when praying for my children. Having other moms agreeing with you and you agreeing with them in prayer according to the word of God, shows the beauty in the Body of Christ. This clearly demonstrates how we’re to bare each others burdens as well as comforts and encourages us to stand on God’s word for these precious gifts He’s given to us. I’ll GO
I’m excited to see what 2017 brings as I continue to focus on hearing His voice by studying His word and seeking His face.With the these blessings I’ve received in the form of comfort, encouragement and learning to persevere, I’m excited to see what 2017 brings as I continue to focus on hearing His voice by studying His word and seeking His face. My scripture for this year is found in Matthew 28: 18-20, And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. This year I believe the Lord is calling me to start a prayer group to help further the mission of Moms in Prayer.Of course this brings much excitement and much concern. As I begin 2017 I’m leaning and trusting that God will use me to bring other moms to Him as we pray for the souls and lives of our children. How was 2016 for you and what are you excited about in this new year?
