Looking back at the beginning of the year, I was reluctant to enter in to the one word vibe, thinking that this one word would somehow form a narrow path in front of me. However, I see just how this one word from God, created something completely opposite in my life. It opened up so much and I am truly grateful, for God gracing me with a word for this year.
In previous years, I used to write a letter to God round December time. A personal letter, that had my fears in, dreams in, questions in, words, expectations for the year - all sorts of things! And I would seal it up and only open it the following year. The beauty, the answers, the awesome - ness of it would just open in front of me. I have neglected that sacred practice and I am determined to start doing it again from this year. Along with this, I have realised that this one word practice (or in my case one prophetic phrase) is actually a really cool thing.
So my word for 2015 was spirit - birth expectancy. Wow, talk about a big one. I don't quite grasp just how much this permeated through in to many areas of my life but what I can say is that, this year has been a great one. Yes, every year has its ups and downs, but the depth and the sojourn, the change and shift in my relationship with Yeshua has been worth it. A change in who I am, in living out God - dreams and growing in my marriage and inwardly its been Spirit - birthed and again, I am thankful.
So here's to all our words, I hope yours was realised this year and that its something to celebrate!
