Word for the Year 2017


While thinking about a word of the year for this post I had many words that I thought would sum up the coming year. I kept coming back to another word that just wouldn't go away. 2016 has built up to this word in my life and my walk with my Lord and Savior.


Definition of change:

1.  to make different in some particular :  alter <never bothered to change the will> b :  to make radically different :  transform <can't change human nature> c :  to give a different position, course, or direction to

2.  to replace with another <let's change the subject> b :  to make a shift from one to another :  switch <always changes sides in an argument>

I have been mediating on a few scriptures recently. God has taken me on a path that I never expected. God knows what is best and I'm glad that He took me on a different path. I have more joy and peace in my life. It's not that He changes but, I have changed.

Yeshua the Messiah is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Hebrews 13:8

21 Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:21-23

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?

Numbers 23:19

1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Romans 12:1-2

God reminds me that HE doesn't change. I am the one who is changing and need to continue to let Him change me. Change isn't a bad thing if it's with God. I don’t like change. I like to know what to expect and I don’t like surprises as I am a planner. HE changes us for the better. I need to remember that because, when we let Him change us He is working on us in our hearts, minds, and His will is being done if we are following His path.

Thankfully, He knows what is best for us in every aspect of our life! When we let him guide our paths it's much better than what we could of have ever imagined. 

Are you letting God direct your path? Change is hard but, God knows what changes we need in our walk with Him.  

This coming year I am going to let Him lead me and accept change without trying to fight it!
