My word for the year is as follows...
"...For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future..."
Hope...that I can change patterns in my life that are not positive. Hope...that my friends who have experienced heartache can experience joy this year.
HOPE....choosing to HOPE this year instead of allowing sadness and grief to overwhelm. Choosing to hope in the future that is promised to us as believers in the gospel of Christ.
So today, the first day of 2011, I will HOPE. And I will try to pursue life with HOPE all year long.
