For the past two years, ‘Hope’ has been my word. It was a word I clung to in some pretty rough times, through my marriage almost failing, through moving 10 hours away from home, through career changes that are scary, etc.
But lately the word, ‘Believe’ has been coming up for me. Not in a ‘Believe in Yourself’ or ‘She believed she could and so she did” type of way. No, in a Mark 9:24 kind of way:
“I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”
There are lots of ideas that I ‘believe’ but not in a ‘live my life differently’ kind of way. So this year, I’m praying and seeking to really believe.
