When I began to think about what word I was going to choose for 2023, one word echoed loud and clear. I tucked the word away thinking it couldn't be that easy. Last year, the Lord didn't give me my word until January. I prayed about the goals I am trying to accomplish and for a word to help keep me centered and focused throughout the year. The same word kept nudging into my heart.
In 2023, I'm trying some different things―things that if I spend too much time thinking about how it's going to all work out, I get overwhelmed. I know that if I try to figure out and work things out myself, these things or ideas will not happen. God has to be in it and I have to be perceptive enough to listen to Him and patient enough to let Him work.
