Every year I choose a theme to focus on. Sometimes my theme comes to me with ease and other times it’s not that easy. Last years theme was Elevation! That theme came to me pretty easy. I knew that God was calling me to elevate in certain areas of my life that was going to make a major difference to the clients I serve.
But this year took a little thought. I threw around a couple of words like Domination and thought about even using my friend Gail’s theme for the year; Completion. Although both of these words are very fitting and I’m sure I will probably circle back to them in years to come, neither of them captured the essence of what I needed right now.
Then one day a couple weeks ago I was praying asking God His will for my life in 2016 and I heard Him say, “in 2016 I needed you to put all your faith in me that I will do all the things I said I would do in your life and I want you to believe in yourself that you can reach the vision I have given you”!
Wow what a message, so welcome to the year of Faith and Belief!
Here’s why this theme is so fitting for me right now. I don’t know about you but sometimes even though I have a relationship with God I get away from believing He can and will do amazing things in my life despite my circumstance.
I faced so many difficult challenges 2016 and during some of those challenges I found myself depending way too much on myself to fix the problems vs. relying on God who is the ultimate problem solver. I got away from believing that He could fix it and started depending on myself to do everything. But this year I’m so happy that God wanted me to have a constant reminder that He can do all things and I am capable of doing all things through Him who strengthen me.
So I’m inviting you to join me in this year’s theme of faith and belief. I know God has so many blessings in store for your life and I’m praying that 2016 is your best year yet!
This Week’s Message: 2016 is the year of Faith in God that He can do all the things He said He would do regarding your life and belief in yourself that you can live out the vision He has given you regardless of your circumstances.
This Week’s Assignment: Write down all of the promises God has made to you and keep them in a place where you can re-read them often as a reminder to have faith in God.
Secondly write down the vision and goals God has given you for 2016. Also keep them in a place where you can see them and continuously remind yourself that you can and will reach your vision and goals if you believe.
