Over the past few years, I've had one word for the year that I study, find scriptures that include that word or a synonym that apply and attempt to follow God's lead for those verses.
Late December 31, 2019, the word "Focus" came to mind. Every time I turned around January 1, 2020 the word "Focus" "popped up" ...from the Bible, Facebook :), even CNN and Fox News!! hmmmm...
Isaiah 26:3 – You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed (also means focus) on You, because he trusts in You. (The You meaning, God)
Psalm 119:2 – Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart. (stay focused)!
Your many prayers, words of encouragement and your financial assistance over these 11 years have truly kept me going and focused on what I believe God is still calling me to do... medical missions by which we minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of others. And we share the Gospel, make disciples and teach others to do the same! Each of you are truly a blessing for being a part ...serving right along with me, in person or in spirit! Thank you!!
Since David is doing so well three week out from knee replacement, he has "dismissed" me as his nurse/PT to go with my team to Greece working with refugees. I leave January 3rd. So many sweet friends have donated warm gloves, socks, caps, scarves to take ...it is snowing in Greece!! Please pray as we serve these precious people from war and politically torn countries who are so very cold with few necessities ...and most have no hope ...we know Who that Hope is!! Pray for us to be bold in sharing!
May God bless you as you focus on what HE has in store for you in this new decade of 2020!!
