WORD for 2014


Since 2009 I have asked The Lord to give me a word for the New Year.  
2009 Unity
2010 Vulnerable
2011 Persevere
2012 Fervent
2013 Expand

My word for 2014 is FORWARD

for.ward (adjective) 1) near or belonging to the front part of something 2) moving or directed ahead or toward the front & 3) moving toward the future or toward a more advanced state or condition

Oh I love this word!!  The first thing that came to me when He gave it to me, was definition 3 moving toward the future.  When I looked it up and saw definition 1, near or belonging to the front part of something, I really got excited.  

FORWARD feels right!!!  I'm not sure what God is planning to do in my life and walk with Him as He moves me FORWARD and EXPANDS His plans and purposes FERVENTLY. but. I determine to PERSEVERE, and continue to make myself VULNERABLE, as I strive for UNITY in The Body of Christ.

It is so amazing how these words have "built upon themselves" over the past 5 years and I am eager, and very expectant as I move FORWARD.

2014 here we go!!!!

Awesome! It's really neat how the words for each year don't really seem to connect but in the larger picture they do! :)

I love this word and I think it's a word that already fits you well. I agree that your words all build upon each other!

Seems to be a word for us here in south central Missouri as well. On New Years Day the woman at church who has been refusing to become credentialed by our denomination so she can be our pastor came to the house and said "I think I need to move forward in my commitment to the Body here." She asked me to pray with her about the decision. Very exciting.

Them fitting and following so good another way of being able to look back and see how GOD has been taking you 'around'

Well Unity~that was Bill Cloud's message! Thank you so much for letting me know about him as we went yesterday. I had never heard of him but was thankful that you shared. I posted a bit about the trip and will share on the message another time.

Susan~hugs from Bill and I, as we had a lovely day, all because you shared about Bill Cloud.

Oh and Bill also is working to arrange to have Bill Cloud come to our neck of the woods, as so many are awakening!

Hugs to you and your Mickey!

Bill and Jen
