My word for 2014 was Set. As I reread my post from last January, I was struck by how much happened in 2014. Truly, it was a year of launching off the starting block and swimming full-speed down the lane. Now, as we’ve just begun another year, I’ve been thinking of what word might stick with me in 2015.
I was introduced to this song a couple of days ago, and I have been playing it on repeat ever since. It speaks to my spirit like a mantra, and I think the word I will choose for 2015 is Brave. The song is so beautiful; just close your eyes and listen to the words.
“You call me out beyond the shore into the waves.”
“No fear can hinder now the promises you made.”
“Champion of heaven, you made a way for all to enter in.”
YOU make me brave, Lord! I have accomplished nothing in my own strength, my own power, my own anything. YOU have given me strength; YOU have empowered me; YOU are my everything.
The Champion of heaven is on my side. What have I to fear?
