Wednesday in the Word-Happy New Year and New Word for 2015

Well, I wonder how long it will take me to write 2015 instead of 2014? I am usually well into March before it kicks in! LOL! It just seems like last week and it was the new year of 2014! Must be an age thing but dang time seems to fly these days.
I've been praying for several weeks now about what my new word for 2015 would be. For those of you that know me well know that several years ago I began to seek God for a WORD of His choice that would be MY WORD for the new year and that no matter what came and went in life that I would focus on that word.

In 2013 the Lord gave me the word Peace
In 2014 the Lord gave me the word Rejoice.
My word for 2015 is Praise.

 There is so many stories I could share with you about my WORD CHOICES. The word PEACE came at a time that let's just say there was several things I struggled having peace about it but in the midst of those things I would focus on the peace that God gives and not as the world gives. 

With the word REJOICE....there was MANY times over the course of the year that I struggled and struggled hard to REJOICE! Not that I did not love our Lord but simply some of the things I went through and dealt with was hard to REJOICE about. However, I found myself many times saying to the Lord LORD, I do REJOICE in you no matter what comes my way! 

This year my word of Praise will be just that! PRAISE!

Happy New Year! It is my prayer that our Lord blesses you above measure this New Year and that you shall see HIM in your everyday life and know that He is GOD!

  1. PRAISE is a wonderful word for this new year!!! Sometimes God puts events and situations on our plates that we find hard to work through but when we come out of them, we see His true purpose. They make us stronger in faith and in service. Thank you for sharing His word every week! It lifts me every time I read your posts. I'm still praying about my word for 2015. Happy New Year, Cindy! Blessings to you and your family!!

  6. Happy New Year, Cindy. I had a lot of mixed emotions in 2014, mostly had a hard time rejoicing at most times because of my granddaughter Rea having been diagnosed with Stage 4, high risk Neuroblastoma and at the same time so grateful and rejoicing each time she completes a treatment successfully. I know 2015 will be a lot better and I am so grateful to God that He made us get through it all and kept us together so strong and continues to make Rea do well.....Christine

  10. Oh, Cindy, what a beautiful post. I aspire to all those words you do. I love this time of year to have a time to reflect on last year and look forward to all God has in store for us in the new year.
    I appreciate your faithfulness to visit my posts even if lately they have been few and far between. I am finding myself blogging in my head not actually publishing. Not sure where my time and energy goes but I am always working.
    May your new year bring much joy and happiness to you and your family.

  12. Oh, how I wish we lived close to each other! I would love to sit and share how God speaks these words to our hearts. The word He gave you for the new year is something we all need. I will be sharing my word very soon. It is different than in the past and VERY meaningful to both my sweetheart and me. I love the way God speaks to our hearts when we listen.

  13. Hi Cindy! I love this and I'm with you on the word "Praise"! That's where I am in so many ways. Our move up here and also some health issues that have turned out wonderfully! I'm so thankful to the Lord and I am in continuous praise! Bless you sweet friend and to another year of blogging with you.

  16. Great choice of words, Cindy. Praise comes to my mind too. Last night at the stroke of midnight (yes I made it) Gratitude came to my mind and heart. I am so thankful for God in my life. Wishing you many blessing in this New Year.

  17. Cindy,
    Thanks so much for your kind comment!!
    Honestly,
    I do not sleep too much....Never was a sleeper so that is why I do well on full time night shift!!
    I thought of doing a home tour for our church as a fund raiser but parking would be a problem and my townhouse is not really that big to accommodate a lot of people.
    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!!

    Hugs,
    Debbie
