My One Word... Make that Two Words for 2017


"And I pray that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to comprehend the length and width and height and depth of His love, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God."
Ephesians 3:17-19
His word to me last year was actually an invitation:
"Search the ends of my love and grace and there you will see me face-to-face."
"And this is eternal life, that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."
John 17:3
He has really been driving this verse home to me. This is our eternal life:

To know Him... To experience Him.

And through Christ and Christ in us, He shows us who He is.
"Then I saw a great white throne and the One who sat on it. The earth and the heavens fled from His presence, and no place was found for them."
Revelation 20:11
And each and every time we experience His presence, we receive a greater sight of Him. And so it goes on and on... Revelation after revelation... And He becomes bigger and bigger in our vision... And everything else gets smaller and smaller.
"I still have much to tell you, but you cannot yet bear to hear it. However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth."
John 16:12-13
He's always with us and He's always calling to us! He's excited about talking to us and sharing with us all things!

So the word for this year isn't just my word, it's your word too: Expect Him!

And expect 2017 to be an amazing adventure!
