The Obedience Adventure
I have been praying for a few days for a word God would want me to meditate on this year. While talking to Joel about it a couple of days ago I shared that I felt the word might be surrender. At that moment the word obedience resounded in my brain. Really? Hmmmmm I told Joel about that word coming through but I did not think that was a very inspirational word...so I kept praying. I was hoping for something like....faith, joy, love acceptance.....something I was more comfortable with.
This morning when I woke up I prayed again about the word and asked God to let me know if obedience was the word or was there another word for the year. I turned on the TV to Joyce Meyers and she was speaking about......you guessed it! Obedience!
I came downstairs and decided to read a few blogs and came across a verse in Deuteronomy at Deb's blog, Jeremiah 29:11, that spoke about reading the Bible daily and obeying God's instructions. Okay. That was enough for me. Not only was I planning to get into some deep scripture reading on a daily basis once again, but now the obedience word was going to be a part of that.
So, I am going to be meditating on the word "obedience" this year. I don't know where it will take me, I don't know yet what God will reveal to me, but I know that He has a plan and I am looking forward with a bit of apprehension to what He is going to teach me through meditating and studying this word in His Word. I plan to share it here...as part of my adventures in faithful living. Let the journey begin!
