I've had words in the past. Words that I hoped would shape my year, give me focus. Words God used to shape me. Strong words.
This year my word is a simple preposition–leaving the before and after to be written.
Lord, I need x-ray vision– the ability to see beyond the present circumstance, the temporary annoyance, the overwhelming task, the stinging pain. Beyond myself. Beyond my desires. To embrace the blessing of the moment, to see through the lens of your purpose, to be filled up with light.
