This hope we have as an anchor of the soul. A hope both sure and steadfast and one which enters within the veil. ~Heb. 6:19 

I began 2015 pretty distracted. My thoughts were not focused where they needed to be and that was manifesting itself in my actions and decision making processes. Thus, I chose STEADFAST as my word of the year. It’s been a beautiful journey how Jesus has answered this prayer almost word for word.

A few observations: 

  • I can only stand firm through the strength He gives and He is faithful to give it. In choosing to be steadfast, I realize how unwavering He really is. 
  • Steadfastness builds trust — both ways (God <—> Me / Me <—> Others).
  • Steadfast is about choosing to believe/stand for/chase after Truth; and in that Truth is freedom
    -to love big and without expectations
    -to be a better leader by meeting people where they are
    -to find peace in being patient
    -to be comfortable and unapologetic in my identity
    -to chase the dreams He’s planted within me

Thank you, Jesus, for being steadfast that we might be steadfast. Thank you for building an unwavering trust one decision and circumstance at a time. Thank you for teaching us to find freedom in rooting ourselves in you. You are worthy of glory, our Rock and Anchor. 

 

the paths of the Lord are steadfast love and faithfulness ~Ps. 25:10
