2012 was a year of tremendous change for me. It was a year of unexplainable sickness, quitting the work I love because of said sickness, lots of tears, frustration, questioning, and crying out to God so very many times. But, it was also a year of refocusing on God, growing closer to those I love, realizing how out of balance I was, lots of rest, more time with family and friends, laughter, healthier living, and taking care of myself.
I still don't know why I'm not better, I'm now well into the double digits of doctors I've seen. It's all so very frustrating, but something God keeps telling me in those times of frustration is, "trust me."
Trust me. It sounds so simple, and yet, I make it crazy difficult. I wasn't planning to pick a word for this year, but God keeps bringing this word to mind. I obviously have some growth to achieve in this area. So this year I'm ready and willing to learn all God has to teach me about trust. I want to learn to trust God, with child like faith...or at the very least, get a little bit closer to that kind of trust.
What's your word for 2013? If you don't have one, there is a great list on Ali Edward's blog that might spark some ideas.
