Word for 2018 - JOY


Some time back I read something about asking God to show you the ONE WORD that you would focus on for the year.  I have done this for about the last 3 years and it has had a profound impact on me.  When you focus on just one word, it helps with clarity of the direction and things God wants to show you.

Our church just finished our 21-day fasting and prayer and even prior to this time God showed me that my word for this year was JOY!  What a good word and one I really need right now in my life.  I have come to a place where I seem to feel overwhelmed all the time and really feel that I have lost a lot of the joy in my life.  God is so awesome.

I'm excited to hear and learn what God has for me this year.  I know my husband and I both feel that this is really going to be a year of a lot of breakthroughs for us.  We have already experienced some wonderful blessings and look forward to what He has for us this year.

I challenge you to consider seeking God for what one word He would have you focus on for the year.  You might find and learn some truly fascinating things that will overwhelm you with blessings!

Here are some verses about joy :)

Psalms 5:11
But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.

Psalms 16:11
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. [Acts 2:25-28,31.]

Psalms 30:5
For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life. Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. [2 Cor 4:17.]

Psalms 51:8
Make me to hear joy and gladness and be satisfied; let the bones which You have broken rejoice.

Psalms 51:12
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit.

Psalms 71:23
My lips shall shout for joy when I sing praises to You, and my inner being, which You have redeemed.

Psalms 98:4
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises!
