Pursue

Usually on the first of  January I receive a word that sets the course for the year. But this year I’ve struggled with hearing a word for 2012.  It has been very discouraging and the month is nearly over! Until today.

Today I heard so simply. The Hebrew word, Radaph, means to follow after or attend closely upon. This year I will  devotedly seek after the things God has for me   This word  has another meaning as well.  It can mean to chase away or put to flight. So this year I will remove, with the same intensity, that which should no longer be in my life.

My One Word for 2012 is:

Pursue.

Pursue God’s will for all of my life.

Pursue the dreams He has placed inside me.

Pursue the desires of my heart He has appointed for me.

Pursue removing sin in my life.

Pursue the relationships he brings into my life.

Pursue the abandonment of knowing Him.

Pursue the beauty of His creation.

So David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I pursue this troop? Shall I overtake them?” And He answered him, “Pursue, for you shall surely overtake them and without fail recover all.”     I Samuel 30:8

Time for Everything

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:  a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;  a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;  a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;  a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;  a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;  a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;  a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. Eccl 3: 1-8
