My 2020 Word of the Year

I was really struggling to come up with a word of the year this time around. I was working through my Powersheets and nervously getting closer to the above page where I would need to write something down.

Then one simple night as I was reading from Mom Enough, I was struck by the following quote and my word was discovered:

Like oil and water, trust and worry do not mix. To expel worry from our heart, we must grow deep roots of trust in God.

I have been plagued with a lot of worry and fear this past year. We've had some challenges and I have been consumed at times with worry over the future.

This isn't new, to be completely honest. But it has stood out to me as something I would like to attempt to change, with the Lord's help.

It was suddenly so clear that 2020 would be a year of prayerfully growing deep roots of trust. 

I want to grow in trust over the future. Not only my own, but my children's future. Our financial future. The future state of our world. The future can look so scary at times. I want to trust God with it all.

I want to grow in trust over God's plans for my life in the here and now as well, trusting where He has placed me and the calling I feel led to in this season.

I don't know what the year holds, however, I am hopeful that by the end I will have leaned more on God and grown to trust Him more fully.

Do you have a word of the year? I'd love to hear it!
