I usually pray about the upcoming year the day after Christmas, and the Lord lays something about the new year on my heart. It always varies, but He always gives me something. Last year He laid it on my heart that it would be a year of hope and fulfillment. And was it ever! I was filled with hope of having a baby, a promise not yet fulfilled. On January 8th, 2017, just 8 days into the year God said was a year of hope and fulfillment, we found out I was pregnant. In September, our beautiful first born baby was born. God fulfilled many other promises in 2017.
“And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God” Deuteronomy 28:2
This year, I believe God has put it in my heart that it is a year of increase and blessings! Not just in the financial realm, but in every area of life. I am excited to be overtaken by the blessings of God! I am excited to grow in my relationships and see them blessed. I am excited to see how God uses me and my family to be a blessing to others this year as well.
I wish you and your family a very happy new year full of the blessing of the Lord!
