Words for 2013

Really fast, because Giggle and I have some math and reading to practice, I want to mention a few words for the year 2013 that have been coming up on the radar of my life. Several individuals and ministries have been sharing words for the upcoming year. Each one seems to speak to some part of my life.

I'm not going to expand on any of these words today, but I do feel impressed to get them out for others to ponder. Here they are, the words for 2013: Grace, Righteousness, Provision, & Ask. There! Now you can think and ponder on these words too. Try looking them up in a concordance, just to see how God uses them in His Word. If you don't have a concordance in your home, Biblegateway.com has at least one available for use on their website free of charge. Doing this is a fun, fulfilling practice to do with any topic. Right now, I am working on the word wealth. Interesting. Fascinating. Truth-revealing. It is always a good discipline to find out for myself what God says rather than rely solely on the words and understanding of others, no matter how reliable and learned they may be. God's blessings on you and yours today and every day throughout the remaining days of 2013.

Couldn't resist throwing in that extra little quote, just to get you thinking.
