Hello there and welcome to the first Wednesday of 2015!
This week so I am sharing my verse of the year with you along with some other goodies.
I shared how I chose my word and verse of the year in my last post, but I hadn’t yet had the chance to create the WORDart when I posted it so I am playing a little bit of catch-up today.
I used the New King James for this WORDart because I like the way it explains the verse.

I love to have my verse of the year displayed beautifully in my craft studio where I can see it often and this year I designed a lovely watercolor print.
You can download it for your own personal use by clicking on the image above.
I also created a print with my word for the year.
I designed this to use as a wallpaper background for my computer screen so I see it every day. If you would like to have the computer wallpaper, feel free to email me and I will be happy to send it to you.

I can’t wait to see what God is going to do in my life this year. Recently I was praying and I was telling God that “I believe you can take care of this situation.” He said, “But do you trust me to?” I said, “But isn’t that the same thing?” He said, “No, it’s not.” So I went and got my dictionary and looked up the words. Believe means “to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so”. Trust means “1. reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc. of a person or thing; confidence 2. confident expectation of something; hope”. I was so overwhelmed by the second definition of trust…confident expectation. Trust and believe are very similar in their meanings except for the words reliance and expectation. So many times I pray and I feel like He’s God and He’s in control and whatever He wills will be done, and I don’t put a lot of confident expectation into my prayer. Sad, but true. I have felt so completely out of control of my life in the past year that I have almost given up hope or expectation of anything. So this year I have resolved to face each day with anticipation and excitement of what God is going to do. I will face the day with, “This is the day that you have made, Lord, what are you going to do today, what doors are you going to open, what prayers are you going to answer, what opportunities are you going to send my way?” and expect it. I challenge you to do the same.
I pray you have a victorious 2015 and a blessed week.
