From Steadfast Hope… to Empowerment

"So, my dear brothers, since future victory is sure,
be strong and steady, always abounding in the Lord’s work..." 1 Corinthians 15:58 
Last year (2014) my word was steadfast. This year’s has been hope.

Steadfast kept me going forward, not giving up, pressing on, unwavering, resolute, committed… and I did. By the strength of the Lord, the stresses of moving twice in 18 months and losing two brothers—mine & my husband’s—within 3 days, I did not fall completely apart.

Moving Back to Normal Not-Normal


Then Jesus said to the man,
 “Stretch out your hand!”
He stretched it out,
and it was restored to normal...
Matthew 12:13 nasb

Me: “I wish life would get back to normal.”

My neighbor: “There is no such thing as normal.”

Me: “Yeah, but I’d just like to get back to a more normal not-normal.”
