My 2016 Promise

I have been reading tons of posts recently on people's Word of the Year. These have been some of my favorite posts to read in the beginning of this year. They always inspire me. 

This year I definitely have a word, but I think even more importantly I have realized that I have a promise for the year as well. Something that God is constantly whispering over my life, day in and day out, as I proceed through my daily tasks.

God speaks to us all in different ways because we are all different beings. People feel and connect to life in multiple ways and God, being the creator of all things, knows exactly how each of His children connect to the world. God truly uses these connections to speak to His loves.

For me, that connection really comes from music. I have intimate dialogue with my father through the sound and feels of music. I become instantly aware of what it is He is speaking into my life in that moment.

Through music, God has communicated to me my 2016 promise. If I'm being completely honest, the end of 2015 was really difficult for me. My heart was truly struggling with my direction, my relationships, and my sense of self worth.

And then this promise was whispered into my ears over and over...God truly is my good good father.

Now that may not seem like a crazy promise but to me it is a reminder of everything I've needed to hear. When I struggle with where my purpose is in life, I am reminded that He is a good good father and that the stress of that situation is off of me.

The Word of God says,

For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, 
and to him who knocks it will be opened. 
For what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, 
will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, 
he will not give him a snake, will he? 
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, 
how much more will your Father who is in heaven 
give what is good to those who ask Him!
Matthew 7:8-11

I fully understood this verse as soon as I read it. My daddy here on earth is such an incredible man and someone I have spent my entire life looking up to. He has taught me what real generosity looks like and that has brought me closer to God in our relationship. It as helped me to understand God's love even more!

So if my daddy here can be incredible and loving, then how much more is my father in heaven a good and beautiful father to me. The creator of the universe has my life in His hands and is conducting my steps, giving me the desires He has placed in my heart along the way.

So this year as I dream a little bigger, reach a little further, and grasp for the things in my heart, I know that I have my good good father holding me tightly. And I know that I can accomplish all things with him next to me, directing my path.

I also wanted to share some of my favorite "Word of the Year" posts with ya'll so you can be as inspired as I've been!

Do you have a word or promise for the year? I would love to hear it!!
