solc21 #7 chosen words

It is a common practice to choose a “word of the year” as a guide for your life.  I have tried this a couple of times, but I never ended up embracing this idea. I would forget about the word, or half way through the year I wanted to change it.

So I haven’t done it in a few years. I do find it interesting to read about what others have chosen as their word, though. So many people really put this concept to good use. I would often think, “I should give that idea another try.”

For 2021, however, some words have chosen me. A particular Bible verse started “showing up” seemingly everywhere during December, 2020.  It held a lot of meaning for me, especially considering the state of the world these days, and I appreciated the assurance and hope it provided.

My Bible study group decided to share a meaningful verse when we began our new study in January, so of course I chose this one, and I was able to tell those friends how thankful I am for God’s care.

Since then I continue to “find” this verse in multiple places – or it finds me – and often just when I need to hear it most.

So, this is my verse – my wordS – for 2021:

Isaiah 41:10

Thank You, God, for meeting my needs – as You always do.
