Abundance by Julie Arduini

Happy New Year! 

It probably doesn’t surprise you that words are important to me.

Beyond writing, I ask God to reveal a word He wants me to focus on for the year. As we welcome 2014, I thought I’d share some of my thoughts on 2013 and the word He gave me.

What was your word, if any, for 2013? 2014?

The word God gave me for 2013 was abundance.

What a beautiful word.

And what a faithful God.

Abundance of healing after losing my mother-in-law.

Abundance of family time with a vacation we saved years for.

Abundance of unity with fellow believers as we chose forgiveness together.

Abundance of God’s provision as we have a new pastor we know God handpicked for such a time as this.

Abundance of time to write so I could finish my first novel.

Abundance of prayers from others to help direct my writing steps.

Abundance of laughter as I navigate life as a wife, mom, writer, mentor.

Abundance of healing as my wrist is well.

Abundance of unexpected blessings as I was able to travel to the Adirondacks with my mom.

Abundance of new opportunities as we close doors and open new ones, with His leading.

Abundance of clothes on our backs and closets.

Abundance of food on the table and in cupboards.

Abundance of words as in His goodness, the Lord gave me TWO words for 2014.

Abundance, abundance, abundance.

Thank you, Lord, for a great year!
