Word of the Year, Soar.

Ever since church last Sunday, I can’t seem to get one word out of my head. It just keeps resonating with me. The service was about how we are all made in God’s image. And of course, that means as man. But there are other images that prophets use to describe what they saw when looking at God in the bible, such as the lion, the ox, and of course the eagle.

Eagles are amazing creatures. Where other birds take shelter from the storm, they lock their wings and use the strong wind currents to soar higher and higher above it. They literally soar over life’s storms.

Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31

I want to SOAR in 2013.

To fly higher in all aspects of my life – with my children, my husband, my church, my friends, and my blog. To reach new heights, and when the going gets tough to lock my wings and Soar.  Let’s soar together.

Have you ever had a word that has just resonated with you?


Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…

Happy Sewing!

    I really needed to read this post! I’m at a stage in my life where I have to trust the LORD in a big way. I am a new mom (believe it or not, that is the easy part) having to return to work. And that is SO not where my heart is! So I will take this word and really ponder on it, and let it work its way through my life – yes, let’s SOAR above life’s storms and trials! May your 2013 be amazing!
