my Word for 2019 – STEEP


Not the word I expected to hear when I was spending some time praying about the upcoming year, yet as I unpack what it means to me right now at the start of 2019? I am amazed at how perfectly this word fits for me!

Word: “Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” Matthew 6:33 MSG

Worship: “Waiting Here for You” -Martin Smith & Jesus Culture

Letter by Letter:

Overall Impressions:

This year requires me to STAY DEEP.  To STEEP myself in Him, laying all at His feet, resting in His Presence, trusting in His Promises no matter what, believing in who He is, His love & His might, and following wherever He leads me.

On an interesting note for this word geek, when you bracket the extra letters in STAY DEEP to show only STEEP…. so like this ST(AY D)EEP, it reveals that staying deep with God allows Him to come to our AID. Talk about mind-blowing revelation! 🙂

I cannot wait to see how He is going to move as He leads me through 2019 while I wait upon Him.

PS. I made a phone screensaver for myself to help me remember this key word for me in 2019. And as maybe this verse has impacted your heart too, I am sharing it below for you to use, my freebie to you! (Right click on the image below to download it)
