The word for 2015 was Thirst. And it really didn't grab me. I did some journal pages for the first three months.
But to be honest, my heart wasn't in it and at the beginning of April I gave up on it altogether.
I have spent most of 2015 being really busy helping to run His Kingdom Come. You can read about how I became to be involved with HKC at A Story & a Giveaway (the giveaway is now closed!) and I expected to be involved with it still through 2016. In fact we started discussing Take Me Deeper - DNA back in April.
However towards the end of October I began to feel that it was time for me to move on.
Several times in my ministry career I have worked on things that God has asked me to do – setting up new ministries, organising conferences and even helping set up a new company – and then passing them on to others to run. To be sure that I was hearing correctly about HKC, I asked a friend to pray for me without saying the reason why and she said ‘You are gifted and know sometimes things are for seasons.’ This confirmed for me that the season was ending for me with regard to the Foundation Team at His Kingdom Come.
But giving up something that is successful without God saying what is next is bittersweet and I'm not good at just resting or not knowing what is coming next.
So what is next for me? And what is my word for 2016?
Regular readers will know that I am involved in a new weekly online Bible study from my church: Glimpses of Jesus in the Old Testament. And that I have signed up for rather a lot of online classes.
And my word?
I'll explain why in another post on Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by.
