Words are one of my favorite things. I need words. I need to hear them, see them, speak them, write them, ponder them over and over until they make sense.
Some of the words I have been pondering these days: faith, trust, mercy, control, mindfulness, simplicity, enough, dream, passion.
I wanted to pick a word for the year and I finally have my word. TRUST. I want to totally place all my trust in God. God's plan, timing, purpose, and will not only in my life but in the lives of those I love.
Trust is about surrender. It is a decision. It helps faith grow. It is about not needing to be in control.
"The way you live trust is by praise and thanksgiving; to praise and thank God in all things."
Fr. Michael Gaitley, Consoling the Heart of Jesus
