Empty and Encounter.

My word for 2014 was empty.  And to be completely honest with you I had to look back to even remember what my word was.  Of course my kind of photographic memory shower me exactly what the word looked like but didn't let me actually see the word.  Just because I didn't remember the word doesn't mean that I suprisingly and not so suprisingly recognize the ways the Lord has allowed that word to work in my life this year.  Graduating and starting life in a new city I could recognize just how empty I was and just how much I need the Lord to fill me.  Having had to make a handful of big decisions this past year I have had to empty myself of my own stress and emotions in order to be filled by his grace to make a decision.  Still looking back to the first half of the year before I graduated and while I was still at Franciscan again over and over again the Lord emptied me of my myself so that I could be filled with him.

After some prayer the Lord quickly whispered that the word for this coming this year was encounter.  I don't know yet what the Lord's plan is for my coming year but I want to truly encounter all the people in my life-my patients, co-workers, friends and family.  I am excited for whatever adventures the Lord has planned for me in 2015.

  1. Both beautiful concepts - can't wait to see how God uses encounters to move you and people around you in 2015 :-)
