Unity: Together as One in 2020
Well, you’ve made it! As you open your bleary eyes from celebrating the New Year in until the wee, small hours (allegedly) and scroll your index finger along your news feed wondering if 2020 will be the year that the rapture will happen and we can all be rescued from watching endless videos of Tik Tok. “What is Tik Tok for?”(Asking for a friend). I’m here bright-eyed and bushy-tailed ready for twelve brand new, shiny months to fill with words of encouragement, support and friendship as we navigate 2020 together in unity.
UNITY. That’s exactly what my word for 2020 will be. Because I don’t know about you, but I’m so sick of the locusts destroying my dreams. I’m done with the cankerworm feeding off my thoughts and letting the caterpillar eat away at my confidence just so I’ll step back and shrink away into a corner somewhere, making sure I don’t upset or disturb anyone with what God has called me to do with my life. I’m tired of the enemy whispering that I’m alone in this fight and to just give up because it just ain’t worth the hustle or the hassle anymore.
Too many of you reading these words right now are hanging on to the one little piece you’ve got left of that dream you once had. Before the worms and caterpillars ate their way through the fragile structure of your dreams and calling, it seemed to be budding and starting to grow.
But, God can still use that tiny fragment of a dream and help it to grow if it’s planted in the right soil. I don’t know whether you’ve been reading my blogs for 5 years, 5 months or just 5 minutes ago, know this. You have planted yourself into the right soil. You are among friends, a safe space to just breathe and be yourself because this is your year of breakthrough. The locusts have taken far too much of your dreams already, and now it’s time to fight back.
Over the next four weeks, we’ll be diving into God’s Word to find out in my “THE WORM THAT HAS TO TURN” series what He has to say about UNITY. *Spoiler alert* It goes back to your identity which was my word back in 2016! Amazing how God brings it full circle. Love it!
Over the next four weeks we’ll be learning about:
1. Agreement and oneness
4. And finally, Identity which will stop those pesky pestilences in their tracks.
As I have told you fifty ba-zillion, million times before, you are not alone, my friend. God is gonna zap every bug that’s eaten away at your confidence, dreams, and identity over the years and restore you and your dreams. I know what you’re thinking, ‘It’s too late for me.’ No, it isn’t. Recovering dreams is one of God’s specialities. And after reading my four-part series, “THE WORM THAT HAS TO TURN” you’ll be kicking that ’ol devil around like a boss and sending those worms packing!
UNITY – Together as one in 2020
See you for part one next week!
