My word for this year is from one of my favorite verses from Jude 1:1b- 2:
To those who are called,
beloved in God the Father
and kept for Jesus Christ:
May mercy, peace, and love
be multiplied to you.
KEPT is my word for this year. I am kept by Jesus. It’s pretty awesome to me to know I will never be rejected by Him, will never be disowned and He will never turn away from me. He won’t say He does not have enough time for me – or, I will talk to you later. And as I am KEPT by Him, He says I am one of His called and His Beloved in God the Father – not in some special group or religion. Not in a specific culture or color of skin. As Believers we are His… always His, kept as His and His beloved. Sometimes it’s pretty difficult for my brain to wrap around that kind of complete, unconditional love.
And beyond being KEPT as His Beloved…He wants so much more.. mercy, peace and love to be multiplied for us. Could we really ask for more? Isn’t that complete? WOW!

Below is a necklace that a friend gifted to me from KraftyKash on Etsy who makes these handmade jewelry pieces from vintage Atlas, Dictionary, Bible and Sheet Music. It has my verse and word of the year, “KEPT” on it and Beloved shows too! :)
