My Word....TRUST



                                                                        Lo·gos
ˈlōˌɡōs,-ˌɡäs/
noun 
Greek for "Word"

My Logos365 word for this year is "Trust." I want to trust in my savior more in 2015 and I know He is going to teach me many things this year and has been working in me already. I have a hard time with trusting sometimes; I want to control the things in my life and force them to turn out the way I want them to, but that NEVER works out...ever!! So this year, I want to learn to let go of control and give control to the One who ultimately is in control. How could I go wrong?

I'm going to get a little "real" here. Since launching His Kingdom Come officially on Nov. 1, 2014 we have come up against some challenges behind the scenes. Challenges technically, emotionally, and spiritually. Living out the word "Trust" didn't just start for me today. God has started early with teaching me how to live out this word (in November). I have already learned to lean on him more through these challenges. I am going to undoubtedly learn many more lessons this upcoming year, but I feel like I have already learned so much. Every time a challenge arises and I want to try and control the situation, He is helping me recognize this almost immediately. I then stop, take a deep breath and pray "Lord, I am going to trust that you will work this out and that it will be for your glory." So much can come out of trusting in the creator of the Universe and I know I have so much more to learn.

I have attached a Bible verse to my Logos  that will be part of my being everyday in some form or another. It is this: "Trust the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding."-Proverbs 3:5. I will study other passages in the Bible that have to do with my word, but this verse will be my "manta" (if you will). I have a sticky note with this verse in front of my art desk and the very first page of my Art Journal as well.









The first day of each month on His Kingdom Come, we will give you some free "prompts" or ideas on how to incorporate your Logos into your life. Come join the site and then join the Logos365 group to receive the prompts. We also have a Facebook Group as well. Come join us and learn to live out your Logos!!

Happy New Year!!
