REFLECTIONS FROM PASTOR KIM
My word for 2023 is "Innovate" and I am so excited to know why God has placed that word on my heart! This definition comes from Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Innovate- to make changes; do something in a new way; to introduce as or as if new to effect a change in. Innovate can be both a transitive and an intransitive verb. If we remember back to elementary English classes, a transitive verb is one that only makes sense if it exerts its action on an object and an intransitive verb will make sense without one.
So how will God call me with "innovate" in 2023? I'm not sure, but the word and its meanings are an answer to prayer, so I live secure in the fact that God knows the reason why and how it will work out. Perhaps it is personal; a call to deepen my faith, learning and/or discernment. It could be something that you and I will find out together in our Faith Family. We will have to wait in faith to see.
What are you praying for in the new year? Please remember to not just talk, but to listen to God's reply. His voice is filled with peace and wisdom, whether we stand in the dark or the light. Be intentional in asking God His plans for you and how you should respond. God and I are still working on that part, but I have no doubt He'll fill me in eventually!
