When I was brainstorming my word for 2015, I was sure I had it figured out.


That was my word. I have all of these things I want to do, accomplish, try, begin and get going on. So after I picked “action”, I prayed about it. And I felt God telling me that “action” wasn’t my word for this year.

Ok God, what is my word then?

And a soft still voice within me said… “Reset”.

{Insert confusion here}

What? Reset? Reset what?!? To me, it’s not only confusing but frustrating. My original word was a “going forward word” and this one feels like a “headed backwards word”.

But then some ideas of what God might mean came to mind.

This past year – there was some definite healing for me.

There were many sleepless nights spent praying,

hours were spent pouring over the Word,

many mornings were spent watching the sunrise and really getting to see the Creator’s heart for the first time in my life.

Time was spent talking with wiser and older people who have been through their own, different healing journeys…

raw blog posts were written that left me wide open to my friends and family,

evenings were spent at an Anxiety Seminar – where the Holy spirit fell upon me and gave me visions that are forever burned into my mind,

and of course lots of tears shed were in my counselors office.

PS – Did I mention all of the things listed above happened while I was pregnant with my second child?

PPS- Did I mention that my word for 2014 was DEEPER? Careful what you wish for!  🙂


So – after all that? Why RESET? I’m ready for ACTION Lord!

And then I’m reminded that while there was a lot of progress made in 2014, He is not finished with me yet. There is still lots of healing to be done in this little girl. I decided to look up the definition for RESET and this is what I found:


verb \(ˌ)rē-ˈset\

1: to move (something) back to an original place or position

2: to put (a broken bone) back in the correct position for healing

3: to put (a gem) into a new piece of jewelry

So now it makes a tiny bit more sense.

Perhaps in 2015 He wants to take me back into my “original place or position” with Him. {For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated {positioned} us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6}

Maybe before I go full force into action this year, I have to let the Lord come in and take the broken pieces {bones} and put them “back in the correct position for healing”. {He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds. Psalm 147:3}

And maybe this year He wants place a new gem in the “jewelry” He has placed on me. {I am overwhelmed with joy in the LORD my God! For he has dressed me with the clothing of salvation and draped me in a robe of righteousness. I am like a bridegroom in his wedding suit or a bride with her jewels. Isaiah 61:10}


I’m still not totally sure what God means by RESET, but I’m terrified excited to see what He has in store for me in 2015. Stay tuned…
