FAITH, my One Word for 2016

FAITH , what does this word mean? It has several different meanings to me and others I am sure. I picked the word FAITH as my one word for 2016 to use in my life. As we move forward into 2016 I realize that I used Faith a little in 2015 but I didn't lean on it, listen to what  God wanted it to mean in my life. We have several big things coming up in 2016 and I really tend to worry a lot about everything. I want to release the worry and have FAITH that God knows exactly what is suppose to happen in my life on a daily basis. It says so in the Bible so why am I not opening my ears to listen to his gentle voice? I am not sure but I hope by joining the One Word 365 movement I will be more receptive, more accountable for spending daily time with God in his word. To listening to what he wants for my life even though I may not see the big picture.

I know I should have been doing this all along in my life. But as an adult this crazy world steps in with everyday things that take my focus off of him and his will for my life. I know he only wants good for me, but in the throws of arguing with my teenager, or a sick child, or my husband making me upset, or my job not going the way I want it all gets lost. But what I notice is the "I" in all these phrases . I need to stop, be still and remember, it's not suppose to be all about me but have FAITH in my God that it's all about him and his will for my life.
Hebrews 11:1King James Version (KJV)
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
