Have you noticed how words and sayings become trendy? I’ve noted the term “lean in” has become popular among bloggers. I went back through my book, The 31 Days of Hope, and realized I had used that term in one of the devotions, trends tend to be catchy!
And, trends are interesting. My husband and daughter even tell me that I’m a trend-setter! 2002, late in the year, the Lord pressed heavily into me and spoke HOPE deep within my spirit. It has become the very heartbeat of my life. My family and friends began gifting me with HOPE items! I have HOPE in every room of our home and even have a ‘tree of HOPE’, which stays up all year long. Since that time in 2002 – it seems like everyone began using the word HOPE. Hope is an awesome thing to have!
How about the blessing trend? Remember when the words blessed, bless, blessing used to be considered “Christianese”? Now, everyone uses those words. Yes, I am a trend-observer!
Now, this word is trending.
A couple of those definitions shed some heavenly light, yes?
As a believer, I want to lean on, rest against, be supported by, depend on, rely upon the bedrock Truth of God’s Word. I am one of those people who believe every word in The Word is God-breathed. It is reliable and dependable and I can lean in and rest a while – a long while – a lifetime of while!
Are you leaning?
