Continue, Alert, Listen

Wordle: 2013 Words
It has become tradition to pray and seek the Lord for His direction as one year steps aside making way for the new.  I asked Him for a defining word for 2013 but instead of one word He dropped three into my spirit.

Continue.  Alert.  Listen.

I know there is much to ponder as I wait for His wisdom and revelation.  For now, I set them here as stones, to return to again and again as the days move along.

And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6-7 NLT

Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. Mark 13:33 NIV

A voice came from the cloud, saying, “This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him.” Luke 9:35 NIV

The sheep that are My own hear and are listening to My voice; and I know them, and they follow Me. John 10:27 Amplified

Adding my voice to those who gather at Bonnie's

Well, we share one of your three words, but the other two? So very powerful. Based on your other posts, I can only imagine what 2013 will look like for you. Blessings in this new year as your journey carries on :).

You weave your three words together so well. It makes it easy to see why they go together.

Though I chose a different word this year, the word Persist has been dropped in various places--it's a keyword that God seems to use to get my attention.

Three as one. Perfect. So warm to hear your voice again. It's been awhile, but I feel right at home here. Thank you for laying out your stones from Him: continue,alert, listen - in the faith jam at the beginning of this year, friend.
