I read a book years ago and the author shared that every year God would give her a verse to focus on for the year. The verse wasn't always one she "liked", meaning it was designed to grow her, but that God would give her one. So, do you have a verse you are focusing on for 2013? I will share mine with you,
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18. Please share your verse.
