The Year of the Extreme goodness of God

and DREAMS coming true!


Hello to all of you! I can't believe how quickly Christmas Day has come and gone! This year has gone by incredibly fast, too. This time every year I always start asking the Lord to reveal to me what He sees for us in the upcoming new year. As many of you know God talks to me in rhymes, acronyms, and repeated words. So in my meditation time the other night I kept hearing God saying, "the year 2017." I would then repeat to God what I heard and then He begin to expand His thoughts for our upcoming year!
One of the times I repeated to God the phrase, "the year 2017" - I heard in my spirit the word "extreme." So I started to say, "2017 extreme" over and over out loud. Then I heard the still voice of God say, "goodness." So I had the phrase started about the New Year, "2017, it is to be a year of the extreme goodness of God!" I don't know about you but this was such great news! This year, 2016 has been one of my most difficult years ever. Some months I struggled just to stay in the game! But God! He would pull me out over and over again. So I gladly received that the New Year-2017 will be filled with God's extreme goodness.
As I was wrapping up my time with God that evening, God began to elaborate a little more with 2017. I heard God say in my heart the word "dreams." So I sat on that word for awhile in God's presence and I felt Him complete the thought. "The year 2017 will be one full of your DREAMS-- your heart's desires." He pressed upon me that many had lost hope in 2016. Many hearts were broken, dreams were lost, and a sense of hopelessness had settled into many of His daughter's lives. So I bring to you great news from the Lord today! "The New Year, 2017, will be filled with God's EXTREME goodness and many of your DREAMS will be realized and many of  your heart's desires will be met," says the Lord our God and Father. God is resurrecting old dreams and for some of you He will be giving you new dreams to dream. 2017 will be a mighty year for you and it will be awesome!
"Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us..."  Ephesians 3:20, AMP
My challenge this week is: no matter where you are today, please receive this word. I have committed to believe in what the Lord shared to me. I have made a choice to speak this word over my life everyday. I will repeat this word over and over until it is deep within my soul and it is full of belief! I ask you today to join me in believing and speaking this word over your life for the upcoming year. I dare you to receive this word with an open heart, submitted heart, and believing heart right now and let us together witness the EXTREME goodness of God in 2017 and watch our DREAMS come to life too!
I pray you were able to celebrate the reason for the season-- Jesus Christ was born to save the world! I know the Holiday season can be a time of painful memories or emotional difficulties. Please know YOU are in my prayers. Also, please don't hesitate to contact me at any time. Also, I will be praying for all of the Livin' Lively Ladies this week as we wrap up Christmas 2016! I love each of you! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. that you may have. I would This email address is being protected from spambots.
