Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.

For years I have asked and received a word from God for the coming year. In the past, my word has been a scripture or even a single word denoting what’s to come—a road map of sorts.
