It’s astonishing to me, the word God has given me for 2015. You see, back in the fall of 2012 I was pregnant and God gave me the name Cadence Dawn with the promise of a “morning song.” As it happened, my morning song was just one of many things God would ask me to surrender in 2013 and, instead, that spring I gave birth to a son. As all things from God, my son has been a blessing, every bit the prince of peace that his name implies, I couldn’t be more grateful. It’s two years later now and I can feel the stir in my spirit of a faithful God redeeming His promise to me, the promise of a morning song. The word He has given me for 2015 is cadence and along with it the promise of not just a song for the morning, but a song for every hour, every day of my life.

I can tell already that this year holds more than just the promise of a song, it’s the promise of a step, a way of life. This year I expect to discover the rhythm of a life in step and in tune with God. I’m hoping that as I learn and practice my cadence that my family will also be pulled into step along with me. I pray we grow together, making music with our lives, joined together in one holy song unto The Lord.
2015 will be a year of homecoming, both in the literal and figurative sense. It’s a return to obedience, but without compulsion. As I discover my cadence obedience will be the natural overflow of my heart rather than the need to appear to be doing the right thing. 2015 will be the fulfillment of the hope promised in 2014. This year I can feel myself breaking free from the “good girl” within in order to fully live out the grace promised to me through Jesus- the year when I will finally be free to simply move in step with Him without fear or hesitation.
2015 will be the culmination of all that God has been leading me through… Grace. Trust. Surrender. Hope. Cadence.
