It started off with a pandemic and a lot of lives were lost. Things became worse as each day passes and for someone who is a firm believer of Christ, faith and trust that each day will be better, I always wake up with a new kind of energy not knowing what tomorrow holds.
2020, has been rancid, distasteful and loathsome to us as a country- the world has experienced horrid moments. With many dying, places gutted with fire, flood inundated some places, Jobs coming to a standstill, schools closing down and a lot is still happening as at now.
Don’t even ask how it went for me because I also had my share of the year in different ways. Some days were good, bad, and exciting. Well, I guess that is how life is- should be. It toughens us to strive for more and to become better than before. There were times I didn’t feel like stepping out. I was just scared of the next thing that will happen. I didn’t want to take a chance or a risk of doing something. What was there to live for? I mostly asked myself.
1. From being accused falsely by a senior colleague at work and coming out of it
2. From insinuations made and being vilified
3. From sacrificing sleep to impacting skills and knowledge
4. From losing some friends and family and escaping a road accident.
5. From having an amazing adventure and putting my life in a state of jeopardy
6. To making people happy and making an impact in my own little way.
7. To achieving excellence.
8. Gaining insight and more.
My utmost prayer is that the new year will be better for all of us. It will come with graceful memories and life changing experiences. Just like my Daily Devotional guide teaches today:
“The Lord shall guide thee” Not an angel, but Jehovah shall guide thee. He said he would not go through the wilderness before his people, an angel should go before them to lead them in the way; but Moses said, “If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence” Christian, God has not left you in your earthly pilgrimage to an angel’s guidance: he himself leads the van. You may not see the cloudy, fiery pillar, but Jehovah will never forsake you. Notice the word shall—“The Lord shall guide thee” How certain this makes it! How sure it is that God will not forsake us! His precious “shalls” and “wills” are better than men’s oaths “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” Then observe the adverb continually. We are not merely to be guided sometimes, but we are to have a perpetual monitor.
Believer in Christ, let’s us have faith and trust 2021 will bring Joy and gladness to our hearts. May we find:
jobs and gratification in whatever capacity we are.
content in whatever we receive and strive to achieve more.
grace and blessings in all spheres of our lives.
our spouses and may God lead us to them in his own time.
grow and experience newness in all we set out to do.
study and show ourselves as workmen who need not to be ashamed of the Gospel of Christ.
May 2021 be gleeful! Amen! 👯❤️ Start the year with GLADSOME!!!
