Happy New Year People. Welcome to 2015
I’m sure we all had a great 2014 even with all the challenges, successes, trials and everything that came up against us but God sustained us to witness a new year.
For me, 2014 was an awesome year not because I had it all rosy but because in spite of all that happened I came out of it a better person and achieved some of the goals I set for the year. It was simply a year of learning and unlearning so I can boldly say I came out of 2014 better than I went into it.
Even though we are not where we want to be, we are not where we used to be.
In 2015, most of us have written down resolutions, goals and things we want to do this year. It’s important to do this as this will be a measure of how the year went at the end of it. I have written things i want to do and how I want to achieve them and when I want them to happen.
If it’s not written, it doesn't exist
The sad thing is they can all remain on paper if no conscious effort is taken concerning whatever we have written. Also knowing that it cannot all be done with our human strength is important. We need God to order our steps according to His will concerning us. That also wouldn't happen unless we sincerely as Him to and are willing to follow His lead even when its contrary to what we have in our own plans because we know His plans are always good for us and it’s much better that what we have in mind.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the , “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future - Jeremiah 29:11 [NIV].
It might not be a smooth or easy ride as there will be oppositions, barriers and obstacles to these goals. Just like an aircraft's fligt, there might be a rough takeoff or landing and we might experience some turbulence in the course of the flight it’s just a matter of time, we will reach our destination. Remember nothing good comes easy and sometimes, we need to get out of our comfort zones, step out of the boundaries we have set for ourselves, jump out of the box that we or the society has placed us in. These actions will not always be convenient and often comes with some pain or discomfort. We might even need to put in some FIGHT.
A fight against whatever seems to be holding us back, our mindset, the status quo and the society we find ourselves.
For everyone I have spoken with about 2015, I have always told them, it’s going to be a great year, Its going to be better than 2014.
So go ahead and do what God wants you to. Go all out and achieve those goals. Take positive steps in the direction of your goals.
I wish everyone a fruitful 2015. Have a GREAT YEAR.
