reflecting back and counting your blessings, reaffirms God’s ability to come through for any situation.
At the beginning of a year, most of our focus is looking onto what God will do to get relief on our current situation. This is especially so if you had a rough year. My 2018 personally had been a tough one. My hopes for being married in 2018 had turned into more disappointment as my new found relationship was no more. With the excitement of the possibilities that a new year could bring: that 2019 holds, still there lies a fear of the unknown. There lies a fear if this new year would truly be better than the last one.
With the hope that this year will be the best year. It all starts with trusting God who changes times and seasons. Thus for an increase in faith, I embraced God’s admonishing to reflect back and count on my blessings as this reaffirms His ability to come through for my situation.
A new year is a fresh start and thus I came up with a guideline for 2019. My 2019, I’ve purposed to put God first in every area of my life and work towards the path that’s been revealed to me by God.
Psalms 119:1 You’re blessed when you stay on course, walking steadily on the road revealed by God
Do you have a vision board for this New Year? This was of utmost importance to me that before the clocking of a new year, I was able to spend time in the secret place to receive the vision for 2019 and run with it. I was encouraged as I received a word from God from Habakkuk. The promise of a kingdom partner still stands.
My other takeaways for the year are to Intentionally purpose to grow by developing oneself through reading books and the bible. spend time in prayer and worship. In addition, have a positive attitude and a positive outlook towards life as this yields positive results. Happy New Year!!
