2011 is over.
Seems like just yesterday i was... well, doing whatever it was i was doing :).
I entered into the new year in church, 'Jesus house' was on fire... good fire that is. I needed the heat with all the cold outside.
2012 is here.
We made it into the new year. Yayyyy!!!!!
(i need you to slap yourself real quick if you dread this year and you're freaked out about it because of that 2012 movie you saw. If you've slapped yourself, here's a hug, everything will be fine. Trust me)
It was a somewhat shaky year we just came out of, on one side it was the death of youths, bombs going off and insecurity in the country, on the other side, it was friends getting married, babies being born and dreams coming true for some.
We may have gone through challenges that have left us breathless, we may have had a smooth sailing... whatever it was, the fact that we have life is all the reason we need to lay flat on the floor in thanksgiving.
Work out your salvation in these new year, draw closer to God and he'll draw near to you. Step up your game and leave all that needs to be left behind in the old. We can't keep dragging baggage and filth with us from year to year.
It's going to be a great year, I can feel it... All will be well, i know it... Because God is and has always been on the throne, year in and year out.
I love what this says...
"Just because it's a new yr doesn't guarantee you new things. New actions, new habits, new thinking, new obedience - those reap new blessings. Don't be fooled & think things are going to change for you if you stay the same just because it's a new year. That's not truth.
Stop smoking, breathe better. Eat right, loose weight. Work out, get stronger. Obey God, receive favor. We must change in order 2 see change." @masterwilliams
As you go through the year, hold on to this no matter what it is you face... "Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." Joshua 1:9(KJV).
In simple English "Strength! Courage! Don't be timid; don't get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take."(the message)
