It’s almost the end of the first month of the year 2020 I know, but I still can say Happy New Year.
I know loads of people may roll their eyes at this… what’s so happy about the New Year? That would be a question thrown like fiery darts from a lot of hears right now.
It really hasn’t been happy for them. It isn’t this rosy burst of light ushering them into a new decade because in the first week of the year, they had to deal with disasters… from losing a loved one to death and… life, disappointments of different proportions, rumors of war (thank God it isn’t as loud as it was), raging fires causing commotions across the nations, been stuck on a hospital bed…

But guess what? This isn’t a sign that it’s not a good year. The hurt, the pain, the tragedy, the brokenness… all of it, but in the midst of this, there’s still life… and where breath is, hope lives.

Don’t let your environment, the things you see, the things that happen to you become more real than the things you can’t see, those are the intangibles… the intangibles are the real deal. What are they? Faith, Love, and Hope.
Let them stay alive in you.
Let them breathe even when you feel like situations are choking the strength out of you, as long as they breathe, they remain alive in you, and then you’ll survive the storms, and the fires, and the betrayals.

God loves you, that is the intangible that supersedes all things. The love of this our God. This one who is good, this one who’s got you.

Even when it hurts, don’t let go. Even if it hurts right now… don’t let go. Especially when it hurts… let your conviction be stronger than the pain, God really does love you and He’s got you. 

Been struggling with my second book, I've picked up my laptop this year to write and spent my time googling rubbish and watching sitcoms. I'm a year late with it... but I'm not discouraged, i judge God faithful still as I overcome laziness and whatever is slowing me down. While you wait for the next, why not buy my first? It's available on amazon... click here to purchase.

He’ll keep you in His perfect peace as your mind is stayed on Him. So let your mind be stayed on Him in this New Year, this decade. In good times, in bad times, in just there times… be stayed on him. How? Think about who He is, what He’s done for you on the cross… how He loves you, the forgiveness of sin… play songs that remind you of the goodness of God and His love… it refreshes your soul.

“You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character],
Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation].”
Isaiah 26:3(AMP)

Happy New Year.
