Well it’s been a while but I’m back. Its a new year but the clock on my life doesn’t just start over with the new year. What I learned and went through in 2018 and before has prepared me to enter 2019. Each year of my life since 2015 has literally gotten better and better. Mind you I didn’t say perfect and peachy but God has a way of helping me see things through His lens and it looks promising.
Last month I was reflecting back on my life. I have every reason to dread the holiday season and for many many years I did. I lost my dearly loved grandfather several months before the holiday over 20 years ago but life NEVER seemed the same. I lost my loving Mother 10 years ago just days after Christmas..life definitely NEVER was the same. Three years ago, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had surgery two weeks before Christmas, WOW!! So when I look at those situations I could easily be depressed, feel hopeless and just wish the season would pass away while I slept. But God’s saving grace said otherwise…He wouldn’t let me succumb to these feelings of despair and emptiness.
Living a saved Christian life is teaching me where my source of joy and happiness reside. Although life threw and continues to throw swings at me, God is ALWAYS on my side telling me when to duck, dodge, get up or step aside. He is showing me HIs love for me will carry me through any situation all I have to do is: rejoice always, pray without ceasing and be thankful in every situation…MY GOD-Goals for 2019 and beyond (toy story, lolol). Sounds hard to do but I’m learning practice makes perfect (as perfect as I can get). I can truly say my good days out weigh my bad days and greater is ahead of me….not only in eternity but here on earth.
I choose to believe in God and His goals for me!! No time for looking back and stressing. My life experiences were stepping stones for my right now and next.
What God-goals are you setting for your life….not just 2019 but beyond?!
Be Blessed Always!!
