Wow, what a year it has been! The birth of our Christ always leads me into reflection. It’s been a great year, today and right here, at the end of it we get to celebrate the greatest gift of all… Jesus. Why wait until December 31st to reflect?
I share this photo because on February 26,2017 I made the best choice ever. I made it here, to this chapter – because of Him.
Jeremiah 29:11 says: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
He planned my life. He planned my PURPOSE. He is what I live for. This is a celebration of HIS work. I can’t wait to see what else He has in store for me.
Desperation is the womb of change. Sometimes we have to hit rock bottom and be at our lowest to appreciate the highs and blessings. In the midst of it all it’s important to remember that struggle is always pregnant with GLORY.
I surely experienced His glory this year. 2017 wasn’t an easy one, I lost family, friends, jobs, things, situations – but the struggles, test and trials, pruning proved to be more than worthy. God is so faithful with His promises. The reality is that true joy only comes from Him.
2 Corinthians 4:17
“For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever!”
“Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later.”
2018 will be my year of Spiritual Maturity, Faith and Growth. What are you speaking over your life for the new year? Declare it today and CLAIM IT!
Thank you for another year! Thank you for the successes in the past year and the failures that showed me my weakness and drew me closer to you. I love you so much Jesus. Thanks for never giving up on me.
lots of love,
