At the beginning of this year, the word “fearless” was so strong in my heart. I entered the year not knowing all that was going to unravel. As I look back, I can see how God truly helped me walk through this year fearlessly as He gave me signs to help me know that He was with me all the way.
Things were lost. Things were birthed. Some of the birthings required painful processes but the sound of joy upon delivery overrode the tears that were shed. I learnt a lot! Oh a lot! To believe and trust God and also to believe in me. To hold dearly to what God has given me and to never doubt His hand and purpose concerning my life. Despite the darts that were thrown my way, given up was never an option. I knew I had come too far to give up. God’s grace and presence was so strong.
We were welcomed into the year with bad news. After that a worse news came. The sting of death took away my precious uncle. The pain was and is still a lot to bear. It was hard to see how good was going to come out from this year.
But viewing this year on a whole, I can say it’s been a good year. So many births. So many blessings. So many new beginnings. So many joys. As such I have chosen to count my blessings and not focus on the losses. After all, God is good still and His hand and presence has carried me through it all.
He helped me to stay fearless and to have full confidence in Him. At the end, a lesson was learnt that God never disappoints those who put their trust in Him.
This might be my last post for the year and I will like to seize the opportunity to thank every single one of you who have encouraged, taught and spoke godly wisdom into my life. Thank you for reading, commenting, sharing and following my blog. It is a privilege to serve the kingdom in this capacity.
If you feel that the year wasn’t great for you, remember that God carried you through and there is a reason why you are still alive. Celebrate His grace and mercies and continue to thank Him for what He is yet to do.
I hope you enjoy the celebration season with family and friends. Cheers to a new year! See you in 2020🥂
