Over the last couple of days I have had time to reflect and analyse the year that was. 2013 was a beautiful year. It had many good days and a few really difficult ones. All in all, it was a great year, one I doubt that I’ll ever forget. It stretched me, taught me many life lessons and rooted me deeper in Christ.
My main take out from 2013 is: THE LORD IS FAITHFUL.
Psalms 36:5 (ESV)
Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
When the year begun, I did not know the direction it was going to take, but I ‘blindly’ followed God; I walked by faith and not by sight. In retrospect, that was the best decision I ever made. He LITERALLY became my only option. I learned to fully rely on Him and trust Him. It has been a beautiful journey. My perspective on life has changed, the Lord has enabled me to see things from His lenses. Amenipa macho nione sawa sawa.
This is my testimony:-
I been given a land for which I did not labor and cities you I not build, and I dwell in them; I eat from vineyards and olive yards I did not plant. (Joshua 24:13 Amplified, emphasis mine)
Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Psalms 16:2, 5-6 (NIV)
I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord;
I have no good besides You.”
The Lord is the portion of my inheritance and my cup;
You support my lot.
The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places;
Indeed, my heritage is beautiful to me.
I may not know what tomorrow holds but I know my God is faithful. Nothing is impossible for Him, He holds my world in his hands. There is no one like God in all the earth.
Blessings to you and yours.
May you taste and see that the Lord is good in 2014 and may He enlarge your territory.
