2015 has been a most awesome year so far for me. Well… You may want to think,
“That’s what is always said at the beginning of the year”
Well it may seem like the cliche, but if the ‘foundations’ on which you have an awesome year is right at the beginning, then the rest would walk in line also.
Jesus Christ did say in one of the Books written by St. Luke that
- “…He who is faithful in a very little [thing] is faithful also in much, and he who is dishonest and unjust in a very little [thing] is dishonest and unjust also in much….”
That is definitely True.
How does being faithful with little relate to having a most awesome year? well… It does! Simply, If I’ve had a most awesome year so far, then definitely, I stand a greater chance of having better days ahead.
Now you’re wondering. Could this be true?
Yes! It is.
I’ve had a most awesome year so far not because everything has been going like a smooth ride on a fast lane without traffic. So many things have seemingly gone wrong just in the first few days of the year, some plans have been skipped, some disciplines broken, some goals not met also.
You see, having a most awesome time is not necessarily about having a smooth ride on The fast lane but having a bumpy ride and enjoying the fun.
That’s the idea!!!
What has been the secret?
Its very simple. I’ve been Thankful! Really Thankful.
I’ve been living a life of Giving Thanks.
It has changed my perspective this year. It has given me a new light to see.
You know, the light with which you use to see things almost wholly determines what you see and how you see.
How has it helped me have a great year so far?
I’ve well understood that though I may have plans, purposes and even may carry out heart desires and plans, but I have my Lord God who is sovereign and supreme over them all.
Hear what King solomon, a man who was full of wisdom said;
- “The lot is cast into the lap, but the decision is wholly of the Lord [even the events that seem accidental are really ordered by Him].”
This is so true!
Knowing this, I then have a great Day and time all along.
it makes you see life differently from a vantage point.
Some times as young adults, we don’t get the girl or guy we wanted to get to date, we don’t get that dream job, we don’t get to fulfill some of our dreams, plans and goals but, We should learn to Think.. “What if we got it and some more wrong stuff happened?”
Some times in our lives also, we get to experience some storms, these storms have driven some of our loved ones away – loved ones we thought we could spend the rest of our lives with together as married couples.
Have your realized that most times, those storms reveal to you who really cares? It reveals to you who can stand with you forever.
Be Thankful for that Storm in your life today.
In leading us unto this new lifestyle, may I say THANK YOU for reading my posts.
I’m Thankful indeed.
