2012 Is Ending...... : Keep The Faith!

imagesFirst, I must apologize for my absence. As you all might know, it is exam season and so I've been busy with school. As the year draws to an end, I've found myself refelecting on this year and how everything worked out (or not.) What made 2012 different from 2011? What did I gain and what did I lose? Have you been doing some reflecting also?

I'm sure there are people thinking "oh well, there goes another year and I'm still stuck in the same spot." "Is this how this year will end? And God will still not answer my prayers?" So many questions in our hearts, for the goals that were not accomplished and the dreams left unfulfilled. So what do you do? 2013 is fast approaching, where do you go from here?

DON'T GIVE UP. It is not yet over. Listen, in Jeremiah 29:11 God says

"I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for." (The Message)

Wow! If you don't take anything from this article, that take that word with you. God is still on the throne.

If God has not yet done it, it is not because you are yet to climb a mountain. Rather, he's putting things together for you. He wants you to have that "thing" and enjoy the best of it. That "thing" that you are hoping for will come, and it will not tarry. Regardless of what you hoped for but did not get in 2012, or what you dreamed of but could not achieve, do not stop. You still have life, it will happen.

In this year, I had a falling our with two (2) of my best friends, my dad lost millions in his business, my brother could not get admission, I lost a scholarship application, my mum was sick, another brother of mine could not get a job. BUT on the other hand, in this year; I had food, clothing, shelter, peace, joy, life in abundance, successs in school, provision for my family, my brother who had been married for so many years had his first baby and many more.....

You just need to search withing yourself and find things to be grateful for, no matter how little. If you are reading this that you have life! Life is something to be grateful for. Thank God for what you have. Be at peace with what you have until what you don't have comes into your hands.

Most importantly, 2012 is not yet over!! We've still got some days to go, so who says it will not happen still? Note that a thousand years to us is like a day in the sight of God and God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond all we can ask or imagine. So keep the faith and keep the fire burning.

AND SO I DECLARE "You have grace to finish well, this is a December to Remember. Things will work in your favor, light will shine on your path. Nations will come to your light, and Kings to the brightness of your rising. It is well with your family, business and school. You are lifted. The more you live the brighter you will shine. God will finish in your life what he has already begun. Great things are yours, in the might name of Jesus, AMEN!!
