I have to say that it feels strange to have to scroll longer before I get to my birth year. That’s when I get the cruel reminder that I am getting 1 year older. It seems, regardless of what age you reach, the uncertainties in life will never cease to end. So here I am writing a reminder to myself and to anyone else who is reading.
Some single folks will wonder when they will get married. Some married folks may be having problems in their marriage. Some folks who are getting older wonder if their kids who are working abroad will return to look after them, and if not, what will happen to them when their health take a turn for the worse. There is endless uncertainties,…what ifs….
So, remember Who your Anchor is.
Make a conscious decision to trust in Jesus, our Saviour and LORD. Nobody can decide that for you. It is between you and Him.
19 This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.
It feels like only yesterday that I tore the last page of the calendar for the month of September but here we are already to step into December. The moment you reach September, time seems to move a lot faster. It’s as if the earth moves faster just to reach the next cycle.
It’s normal to feel uncertain as the year draws to an end. I won’t even get to the resolutions because I doubt that many can even meet half of their new year resolutions. So, don’t write up new year resolutions. Be guided by God in a daily basis.
If you know that you know that God has put a dream in your heart to pursue, baby steps is the key. My pastor once said that if God is the one who ordered it, He will pay for it. So, do not doubt His provision for your life. Just trust in His timing. Yes, you read it right. Things may not happen the way we want it and timing might be off (according to our plans) but God’s timing is best. Trust Him as you step into the near year and dream with Him.
6 “Be strong and courageous, for you are the one who will lead these people to possess all the land I swore to their ancestors I would give them. 7 Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do. 8 Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do. 9 This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
