Hello my friends! I hope this greeting finds you well! it is so great to re-connect with you all again after taking time out for a well-needed sabbatical 🙂 . As you may have realized, I had not been writing or very active on my social media outlets. This is because I purposely took time out to rest, rejuvenate, spend more time with my family and also to hear from the Lord on the next steps of my personal, academic and ministerial walk. I also utilized this time to attend to key academic endeavors which are also very important to my school life and ministry as a whole. I also used the time to retreat and also connect with friends who needed personalized outreach and support; i must say that this time of sabbatical has been rejuvenating on many levels, although I sincerely did miss being here and other social media outlets to connect and dialogue with you all 🙂
- My Prayer & Wisdom Capsules For You: I am glad to be back because I get to communicate with you again! I pray that as this calendar year comes to a wrap, that you will also find some little time to also do some personal and perhaps cooperate introspection, connect deeper with your family, guardians and loved ones, rejuvenate and re-strategize on the visions God has placed in your heart, and to also hear from Him on better navigating the situations you may be facing. God is definitely at work in you even as you lean in to Him. Whenever we are resting in the father and focused on him, we are better able to key into what heaven is saying in that season and therefore we are able to hear with clarity and run with endurance!
- This is the Word I have for you: I am well aware that the year 2015 is wrapping up and for many of us, it may be an anxious time. As some people voice the great offerings the year brought them, some might perhaps be lamenting the challenges and maybe grievances the year may have come with. Regardless of which “category” you may have designated your sentiments, I want to encourage you to not lose sight of this: Thanking God.
- Scripture Reference: The psalmist said ” Gracious is the Lord and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The Lord preserveth the simple: I was brought low and the Lord helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears and my feet from falling. I will walk before the Lord in the Land of the living” (Psalm 116:5-9)
- Final Message for You Today: If you feel weighed down at this time of the year, know that you can cast your cares to God and invite the holy spirit to help you in prayer. Remember the good things God has done for you from January till now and know that the end of a thing is better than the beginning; Also remember that all situations help you to better develop the fruit of the spirit ( i.e. love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, faith, self-control, humility. In all things, continue to give thanks as the year ends; for by showing gratitude,you position yourself to receive more from the Lord!
