Ibukun is one of those folk who’ve come to the #30DaysOfHope from outside my circles. It’s humbling when people like this show interest in the project. Thank you, Ibukun…
I’m glad it’s 2014 really. I’m hopeful, expectant. I don’t know what exactly is coming though but I have a feeling whatever is happening is going to happen big and will of course be good things because all things work together for good for those who love God. I’m thankful for 2013 and God’s goodness because to be honest it’s the awesomeness of 2013 that has me excited about this year!
I was about setting my goals for the year and I found where I wrote the ones for last year. The truth is I had lost the book and hadn’t looked at my goals probably since I last write them but I found that I actually achieved them and even much more. The ones I hadn’t achieved were in progress so that was an encouragement for me.
This year is a year of personal development for me. It’s my final year in the university and then “Life” begins. I’ll write exams, go for NYSC, acquire new sills, meet new people do all sorts but there’s one thing that’s recurrent in all the things I plan to do and that is to be a better ‘Christ’.
This year I want people to look at me and see Christ. It means I’ll have to be nicer to people, more patient. I’ll have to succeed in everything I lay my hands to do but in all, I want to be a better person and who better to model oneself after than Christ.
I guess then this year “What Will Jesus Do” will be my mantra. In all that I do and hope to achieve, that will be my question and the answers will be my guide and of course the Spirit.
So, this year I’m going to shine as bright as I can in every way that I can. I’ll live an exemplary life and pass my torch around so that through me others can have some light in their lives. This year, I’ll be a better Christ.
