“But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings as eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint”– Isaiah 40: 31.
I almost didn’t write this post. Thanks to Glo that has refused to work in Makurdi since this week. I think the devil is at work here. Anyway, as evidenced in my mid-year review, I had an amazing 2016. The best I’ve had in 6 years. This year, I’m looking to build on that in the following ways.
By April, I’ll be rounding up my NYSC. I really do not want to stay at home after that. I’m starting the process of sending application letters soon. Wish me luck, guys. Most importantly, pray with me.
I got into a relationship last year and somehow, it didn’t work out. I want to try again this year. I hope this time, it’s forever. Someone tweeted about 2017 being the year of her forever love and I say amen to that. It would definitely be nice to have someone to share life’s special moments with.
Last year was proof to me that friends are sent by God to bring us comfort when we need it. I was privileged to have experienced Prov 18:24 in the flesh (yes, including you, Tokunbo). The plan is to be that same friend for them this year.
My relationship with my family isn’t how I would like it to be and to be honest, I have made peace with the fact that it may not be that way anymore. However, the plan for this year is to be in a position where everyone looks to me for guidance knowing that I will be able to live up to that role.
I want to be better. A better friend, daughter, lover, employee and worshipper. I am going to do everything I can to improve myself in all areas because that’s the only way I can be better. So help me God.
I want to live a life of faith. Total dependence on God knowing that in him I live and move and have my being. No more will I confess negatively even in jest. My words have power. They never fall to the ground. Might as well speak only life to my spirit.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go”– Joshua 1:9
*raises glass* Here’s to a beautiful 2017. May all our plans and dreams come true.
