“Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass”
– Joshua 21: 15 NKJV
“You know with all your heart and soul that not one of the promises the Lord your God gave you has failed. Every promise has been fulfilled; not one has failed.”
– Joshua 23:14 NIV
This is definitely my year. This must be my year. In this year, God will fulfill all his promises to me. Here are my expectations for 2017:
My year of wig and gown 💃🏽💃🏽: This year, not only shall I become a lawyer, I must slay my bar finals. I’ve finally got a word from God regarding my bar finals.
“Then Deborah said to Barak, “Up! For this is the day in which the Law has delivered Sisera into your hand. Has not the Lord gone out before you? ” So Barak went down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men following him. And the Lord routed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army with the edge of the sword before Barak; and Sisera alighted from his chariot and fled away on foot.”
– Judges 4:14-15
This is the same way that the Lord shall deliver my bar exams into my hand. He shall go before me and he shall route my bar exams in my favour. In Jesus Name. Amen. This year, I shall finish from law school with a first class and I know it’s definitely not going to be by my effort. The grace of God is more than sufficient for me.
My year of Green Card: I’ve been on this American citizenship matter since 2004 and it finally came through last year and by God’s Grace, my green card would arrive this year. What a year to finally get a green card. When Donald Trump is the president of the United States of America. Won’t he chase me back to Nigeria? Anyways God is in total control and I trust his plans for me so I’m not bothered one bit. I’m excited to be able to leave Nigeria for a while.
Discipline: This year, I want to learn to be disciplined. I want to learn to push myself to do the right things even when I totally don’t feel like. I want to learn to be financially disciplined, physically disciplined and spiritually disciplined. I need to learn to take control of my flesh and not the other way round.
Growth: It goes without saying that I hope to grow this year. I hope to grow closer to my creator. I hope to grow wiser. I also hope to grow in character. I’ve taken up certain leadership positions and I pray they help me in my quest for growth and self development. Amen.
Bae: It won’t be a bad idea to meet bae this year; or would it? LOL lately, I’ve been doubting the existence of genuine love (except for the love of God though). I’ve heard so much stories and I’ve actually experienced some stuff that truly make me question love.
2017 please be good to me😏😏
