So what I’m doing basically this year is filling myself up so completely that I overflow with goodness.
I’m first of all emptying myself of all the toxicity and anger and second guessing and bitterness and dissatisfaction and sadness.
And I’m filling up with:
Ecclesiastes 9 v10:
‘Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might….’
Keeping busy keeps me sane. So whatever my hands find to do. Whatever my mind can conceive, I will bring to life with my hands. I have already volunteered for two projects this year, and it’s only the first month. And I am looking for more to take on. If you have any project and you need help on your team, reach me please. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
1st Corinthians 13:1
‘If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction]…’
I actually have so much love to give its stunning. I will no longer hold back from loving purely. Every human who comes in contact with me will experience a large chunk of it. E go be like party pack. You get some love, they get some love, everybody gets some love!
‘A happy heart is good medicine and a joyful mind causes healing,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones’
No more negatives. All that zero to hundred stuff my mind does has to be put in check this year.
This year, everything is bright and beautiful. Everything is awesome and going well. No matter the circumstances, I will only see goodness. In people, in situations, in life.
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.”
The last part of last year was an amazing revelation for me: The Holy Spirit is my friend. He literally came through for me EVERY TIME. Even on the most mundane, ridiculous issues. He came through as a friend, a teacher and a helper. I want me more of that this year.
‘But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children’
This is the year that I will spoil my family. With all of me and all of my resources. This is the year I will do way better with picking up calls and replying texts (even the annoying BC messages). This is the year I stop saying I’m broke and actually just spend on my folks.
Last year, I registered and prepared for and sat an examination in 3 weeks that other people did in 6 months. Aspa, Motunrayo, the queen of playing herself. When I see the results and I pass, I’m dressing up in a fancy dress and taking myself out to a fancy dinner in a fancy restaurant. If all goes well, I should write another one this year.
Happy 2017 everyone!! May you never have a better last year!!
