Hello and Happy New Month!!
Welcome to your new beginning. To your season of breaking boundaries and leaping over walls of limitation. It is your time to shine!
I am so excited about this particular month because we finally turn one! Yaaaaaaay!! Happy blogversary. I appreciate all the love that I get from you guys. The response has been overwhelming. Incase you are new here, welcome to the family.
For sure, I wouldn’t be here if not for your consistent support. Thank you for always taking time to read and share my work. Also for the constructive criticism. I thank God for all of you.
This month is also special because it brings us to a place of reflection being that 2019 is just a few months shy. However, this time ( in comparison to my first post which you can read here ) I would like us to do it a bit differently.
Today, let’s focus on our progress.
As I reflect on how this blog came to existence, I remember being in a season of so much uncertainty. My vision was very clouded. I had been asking God for ideas to create my own but writing never crossed my mind. I took up the challenge from a few friends and one year later, I can proudly say I am happy I did. I am grateful for where am at and excited about where I am going.
Thinking about the diversity of the seasons of life, we mostly hear people talking about coming out of a season but rarely do we hear about learning to celebrate the achievements we made while in the season.
I know you may not have accomplished all you had desired to by this time. Others may have even gone way ahead of you but as long as you’re rightly aligned in God’s time, it doesn’t matter.
I again saw under the sun that the race is not to the swift and the battle is not to the strong, and neither is bread to the wise nor riches to those of intelligence and understanding nor favor to men of ability; but time and chance overtake them all.
Ecclesiastes 9.11 AMP
In the words of my Father in the Lord, it is just a matter of time!
Maybe you can’t seem to think of anything to celebrate. How about I help you?
Remember that one time this year you did all that was expected of you or when you managed to wake up early yet you’re not a morning person? How about that time you managed to smile in the midst of pain and turmoil? Think of how God has used you to put a smile on someone else’s face. Celebrate that.
Clap for yourself. And if you can’t relate with any of that. Then celebrate God for being there for you in and out of season.
Light is not always at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes it’s within the tunnel. Take time today, celebrate how far you’ve come by God’s grace. Be proud of yourself, no victory is too small.
Love, Light and Life,
