I want you to know that you have been such a blessing to me, even though it doesn’t look like it. But hey, it’s a job well done!
Almost the same time last year, I was a totally different person who looked forward to meeting you with so much excitement and anticipation of what was in store, I even remembered writing all my goals, theme and all that I wanted to accomplish.
But the journey was more of like walking in a desert where I saw no ending. Oftentimes, I’d ask myself “what do I do with my life?” Yet in this time of limbo, I Learned to seek God even more. My fears then slowly turned into faith and despite a lot of unanswered prayers, my heart rested in the assurance that having God is my ultimate blessing.
Oh 2016, you have taught me a lot of life lessons i would never forget.
I’ve even learned the art of surrender… my own will, my worldly desires, my selfish ambitions. And sometimes… the bravest decision someone can do is to surrender.
Coz in surrender to the ONE who has it all, there’s always One light of revelation at each step forward, one step at a time. It was tough, something that required so much patience and humility.
You have allowed me to find myself and be lukewarm, but not too long to settle there. Thank you Jesus for giving me 2016, for without it I wouldn’t know what redemption means. Now all I knew was that I survived the challenge of the year that was. Whew! who would have thought?
Bye 2016, I did not expect you to be this good.
Cheers to new beginnings. 2017, let your sunshine in.
