Wow January was taking forever to be in the history books! It was a month filled with so many uncertainties and instabilities and change too! It felt like the New Year just came in and very quickly it was already June – yeah, a lot happened in January. Mostly spiritual growth through life’s happenings at work, family and 21-day fasting and prayer. I can’t help but hum this song by Cyndi Lauper as it is how I felt “If you’re lost, you can look and you will find me. Time after time. If you fall, I will catch you, I’ll be waiting. Time after time” Through it all, I know there was someone looking out for me; He kept me focused, He kept me grounded, He kept me sane and joyful…that someone was Jesus!
In the month of February, the word is FOCUS – it is my prayer that we focus on things that matter in life – on fruits of the spirit Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). Irrespective of all the political chaos going on in the country, unstable jobs and the minor stresses of life, choose to keep your focus on things that awaken your spirit every day. This means reading God’s word and uplifting literature, listening to while worshiping and praising God through the days. This means searching your heart on a daily basis, forgiving and letting go of things that linger. To stay focused, you shouldn’t worry, you shouldn’t fear, you shouldn’t allow the enemy a foothold in your heart; instead embrace the days and nights with clarity and wisdom from God; with the strength that comes from God and an abundance of faith that all things will work out for your good.
Oh February it is indeed nice to meet you! Plans have been set but definitely allow God to order your steps (Proverbs 16:9). I am looking forward to it with confidence, strength and absolute surrender. I know that He is always there to catch me…time after time…I hope you feel the same way too and will remain FOCUSED.
Stay Blessed, Stay FREE
