It’s only but a few moments until we enter the new year. Though this year has been tough , in some aspects it has been good. I lost some only to find or rediscover some others. Where I thought I had lost I shifted perception to find that i had in some way or other gained.
We are hard pressed on every side , but not crushed;perplexed but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down but not destroyed
For some others, the year has been unbearable, suffocating and difficult. But mind you, like all things you only fully appreciate the intensity of the stress when you reach the other side or when you find a place to recapture your breathe in between the struggles . This means the worst is over or you are keeping your head above the water, this is good.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day
As we journey on through 2016, we will intensify our efforts and fortify our resolve to achieve and conquer where we failed to in 2015 or where we set out to conquer in the year.
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen but on what is unseen. 2Corin 4
We shall go about our ways diligently seeing the end result of our toils in our mind’s eyes.Keeping our eyes on the prize accepting that sometimes we are the only ones that can see the prize. Going forth in faith and in deliberate and confident strides knowing that even when we seem not to be getting anywhere the only way to go is forward. And if you are rock bottom,the only way to go is up. In 2016 remember that to wholly love others one has to fully love oneself. Work hard. Laugh harder. Be kind to yourself and live don’t just exist!
