In a few hours from now, we will be welcoming a new year full of new opportunities and with opportunities also come new challenges.
But since we still have a few hours before the close of the year, it pays to reminisce and thank the Lord how much He enables us to face this moment of our lives breathing and thriving no matter what the odds.
Is it not amazing to take a deep breath and just inhale the goodness of the Lord that even when some things may not go as plan He reminds us that He is Sovereign and is in control.
And that while every second differs what remains constant is God’s presence. He taught us that aside from the peace that comes from Him everything is in chaos. But as we pray and seek him, we thrive even in the chaos of our minds and circumstances because His presence goes with us. And it is His presence in our lives that allows us to bear fruit, fruits that last. This fruit of the spirit empowers us to thrive in whatever circumstances and rise above our challenges just like how an eagle soar above the sky.
I hope and pray that the fruit of the Spirit continue to thrive in our heart as we face another year. But before the spirit can bear fruit, we need to abide in Him, for apart from Him we are nothing.
So as we prepare the different fruits we set on our table, I hope we will never forget to prepare our hearts so we can bear the fruit of the spirit all year round. ❤
A blessed new year to each one of us😊
