2018 is headed out and Here We Go into 2019! Are you Ready?
For most, this is a time of year people make resolutions based on the past years experiences and sometimes on things they have thought of but, haven’t taken any action. Or have you? A thought is the seed of action forming within. Now the question is: What are your thoughts? What is your minds focus? Do you realize that is what is being cultivated and will come to pass in 2019. Praise God, you can shift gears and re-route the heart and mind. Cause “as a man/woman thinketh in their heart, so are they”
What are your thoughts & plans to bring in the New Year? And for the New Year? Are they uplifting and edifying for you and those you interact with? Are you stepping into the New Year in moderation and Love for God, yourself, and your neighbor ?(neighbor: everyone outside of God and you.) Each year God reveals a Word to me, 2018’s was Obedience. Boy did He show me a lot about what that really means. There were some bumps in the road, since some things I didn’t want to hear, but as always they were things I needed to hear. And I really get it now since He revealed my Words for 2019: Trust & Believe. Even showing me a few peek previews of where we are going with those! But, that’s another post for another time. smile
Or are you cultivating a night of drinking, getting high, and ending up doing who know what. In truth we all know what will be produced out of that? We also know 95% of the time it ain’t nothin’ good, not for you or anyone else. That said, ” Is that really how you want to kick off 2019?” And don’t start thinking up excuses of how it’s an ok way to kick off the year just this one night. Cause you know in your heart, it’s Not. You can dance, be joyful, enjoy family and friends, and lots more without enhancements that have negative end results. Are you repeating the same ole’ habit just cause others are? (where’d that get you in 2018?) You know the saying, repeating the same thing over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity. If this is your plan, consider Proverbs 4:23 says, ” Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Well, I think I have made my point to end this year and bring in the New one. smile As for me, I am going to enjoy Fireworks and Give Thanks for all my Blessings of 2018. I will be giving Praise where it is due, to the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit for protecting and bringing me thru another year. I will also be praying for all of you and that for 2019 you will remember, ” Life is All About Choices and those Choices are Yours! May you all choose to plant good seed and may those seeds bring you a harvest of Abundant Blessings all throughout your 2019!
Shalom! & Hugs from Rev. Jones. Smile
