Happy new year! It’s been a while I wrote to you, I trust that you are doing well.
How were the festive celebrations? Pleasant, I hope, except for the part of dealing with the extra pounds gained from the plenty food. 😊
It’s a few days into the new year, and I could not think of a better time to reconnect with you, my sisters. As the year 2021 ended, I was in a place where I did not want the year to ‘finish’. Why you may ask, well, it is because God blew my mind in 2021 – the year was heaven on earth for me – God’s favour was evident in all I did, and it felt so ‘sweet’. Everything that has a beginning must have an ending, so the year was bound to end regardless of my multiple testimonies. And that it had to end sort of began to make me feel unexpectant for 2022. Weird right? I wondered why too, mainly because the testimonies I experienced in 2020 I did not see coming or technically ask for them – it was just God honouring me.
So towards the end of 2021, I deliberately ensured I stayed grateful until I could shake that feeling off. Finally, to the glory of God, I was able to shake that feeling off and become expectant for the new year 2022.
One of the things the holy spirit brought to my remembrance was to ask whether he did better for me in 2021 than he did in 2020, which I affirmed. Then the holy spirit proceeded to ask whether, at the end of 2020, did I not say it was my best year so far. I answered in the affirmative; at the end of 2020, I had said it was my best year yet despite the challenges faced. After that, he asked why I would think that his best for me would be in my yesterday (last year). Oh! I see it now; I was so encouraged and comforted that no matter how much I thought God blew my mind in 2021, God was going to do more in 2022, His best is inexhaustible. This is our covenant as children of God; as prophet Ezekiel documented in Chapter 36 verse 11, “God will do us better than our former days”. Also, Proverbs chapter 4 verse 18 tells us that the path of the righteous is like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. Therefore, we know that the truth is established out of the mouth of two witnesses – I am confident that in 2022, God has more in store for us as his children, our experience of 2021 notwithstanding – There is more!
So, sisters, I welcome you to the year 2022, your season of more! Enjoy the best of God this year, in Jesus Name. Amen.
Loads of Love 💕
