2018 is gradually coming to an end and I must say that I have had the time of my life this year. I have learnt so much about myself this year and I am so grateful to God.
Around this same time last year, I started writing down the goals I wanted to achieve this year. I honestly did not have any strategy in mind. I just knew what I wanted to achieve this year. December is one of my favorite months of the year apart from September. I love all the festivities and celebrations that come with the end of the year and its also a very wonderful time to sit back , reflect and take stock of the year that was and plan for the year to come.
On the 31st of December, during our family prayer time, The LORD asked us to write down how we were going to walk with Him in 2018. He said that He was going to lead, guide and direct us as we follow our personal plan for walking with Him in the new year.
Here’s my #WalkWithGod2018Objectives
- Pray every morning
- Read my bible at least every day
- Spend time in worship every Saturday from 6am to 7am.
I never got round to doing the last bullet point, but I was pretty consistent with the first two and with all humility and sincerity of heart, The LORD really led and directed my path.
The level of progress and growth I made in the different areas of my life this year has left me speechless. I have gone through my journal and I still cannot believe the things that I was able to do this year. Proverbs 16 vs 3 was the catalyst for the success I experienced in my finances, the growth that I made emotionally, the capacity that I developed mentally, the initiative that I took professionally etc.
Like I mentioned before, I did not have strategy for actualizing the goals that I had written down, but as I followed through with my #WalkWithGod2018Objectives , things just began to fall into place – from the podcasts that I listened to, to the different books I read, to the different conversations that I had and the different doors that opened up for me, everything worked together for my good 🙂 🙂 🙂
While I am celebrating my victories, I also had my fair share of loss and pain especially in the area of relationships and friendships. I mourned the loss of friendships and relationships that had to end, painful but necessary.
I have started writing down my goals for 2019. These goals are HUGE!!!!! I know that I cannot fulfill them in my capacity as Adaeze 😀 😀 😀 , so I intend to employ the same method that I used this year and cant wait to share the growth and progress that I will make.
I also want someone to be encouraged with my story, because if I were to quantify effort, I know that my efforts were not commensurate with the progress and growth that I experienced this year. I owe everything to The LORD who in His infinite mercy and goodness, chose to lead and direct my path. The blessings that have come into my life by this singular experience will forever shape the total outcome of my life and I am so grateful to The LORD, like so freakingly grateful. Words cannot even begin to describe ❤ ❤ ❤
God loves you and He wants you to succeed in life with all of His heart. Do yourself a favor and believe this line with every fibre of your being. Let this line be as tangible as the ground that you walk on, as real as the air you breathe and as sure as night follows day.
Forever in His Service,
