Cheers to every soul who try to survive this year. You are not alone. Behind the scenes we are all struggling souls trying to find ourselves again through the joys and sorrows and between self-doubt and courage.
Breathe dear soul whether you meet your goals or not. Cheers you survived. That means we have the chance to get better again, to find ourselves again in the Lord. And to thrive in His love.
I have so much stories to tell, not of trophies and victories but the victory to choose to breathe and live, stories not of how strong I am but of how weak I am who needs His grace and mercy.
I have nothing to boast except to boast about the love of the Lord who seeks the lost to be loved and cared for and to be renewed again and live a life of purpose pursuing His calling so we can please Him in every way.
While everybody is leaving everything behind this year, I say, “see you next year and let’s continue the good fight of faith.” I realized that nothing is certain, that while we pray that the Lord spare us from the trials of life, we ought to pray, “Lord give us the grace to bear life’s burden with humility and courage, anchoring on your presence as the source of Peace. You are Peace, nothing else.”
And as we continue to pray for better days to come, let us be reminded with this so we will have the courage and purpose to carry on…
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
– James 1:2-4 –
Thank you everyone for being with me this year as we try to survive and encourage one another.
Happy New Year!
Hoping for the Best,
