As my last blog for the year 2014, I am dedicating it to forgiveness. As the year is nearing its end, my prayer and goal for this specific blog is that it reaches the masses! I want each person who reads this to forgive. Forgiveness is the hardest, most toughest thing anyone can do. I know for myself, I have held on to a couple of things that has happened in my life at a young age but it's time to forgive and let it go. It has caused me to hate and at one point wish ill to the ones that hurt me and I had to ask for forgiveness. I know now it was out of my control and those negative feelings I have towards them has only held me back from forgiving them, being great amd receiving ALL that God has for me. I want you, reading this to first forgive yourself. Forgive yourself for thinking you caused all the bad in your life. Forgive yourself for thinking that you are worthless because of the mistakes you made. Forgive yourself for believing that where you are in life is due to any lack of grace or favor. That is in fact, the complete opposite. You are great! And if God has forgiven you even before you asked for it, you are worth it! Let the blessings flow into your life. Just forgive. It is thee last day in 2014, we will never get this day back. So make the best of it; send it off knowing that you have forgiven yourself and whomever else. Enjoy the beginning of a new year and better YOU!!!! You are loved!
Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!
- I FORGIVE YOU
Tuesday, December 16, 2014
This time more than anything many people (myself included) begin sulking in the have nots and nagging because we don't have this or we don't have that. Christmas lists and wish lists are being written by children and adults. Lists that consist of bikes, iPads, phones, TVs, cars, and everything else you and I would put on our lists that will give us momentary pleasure and joy. By no means am I knocking the ones who are able to give and receive those gifts (as my time will soon be here) but I have other items I must put on my list first. The last two Christmas' we didn't have a tree but we had breath in our bodies', a great meal to eat, a nice fire to lay by, a TV to watch, and each other. And of course it would have been lovely to give and receive gifts but we were thankful anyhow. But this year we still don't have a tree but we have lights which is just a good for me. I've been delaying to write this blog based on my own laziness but I'm glad I'm doing it now.
I am now aware that I have to be thankful for my vision. I have wasted so much energy worrying about the wrong things that God could have snatched my vision right from me but Thank God He didn't. I'm alive to fight another battle and to focus on my vision.
So this year my Christmas Wish list will read as follows:
#1. Motivation every breathing moment to remain focused on my vision
#2. Be obedient to God's words
#3. Bless others this Christmas with what I do have
#4. Fight this battle knowing I am already victorious
#5. Protection over my marriage, family, money, career, and friendships once I have been blessed
#6. Remain humble as I achieve and check my goals off
And last but not least...
#7. Acknowledge God for EVERY BLESSING AND BREAKTHROUGH that is getting ready to overwhelm my life for the rest of my life!!!!
