It's incredible how fast time is moving! We are at the end of 2021 and still in the throws of a pandemic. Everyone wants to know when it will all end. Nobody knows!
It's time to take personal assessment of where you're at as far as your spiritual life is concerned. In 2020 there was tons of fear to go around, tons of deaths and depression and sadness was everywhere. Were you at peace despite the circumstances? Were you greatly impacted during Covid-19? Did you loose love ones or people you knew?
If you are reading this, you were kept by God through it all; kept because your life purpose has not been completed yet. Honestly, we all should be closer to God by now, much closer than we were before the pandemic started. Our prayer lives should have grown along with our understanding of God. We should be more appreciative of life and what we have as well as worshipping and praising God continually because He is ultimately in control of it all.
As we come to the close of this year, that flew by, we face the unknown. Where do you see yourself this time next year if the Lord be not come? If your life is spared over the course of another 12 months, where will you be spiritually? What phase would your ministry work be in? How many people would you have impacted for Christ?
God desires that we progress continually. Yes, there will be trials, new challenges, and new triumphs and continued blessings. As long as we are alive we will keep experiencing much of the same, but we want to do better than we did in 2021.
Take an assessment, take inventory of your life and see what it shows you. Ask yourself the important questions. Go to God and ask Him to help you to achieve the things you need to accomplish and ask Him to help you to improve your prayer life. Prayer is key!
As you awaken each day, realize that you are here for God's purposes more than the fulfillment of your dreams and aspirations. If you fill God's will for you, He most certainly will help to bring about the things you desire to accomplish.
Keep Trusting, Keep Believing, Keep Enduring, Keep Praying and most of all remain Obedient to God!
