|| TRUST ||
It's almost the end of 2016, and as I reflect on life, the year and my journey, I realised that "trust" is what I lacked in the past year, and it's what I need more in the new year.
You see, I've always known that I needed to trust God for the unknown, the future the new adventures and relationships yet I feel that I can never trust enough. We have numerous worship songs on "trust", "walking on water" and "bravery", yet every time i sing it, it gives me just that momentary "5-seconds-of-courage" but after the song has ended and I go back to my daily routine, reality hits like a hard brick wall, and fears, doubts and insecurities mercilessly crawls back.
But two days back it was different. As a mentor of mine shared on prophetic words spoken for 2017, God was speaking. Deep in my heart and mind, I felt Him say, "You have always tried trusting me, but please know that I trust you too." And then it started to sink in. My gifts, talents, future and relationships are entrusted to me by God, for God. The very fact that God chose me to give these talents shows that God knows what He's doing and that He's got my back. Come what may, my circumstances, response and shortcomings does not fret God at all, not one bit. He chose me, and I Him, and that's the greatest partnership the world could ever behold.
So in the next year, I will trust and keep
trusting until I see His promises and prophetic words over me come into fruition. It can't be just trust and no action though. I'll do my part and trust that God will do His, because He's a God of His word and He never lies. So whether it's:
Starting a band
Writing new songs
Opening a business
Establishing partnerships
Pursuing studies (at whatever age)
Forging new friendships
Taking up a new hobby
Investing in new assets
Changing jobs
Falling in love (romantically)
Trying to get pregnant
Buying property
Getting A's on a test
Learning a new instrument
And the list goes on...
Believe that you've always had the faith to "walk on water", but now "trust" God that you won't sink. For if He has planted those desires, dreams, wishes, people and interests in your heart, He totally believes in you too. Trust that His plan for you will be the best "journey" you've ever travelled. For He works all things together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. So 2017, we're ready for you!!!!!
