We do pray everyday For God’s blessings; Many of these prayers Are granted; But what do we do? We move on, Zero gratitude to God; Hence, is he to work, And we to enjoy Without appreciation? It should not be so; We have to learn To give thanks to God And anyone who is kind To us in any way. Give thanks many times.
With the changing of the calendar there are disagreements about if it is really a new decade.
What a silly disagreement.
Humans feel they control time. They can catagozie and contain it. However, as diverse as Humanity is, there are as many ways to contain time as there are civilazations.
I Celebrate three New Year’s. My actually new year is aligned with my pagan beliefs with the start of the year on Samhein, Halloween.
Then I recognize the Gregorian New Year, which most of the world, particularly the Western World, follow. Then, finally, I celebrate Chinese New Year. This is out of appreciation for Asian culture.
I once owned a Tibetan Buddhist Calendar. It being based on the moon as opposed to the sun. It was definitely different.
My friend in South Korea has two ages. One which is “western,” one which is based on her culture.
Not only are there calendar and time controls within different cultures, there are different views of time in various religions.
Growing up in the United Methodist Church we followed the Christian calendar (hint we are still in the Christmas Season until Epiphany). There are specific traditions and practices associated with certain times of the year in every religious practice.
And don’t even get me started on the different political calendars across the globe.
Sometimes this societal agree on the meaning of time is to our detriment. More and more people are having sleep problems and health issues because they are no longer in tune with their own physical, internal clock, their circadian rhythm.
It is worth remembering for all of the different views and beliefs on time, it is all fabricated by our brains. It is simply a way for our brains to catagozie and barely begin to understand our place in the Universe.
This Gregorian Year of 2020 I suggest we all take a step back and allow the Universe to speak to us, to reset our clocks to its time, instead of the chaos of societal time.
Last night I told my mom. when she said she was grateful 2019 was almost over, there were good things which happened in 2019.
Be grateful for the good things in 2019 and leave behind the rest.
I say again: BE GRATEFUL FOR THE GOOD THINGS IN 2019 AND LEAVE THE REST BEHIND.
Going further, be grateful for the lessons learned from the bad things that happened in 2019.
Overall, move in 2020 with a grateful heart. Forgive the events, people, and perhaps most importantly, yourself. Gratitude for the what was and gratitude for what will be. This is the best way to progress into the next decade.
I end with my favorite Scripture. Philippians 4:4-9:
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.
Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me–put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
This is my prophetic word video for December 2019 from YouTube channel Carly’s Niche. I really sense God wants us to use our assertiveness this month and let go of unbelief. This could apply to any month but I sense especially for December. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
I am so blessed to work as an Administrative Assistant for a local church. They aren’t just a church. They hold a yearly literacy program for Primary students! They also have summer Vacation Bible school and a pre-school throughout the school year.
Coming from the corporate world, I am awestruck by the positive atmosphere that these young children help create.
I don’t feel my new job is a pain, I embrace it’s refreshing atmosphere with open arms.
I am simply amazed at the difference. I hope that more people can/could experience positivity in their jobs.
Here’s to more individuals having the freedom to be happy at their “day” jobs.
I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his love; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his goodness to me, I will, forever, thank the Lord For his good ness To the whole world; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his mercy,; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For the gift of my life; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his protection; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For always being there for me; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For providing for me. I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his grace; I will, forever, thank the Lord, For his countless blessings.
