I say “Big thank you” To those who Have made life Better for me today; I say a big thank you To those in the US; To those in India; To those in the United Kingdom; Ghana; Bangladesh; Singapore; Pakistan; Philippiness; Canada; Belgium. Cameroon; Mighty Nigeria; And others; Thank you lovely ones.
Lord God, You are the reason I am confident That success Is on my side; Without you, I am nothing; With you, I can be anything; Thank you for this, For this precious gift Of another day To me And all of us Who are here today; We trust you And count on you For everything; Thank you For always being there For us, Amen!
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.
Two miles away From destination When our journey ends And automatically, We begin a new journey, I thank you, O Lord, From the bottom Of my heart, For bringing me this far; Many who set off with me, Have fallen on the way; Many who entered after me, Have fallen on the way, But by your decree, And grace, I am still on, And about to finish The last lap of the race, Ready to cross the river, To explore a new territory. I thank you so much, Lord; May you stay with me, And grant me more journey’s Mercies As I finish this short distance that is left; Thank you for hearing My prayer. Amen!
I give you thanks Mighty God, For the past day And all the blessings That came with it; I give you thanks For this day Which you have generously Offered to me; And all the blessings To come; I give you thanks For your abundant graces Received and to come; May your name Ever this day Be glorified, Amen!
Dear Father God, Good morning to you; Yesterday, you made me Very happy; What about today? You made things easy For me; I did not strain; I saw things moving; I pray that you do same For me today, If not more; Take full control; And push them as you like. Let your will Not mine prevail; Thank you for your goodness To me always; Amen!
