Happy 2018! I hope that last year was fruitful for you. I am not focusing on material prosperity, but spiritual prosperity when I say that! I pray that you let the Lord have HIs way with you. That He pruned you just as He needed to so that you can bear much fruit. I pray that in 2018, you will indeed bear that fruit, too.
As you walk with God in this new year and spend time in fellowship with Him, as you seek and grow, that you find comfort in all your sorrows and deep inner peace, the kind of peace that passes all understanding and that it will remain in you. I pray that as your day is filled with comings and goings, that you are so determined to mature as a believer that you can identify exactly what it is God is teaching you.
As for myself, as my blogs over the past couple of years have reflected, God has taught me to love with a purpose, to deliberately seek His face with intent, to learn how to drive instead of letting others do my driving for me, to pay it forward, and many other things. This year, I feel inclined to concentrate on my style. I want to bring every area of my life together. I even want to dress in such a way that I feel reflects is. I want to pinpoint my goals and get focused. I feel this is the year I march towards something.
In 2017, I learned a lot. I learned music software. I learned how to record with my keyboard using this software. I learned how to edit my songs. I learned how to make lyric videos. I spent a lot of time promoting my material. This year, I want to tighten and fine-tune that knowledge and create even better songs. I want to prepare myself for growth. And I am expecting my Creator to make something good from all of my creative talents.
I pray this year that, you, too, are able to focus on your gifts and talents and give them back to God. I think if you are able to do this, you will feel satisfied at the end of the day. For each person breathing, I want you to receive all that God has stored up for you in your life, and that you reach your fullest potential.
So, I send up my prayers, and will keep sending them, and I go to my watchtower and wait.
I pray a happy and prosperous 2018 for you, too!
