2011 ...renewed hope

2010 promised so much and delivered so not as much.

I wept emotionally and financially
Discouragement, disappointment and depression were my companions

There were days i had no cash...literally in my purse or in the bank
Salaries were delayed and not even paid out-rightly for three months stretch
my younger brother couldn't return to school...no money to pay his fees
I was called from the office one day that my dad was found unconscious at home
my 6 year relationship crumbled


Misfortunes came in triples


it rained..it poured


all gloom..all doom


But i trusted God
I remembered everything he has done for me in the past
I called upon him
and he answered
He showed me great and mighty things i couldn't dare dream of
He showed me i wasn't alone
He gave me triple for my troubles
laughter for every tear


I couldn't ask for a more perfect end to the year
Indeed God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow


This year, i am hoping to be more true to him
Pay my tithe regularly
Have my devotional everyday
go to church and mid week service regularly, etc


If you are going through a hard time at the moment
just hang in there
God is able
and shall give you joy for your mourning
Just the way morning comes after night without fail


Happy 2011
Keep the faith

GOD is forever faithful. We fail, we fall, sometimes we think its all too hard to handle...but He is there.

Thank God.
This year would be the best yet and all that was lost in 2010 would be regained and all that could have been found would be found in 2011. Amen.

Happy New Year
