Dear World Changer,
‘’Its time to claim your year!
2018 is yours!
Declare the word the Lord has for you!’’
All these phrases griped me just before New Year’s Eve. And so, I really began praying into 2018. Suddenly, PERSEVERANCE struck me.
Last year “to build” struck my fiancé at the time and I. Therefore 2017 became a year of new beginnings where foundations were going to be built. Now with new foundations set, we know that storms and tribulations will come. Therefore our prayer is that we will be able to stand and persevere, with God’s grace, whatever comes our way.
On a more personal note, God has shown me that I must persevere in being consistent and disciplined in different areas of my life. The first is making intentional devoted time with God in the mornings, which is hard for me to be honest as I am not the biggest morning person, just ask my husband. The second is being disciplined in my health habits. This means not eating the foods that make me sick and exercise regularly. Lastly, persevere in getting out my comfort zone to reach the goals and dreams God has placed on my heart.
Now as I lean on God’s plans I pray that through the course of this year I learn how to overcome difficulties and trials to experience the victory we have in Christ!
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance, perseverance character; and character hope. “
Romans 5:3-4 (NIV)
