August has had a snail pace and that alone has worked me . Just 31 days of highs and major lows that I had no control over. I am glad to say , I made it through with God, No doubt.*yaaaay*
A few lessons learnt from my August which I will be sure to carry into my September. I love personalizing my months.
#1.Beholding God and this simply means, choose to focus on Him alone like the psalmist in psalm 121 .
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills-from whence comes my help
My help comes from the Lord,who made heaven and earth.’’
Let your mind ,body and soul behold everything God and then your situation is powerless because of who you believe in.Let your focus be on the King because He still has one more move and His plans for you are perfect.
See God in your every day and that will allow you behold Him and not lack, sickness, loss………………..
#2.New isn`t so bad after all.
I needed a new playlist of Gospel music so I took to the internet and I fell on a song by Nathaniel Bassey of the popular hit song ,“Imela”. The new song I found is Onise Iyanu which means God of awesome wonders which he did with Micah Stampley a gospel legend.
I can`t get enough of this song and my old playlist is now forgotten at least for a month as I can sing all songs even in my sleep.
Try out something new in September ie skills, songs, movies, books to read, adventure plans, new restaurants….just try something new, you just might enjoy it.
#3.Old isn`t so bad either
I reread Redeeming love by Francine Rivers and boy this novel is a classic , I first read it in my second year at Campus courtesy of a beautiful soul and sister-Samantha . When I read it the second time , it was timely. God reminded me of His love for me in spite of what I do and will ever do. He loves me immensely and with no expectations. He keeps on looking out for me even when like Angel Hosea I go back to my old ways and shun His perfect love.
Gist of this is, go through some of your old books ,notes made in church or from a conference and see what you find.
So I journey into September with the confidence that, I am loved immensely by a good, good Father.
Have a fun filled September and follow your dreams, achieve those goals; the year just got better.
Remember your past is a prophecy for your future. “If He did it before, He will do it again. Same God right now, same God back then.”(Another song on my playlist by Tye Tribett)
Share with me some lessons from your August.
