Today the 10th of January, is my grandchild's third birthday. I celebrate God's goodness and favor towards me through this child.
I stopped writing resolutions many years ago. It didn't work well for me. I now do themes for each year. And this year my theme is 1 Corinthians 13v13 - 'And now these three remain : faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love '.
Whatever happened in the last year, wherever it left me spiritually, physically and emotionally, I am still assured of these three unchanging elements of my Christian belief - faith, hope and love.

We are distracted by titles - Pastor, Engineer, Accountant, etc, and we
tend to live according to those titles.
Find the common denominator in all you do and utilise that.
We need to be challenged daily
Going into areas that best impact people
You are no greater than the people around you
Your dreams should be bigger than you
Juggling issues, not holding onto one for too long, delegate to right people
If overwhelmed, maybe there is a need to restructure
Have the grace to let go of yesterday's vision
Word of Encouragement
You are gifted with multiple talents. God wants to take them and increase them.
God has given you more than your life shows. Be fruitful.
You are more than the cheque you are being paid.
You are more than the titles you have been given.
Remind yourself of this:
God has put a seed in you. He is challenging you. What are you going to do about that seed to make a difference in your life and other people's?

"If you will trust in God, He'll fight your battles for you. It doesn't matter what you are going through, or how big your opponents are. Keep an attitude of faith. Stay calm. Stay at peace. Stay in a positive frame of mind. And don't try to do it all your own way. Let God do it His way. If you will simply obey His commands, He will change things in your favor."

That is my spot right now!
Yet God is always faithful. He always finishes what He starts. And along the way He gives us His Word.
Like this word from an article by Pastor Emmanuel Makandiwa in today's newspaper:
"When God is inviting you to new levels and experiences, there is need for you to prepare yourself for the better life that God is inviting you to. If the presence of God has shifted to another place you have to pursue it. In the Bible Israel would move as the presence of God moves.
There was a cloud that when it moved they also had to move, their pace was dictated from above.
When the cloud moves, you move! Wherever you are, keep on checking if you still have the cloud of the presence of God upon your life, upon your career and upon your relationships. If it is no longer there, find out where it is and follow it!"
