Embracing 2015

Hello my dear readers

Today I am going to start by telling you the reason to why I love it when a year is approaching to an end and a brand new year is about to begin.

This is a perfect time to reflect on all that has been happening throughout the year. It is usually a perfect time to go through all your goals and plans you had for the year, how did you carry them out, what has been accomplished and what is not yet. The reasons to why the target was not reached, what should be carried to next year, what is no longer important and a lot more.

It's very natural finding out that what mattered to you in January, 2014 is not longer of any importance in November, 2014 so it is always advised to go through your goals, plans, priorities every now and then. As we are winding up the year, it is important to look back and have a reflection of what happened, evaluate ourselves and see what areas should be celebrated and what areas need to be done better next time.

Many of us have big dreams, if you don't have one, it is high time now to dream. Have a vision of your life. I was reading a book entitled "100 Ways to Motivate Yourself" by Steve Chandler. He talked about the interview he had with Arnold Schwarzenegger in 1976. Schwarzenegger made a point on how he was going to accomplish his dream of becoming Hollywood's top star. He said "What you do is create a vision of who you want to be, and then live into that picture as if it were already true."

This is the time for you to have the image of what you want to accomplish in the year 2015, where do you want to go, what should you learn, what books should you read. Do not wait for January to start making those plans.

When Dr. Myles Munroe passed away this year, a number of things came into my mind. It came into my remembrance that Jesus did not live to be 80, 90 or 120 on earth to bring salvation, to transform people's lives. He died and rose again and then He ascended to heaven in His early 30's. What if He waited to start His ministry at the age of 35? It could be already late.
It also reminded me that, I may not be having much time left to make sure that I have unloaded everything that God has placed in me for others.

I want you to challenge yourself for the year 2015. Think of what is it that you really want to do in your life. What is it that when you are on your death, you will surely regret not accomplishing. Where exactly does your passion lie. Create that vision, have a plan and go for it. Do not limit your imaginations. You are able to do anything. If you can dream it, you can accomplish it.

Make the most of your life for God's glory.
