Encouragement for Now & The New Year

Encouragement for Now & The New Year

As we are vastly approaching the New Year, I would like to send a little encouragement to have hope in today, not January 1. Yes, you should hope that 2017 is the best year ever and confess that it will be but, one thing is for certain, we only have today — make it the BEST DAY EVER!

Desiring peace & prosperity is what we should do and, it should be a part of our daily lives, not something that we withhold for tomorrow or some other future date. Let’s be present now as we take in every single breathe that we have been blessed with.

I challenge you and encourage you to be determined not to look to what you desire in the new year  but instead to desire to make it a year of seeking more greatness in your life, seeking more forgiveness from yourself, seeking to be an encourager, seeking to be a motivator, and seeking to grasp that, “What God has for you is for you and only you!”

Thank God that each and every day we receive new mercies, we start fresh, we are provided one more chance to be everything we are destined to be. See, I’ve learned that no matter what we’ve done, we still have an opportunity to be that much better and, if we believe with our whole heart, we will achieve greatness.

Our number 1 priority in life is feeling good about the life God has given us, seeking His face, and doing what is necessary to have a joyful life by making the ‘right’ choices. Here are a few ways to do that:

  • Be more of a steward than an owner – Help someone else to achieve their goals or meet a need they have.
  • Be focused on God’s glory over self-gratification – Keeping our eyes on God helps to keep us humble.
  • Think rest over being restless – You do not have to do everything and be everything to everyone.
  • Write the vision and make it plain – There is true power in the written word as it will manifest.
  • Confess with your mouth – The earth was created by God’s spoken Word so, speak greatness into your life.\
  • Stop overthinking – We need to train our minds to follow our lead and not the opposite.

So, do not wait another day to think greatness, be greatness, and dwell around greatness. In other words, “Don’t wait ’til the battle is over, SHOUT NOW!”

Move Forward In Righteousness XOXO♥
