It’s Saturday evening by the time I am writing this. I was so clueless about what to write that I just muttered “we will have something to write tomorrow for the week”. Reading someone’s post on WordPress gave me a spur to writing on something similar. But I had a hard time deciding on it, as I had other themes crowding my mind. Then this theme popped up and I laughed. Interestingly, I still don’t know why I gave it a good laugh. But hoping we would figure that out soon. 😀
So a quick question to you: What were your goals for the year?. I mean those specific goals you wrote down in your journal. Or maybe you were like me, you pasted it and hung it somewhere you would see often and be reminded of it.
Where are you with it right now?. Halfway or not even started on it yet?.
Oh my!. This is interesting for me because if someone told me I would be where I am today, in a city, I so detested. I would have looked at the person with that side-eyes 🙄 of – Nah, it can’t happen. 😂
It is so hilarious for me, but it is what it is, yeah?.
So this post is so not to make you feel worse than you may feel about whatever isn’t going according to plan right now for you. But to encourage you to see the bright side of it.
I remember one of the quotes from last week’s post that states “I know I have God and He knows exactly what He is doing”. This right here is exactly my message to you today, dear.
You may have not ticked off any of your stated goals for the year even though you made several efforts to make it happen. And that right there, just because you attempted it; you tried at it, makes you a better person than you started this year. The goal for most of us is to tick off our goals and come out in the public or social media to state how we killed or crushed our goal literarily. 😂
But then, we forget the process it took for us to get there. So you may not have crushed all or any of your stated goals, but the fact that you attempted it makes you a far better person than you started off in the year.
Don’t ignore your process. Oh yes dear, you are heading somewhere, and just as Joseph got to that place he dreamt of eventually, and David did too, you are going to get there. Sooner or later, you will.
And the blessing in this is that you have a God that knows what He is doing, who is always at work in you.
Is someone excited just as I am? 😊💃
For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfill your purpose] for His good pleasure.

Abba is intentional about you. And yes, nothing went wrong with you just because you didn’t crush or murder that goal. 😀📌
Everything went right with you, by His timing and will for you. 🙌💯
Stop moping around and be encouraged. 🤗
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead. You are priceless and worth His Love. ❤
