Yesterday (2017)😁, so many of my whatsapp contacts posted updates, you know the normal end of the year status updates. 95% of my contacts posted. Gosh, all them waistbead status people😖😖😖
Most teenagers were posting updates like “2018, more money, more money blah blah,more this more that.”
Majority of my contacts in the adult category posted about thanking God, setting goals for the new year and one particular status update that caught my attention was the one that said “Happy new year, start with Jesus“.
I remembered the many posts about money and other minor things and then I realized that we could get everything if we are deeply rooted in Jesus. Of course there are so many rich people today that have made it without Jesus but I believe that Jesus is paramount because it is written in Proverbs 10:22 (KJV) The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
What’s your plan for 2018?
- To make more money? Fantastic!
- To start a business? Fabulous! Of course the fact that we’re teenagers doesn’t stop us from being entrepreneurs.
- To make more friends? Really nice! Make sure they’re sensible friends sha.
- To get new gadgets? Super cool!
I’m sure there are so many other things to add to this list.
But then do not forget the God factor. Really really really really really really really important. I could go on with the reallys to emphasise how important God is.
So check your plan for this year, if you don’t have one it’s not too late to create one.
Ensure that you set clear goals with spiritual backings. I mean take it to the Lord in prayer!!! 1 Thessalonians 5:17 (KJV) Pray without ceasing.
Then set time for each goal, you could have monthly goals or bimonthly or quarterly. Well, anyone that suits you. Also set time for reviews to see how well you’re doing.
Try to study the book of Proverbs over and over. There are so many words of advice for we young people😎. Last year, I tried to read a chapter per day though I wasn’t really consistent 😶 but I’ve decided to be steady (May God help me).
As Christians, we’re always on duty, it’s a no rest zone oh! Spread the word of God, help others, give cheerfully and serve God fearlessly. Happy new year! Have a blessed day, week, month and year! God bless you. Yass! Today is Monday and its a public holiday.😁💃💃 I’m so glad.
