but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
Date: 31-12-2017 Time: 11:59pm … And five, four, three, two, one. Happy New year! Welcome 2018!!!
We joyfully danced to “He’s got the whole world, in His hand He’s got the whole world in His hand,” celebrating this far God has brought us for His glory, bidding farewell to 2017.
Reminiscing on where we were a time like this, ten years ago as 2007 was bade farewell, we learned from each other just how badly broken and miserable we both were, thousands of miles apart, yet totally broken in very similar ways.
I was completely broken then, only my faith and hope kept me going. I had no money and was barely able to put a meal on the table for the children.
And to make matters worse, my country was slowly plunging into bloody chaos as a murderous frenzy overcame and possessed neighbours to kill each other on tribal lines, in the infamous post election violence. Most people were loosing hope.
And now, here we were ten years later, giving thanks for the new year as we rejoiced and celebrated God’s goodness! How perfect Is God? Two broken people worlds apart, both of us would have bet our life without a doubt if someone had told us that ten years later, we would each be happily married in future. We would never have imagined it in our separate wilderness.
Looking back now at how God in every detail planned and executed His plan in getting us together, we have no doubt whatsoever that, we want to faithfully serve our Lord for the rest of our lives as long as He pleases to keep us on this earth.
I can confidently tell you this, regardless of how messed up your life is right now, however troubled you are right now, whatever the challenge you are going through right now, God Is just within, waiting for you to surrender in totality to Him. If you have, He Is knitting His plan for you, His perfect and pleasing plan for you. Your part, trust and obey Him as He guides you towards your grand reveal!
Is anything too hard for the LORD? I will return to you at the appointed time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”
