Prepare for your best year ever! 2018
Can you believe it?
2017 is coming to a close
And we are heading into 2018?
Which will be my third year of blogging, by the way
I believe 2018 is going to be a great year for all of us
So, prepare yourselves for your best year ever!
I always seek God on what He wants me to say through my blog
And He always gives me a word
I believe the word He’s given us for 2018 is
Whenever a ballet dancer is ready to start a move, the teacher says, “Prepare”
I believe God is our teacher, and He’s saying to us, “Prepare”
Prepare to move in readiness for what He has in store
Prepare to be vigilant and adjust to the changes
You need to make for your promise to come to pass
When you prepare for something, you’re getting ready
You anticipate the change
I believe that God has been building the foundations of your faith these past two years
As I’ve written my blog posts
Discovering your IDENTITY was the focus in 2016
RISE became our mantra in 2017
And now we need to PREPARE for 2018
I believe that Romans 5:3-5 will be our foundational Scripture for the new year ahead of us
‘There’s more to come. We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles, because we know how troubles can develop passionate patience in us, and how that patience in turn forges the tempered steel of virtue, keeping us alert for whatever God will do next. In alert expectancy such as this, we’re never left feeling short-changed. Quite the contrary – we can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours out into our lives through the Holy Spirit!’ (The Message Bible)
I truly believe that God has laid the groundwork
There is more to come, my friend
And I’m excited!
2018 is going to be your best year ever!
You have been patient for His promises
You’ve been hemmed in with troubles
And that patience, through the tough times
Has forged in you the tempered steel of virtue
You have now awoken and are alert
For everything God has in store for you
So, He needs you to PREPARE
He needs you to let Him be the Author of your Faith
And write Truth into your story
To let Him heal the shame, disappointments and failures
That had a stronghold over you
Lies from the enemy that defined you
But now, dear friend you know your IDENTITY
And you have learnt to RISE
So, if you want a safe, comfortable 2018
Then don’t read my blog posts anymore
Close your computer down now and walk away
But, on the other hand
If you’re ready to step out into the glorious unknown
Then GET READY
And PREPARE to be amazed!
BEST. YEAR. EVER IN 2018!

yep so agree, there is an expectancy in the air, 2018 has that expectation of good things to come, praise God, but not good things the world is expecting, but good things that followers of Christ are expecting, Prepare to be amazed by God, Yep I sure am.
