This has been a very eventful year for me and the family. We just hosted Christmas at our place and have had a great time over the festive period with family and friends. I’m now off work for the week and taking some time to reflect on the year that has been and the year to come.
God has been really good to me, my family and our church throughout the year, despite losing loved ones and facing myriad difficulties God has proven himself faithful and true… it has really been a Romans 8:28 year.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.” (Romans 8:28, ESV)
As we look forward to 2018, I’m convinced that God will continue to guide and bless us as we affirm our allegiance to him and put our trust in him, working as his place makers in the earth, spreading his kingdom and message wherever we go and in whatever we do.
I would challenge you to prayerfully set goals for the new year, don’t just drift into the new year and don’t get caught up in resolutions… instead set some actual goals that you will work toward.
For me, the last half of 2017 became less productive in terms of the books, courses, blog articles and videos I should be working on. I aim to rectify this with a manageable productivity plan for 2018 which I pray will bring glory to God and joy to his people.
Let me take this opportunity to wish you a productive, God-glorifying New Year.
Soli Deo Gloria!
