Happy new year everyone! I hope everyone welcomed 2018 with full of love and happiness.
We’re maybe quite stressed the past two days in preparing for New Year’s Eve. We were in a rush going to supermarkets to buy stuff. Everyone was so busy, heavy traffics were everywhere, malls were crowded, long lines at the cashier! We all endured those things just to make sure we will have our grandest celebration in welcoming 2018.
As we welcome the year 2018, let us first reflect and thank God for 2017. Last year may be good or bad for some but let us focus on what we called “landmarks” of our journey last year. These landmarks may be the happiest moments or events or these may be the toughest times of our year. Everything that had happened to us gave us something to ponder on and gave us lessons. We must focus on those learnings and bring them as we move on to another journey this year. Let us not forget to put God in the center of our daily journey in life.
I, myself had gone through so many things last 2017, there were ups and downs, it came to a point that I felt so down, I even asked God “Why?” But then, He made me realized that, really, everything happened for a reason. He made me understand the reason for those things and accept them whole-heartedly. If you will just learn to lift everything to God you will really feel His presence and His promise “Cast your burdens upon me and I shall give you rest”.
As I welcome 2018, I will bring those learnings and make them as my stepping stones for my new journey! We may not know what lies ahead this year but one thing is for sure, our Lord God will always be with us!
Happy new year everyone! Always be a blessing!
