As a Christian, you may hear people say that it’s when you are in the wilderness that you hear God better.
Some of you may be wondering, ‘didn’t this babe just say that this year was financially rough for her?’; ‘didn’t she say, she took a whole lot of losses?’. Well, I know what I said. Lol. It really wasn’t an easy year for me but despite all of that, upon further reflection, I realised that this year was definitely a gift. My struggles made me get closer to God. As a Christian, you may hear people say that it’s when you are in the wilderness that you hear God better. Brothers and sisters, I would have to agree.
I have depended on God this year more than I ever have. And I heard Him speak to me more than I have ever experienced and it has been beautiful. When you are in the wilderness, there is an intimacy that springs forth with God when you depend and trust in Him. I have learned so much about my faith and why I worship and I am so glad that this happened.
Jesus is my everything. It gives me great pleasure to be able to hear him and be in his presence. I am still a baby when it comes to the word but I am growing. Dare I say, I think I’ve become a toddler. Lol. God is good.
Also, I feel like I laughed a lot this year. Like a lot lot. I was around people that just kept on making me laugh. I got a chance to travel to England twice this year and not only see my siblings but one of my best babes, Akunna, who is just a cruise babe. Lol. And we always have the best time. And we laugh….My summer was amazing (best summer of my life). It was not a bad year at all.
Normally, when my birthday is approaching, I get depressed. But I haven’t been as depressed this year…instead, I’m excited about the future. I have heard God telling me that he is bringing me out of the wilderness into fertile land. He dropped a verse in my heart a few months ago that I have been meditating on ever since. It’s Haggai 2:9 which reads: “The glory of the latter house shall be greater than of the former saith the Lord of hosts: and in this place will I give peace, saith the Lord of Hosts” and my God is not a man that He should lie.
