The Year 2016 In Review.
Get ready! Get ready! Get ready! I declare that in the year 2017 you will give birth to the visions and dreams that God has given you.
It’s nice to begin the New Year by looking back at some of the highlights and disappointments that happened during the past year. We can learn from our mistakes, and we can improve on our successes.
The highlighted words and phrases are the links to all the favorite posts in each month. Read through this article first then follow the links to refresh your memory on the wonderful things that God is doing.
I have had some great moments in 2016, but I have also had some terrible trials in my family. During the entire summer, my son was severely ill and I lost my husband.
During that time, I went to the bottom of the pit where I searched for a friend to sit with me in the ashes of despair.
But, God is always present wherever we find ourselves, and He rescued me and delivered me from the pangs of the serpent. We began 2016, by declaring the prophetic word over our lives for the entire month of January in the Daily Thanksgiving Devotion.
The Prophecies encouraged you that there is hope in God because you are accepted into the family of God. The Lord is doing good work in your life so you can denounce every word that speaks against you.
Keep Your Eyes on God
During the month of January, we encouraged you to leave the past failures behind and looked towards a future by making a clear pathway to God. We also reminded you that it is harvest time and we need to reap the millennial generation because this is the great move of God.
However, it is impossible for us to participate in this movement if we do not know our inheritance and are walking as fools instead of wise people.
We need to love one other every day with the love of God, but in February we emphasized it. Hence, the Daily Devotion showed you who is love and inspired you to receive and abide in love so that you will be confident in your love to the extent where you can love strangers.
The general posts during the month of February reminded us that there are only one God and one love. When you become complete in God’s love you will do anything for Him even selling all your worldly goods to follow Him.
The Resurrection and Life
During the months of March and April, we celebrate Jesus Christ – the resurrection and life. Thus, our Daily Devotion reminded you of the power of our resurrected Lord and Savior. You can have an abundant life when you hold fast to God and live.
Live wisely and listened to the voice of God. Spend time with God, reflect on His past goodness, honor and obey Him, teach, practice and meditate on Him and He will multiply your blessings, and it will be well with you and your children.
If you are still in the wilderness of trials, ensure that you know its purpose.
Patient Man Rides Donkey
Only a patient man can ride a donkey. So, be patient with me as I continue to relive some of the wonderful memories of the past year.
It was during the month of March that I strayed a little from my regular theme because I became caught up in the humor of the presidential race in the USA.
Although the race for president was long and tiring, most times amusing, I was inspired by one of the candidates because he demonstrated one of God’s plan for us when we get old, which is when we are old we don’t have to be cold.
You also need to be careful who you allow to lay hands on you. You need to know what they are imparting to you.
Ladies, May is your month so get ready to receive your rewards because you deserve them.
I have compiled all of them in one short but spicy post that you can read here.
The Daily Thanksgiving Devotion shared with you a famous woman of the Bible who has impacted the world to this very day. You can’t afford to miss them.
Calling all the boys, young men and older men everywhere! It is your time! June is dedicated to you, and we need your input.
So, come forth O man of God and let your light shine!
Peace Be Still
During the entire months of July and August, we prayed for our teens and young people. Every single day we began the day at 6 AM with a prayer. Do you know that it was during those months that I faced my greatest challenge with my teenage son?
These were some of the problems that we prayed for each day. As a matter of fact, every day the Daily Thanksgiving Devotion focus on a different concern to take to God.
I am so grateful that I was obedient and followed God’s instructions to pray during those months because those prayers gave my family and I strength to endure the onslaught of the enemy.
We overcame by the blood of the Lamb, and now we are testifying to you that God answers prayer.
It is back to school as usual for the children in the month of September.
However, the Daily Devotions and Articles during this month were not specific to the children but were mostly generalized because as I said before, I was going through a very low period in my life as a result of my son’s illness and the death of my husband.
I took comfort in some inspiring devotions and quotes from the internet which I shared in the devotion and mid-day inspiration. They reminded me that we are the apple of God’s eye so we cannot afford to give up.
The month of October begins with a hurricane that devastated a few islands in the Caribbean while others such as Jamaica missed it by the grace of God. The Lord was with those people during the storm, and I know they find peace in the midst of their trials.
Yesterday was January 2016 and today in the twinkling of an eye, is December. What can I say, it is a fulfillment of prophecy because Christ said that the days will be shortened for the elect sake.
We definitely have some elect living in this world, and that is the reason the days are shorter.
Because November was such a successful month we decided to continue the theme – signs of the time- in December.
First, we showed you how to identify the true prophets of God and their functions because so many false prophets and impostors are on the social media, television, in the churches and even in the workplaces.
The Gift Of Love Extends Throughout The New Year
We have reached the end of the 2016 year in review and now that I have looked back I realized that my trials were negligible compared to my triumphs. To God be the glory!
You are special!
My gifts for you in 2017 is that God will remove the reproach of your past and your latter days will be greater than your former and everywhere and in every place that your feet touch you will find peace.
Extra blessings for you!
I feel strongly that this year you will give birth to your destiny!
I know 100% that I will be giving birth this year. I have been carrying this load for a few years, and it is now full time that I give birth.
Trust me it will be big! As a matter of fact, let me borrow one of the famous Donald Trump phrases and said,
“We will win bigly!”
Do you want to know what I will win? Would you like to see what I will give birth to?
Follow this blog closely, and you will not be disappointed.
Thank you, and God bless you.
