December 2014: The Month Of Reflection

Greetings to you all. I just want to take this opportunity to thank God first who has given me the vision to conduct a women’s ministry group, and for everyone who has supported this ministry; for those I know and do not know yet, God richly bless you! Women’s lives are being changed! I am receiving great and encouraging messages from a couple of people, and I can only give God the praise for that. That aside, I want to speak to you regarding this month of DECEMBER. We have seen how great God has been throughout the past 11 months, but December to me, is a month of reflection; it is a┬átime to meditate on the things God has done for you, the pain you went through in this year, what mistakes you have made and how you learnt from them, what impact you made towards other people, and what you can do to become a better individual in 2015.


 

December is a month where we have to analyse our selves; what are the decisions we aim to make towards a better 2015..How can we be effective and powerful towards our generation? How can we become more committed and deeply intimate with Christ? When reflecting, it is important to position your mindset positively, knowing that 2015 won’t be the same as 2014. What mistakes have you made this year that you refuse to take it with you into 2015? Be honest with yourself. We have to know what our strengths and weaknesses are in order to have a better 2015. We must use our strengths to overcome our weaknesses. Let this month be a time to also thank God for all the things He has done; for all the opened and closed doors, all the laughter and tears, the quiet and lonely moments, it is all working out for our good!

How can we make an impact towards our generation? This could be the month in which we make good decisions on how we can help others. It is important that we have a passion to help others, although we need to help ourselves, helping others will enable God to meet all our needs in due season. We won’t have to worry about anything, but trust that God has already ordered our steps. What could you do to improve yourself? How can you bring influence onto your generation? Rather than listing all the things you desire in 2015, let this remaining month be a time to renew your relationship with God, and to allow Him to use you in a way that you have never been used before.

Entering into 2015 must start with a positive mindset! We cannot wait until it reaches 12:00am 01st January 2015 until we decide to be happy. Being happy starts from within, It starts now! Even though you did not obtain all you desired this year, it is now an opportunity to trust that God will answer your needs according to the amount of Faith you have. What is is that you desire from God in 2015?


 

Some of the thoughts that run through our mind may consist of:

  • Having a personal intimate relationship with God.
  • Having low self-esteem and unbelief.

  • Feeling insecure and lonely.

  • Trying to imitate somebody else.

  • Trying to find joy in worldly things.

  • Lack of Faith and doubt for the future.

  • Suffering from your past experiences.

  • Not knowing your calling… (Will continue this in January)

All these things we have been through or is currently going through, but I strongly believe that in this last month, if we all make a decision that we will lay aside all our burdens, to keep our focus on Christ, and to help this generation for the better, we will see the Glory of God manifest in our lives. Christmas is also around the corner. We can use this as an opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost, to buy gifts for people you wouldn’t usually buy gifts for, and to be a support to your neighborhood. There are so many ways in which we can be a blessing! Remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, so we must be reminded that we are living for Him and not for ourselves.


 

As we prepare to enter into a new year very soon, I pray that those who have been encouraged by this ministry will continue to grow in the Lord and to make a positive impact towards others. If it is a desire to travel, to set up a business, to pass your driving test, to find a job, all these can be yours if you renew your mind. There is nothing that God cannot do, because He said that as we seek Him first, all other things shall be added unto us. Remember we are a chosen generation called forth to show His excellence! We must know who we are in Christ to have a successful 2015! #ThinkBig #ActBig #MoveBig #2015 #GreaterThingsAreComing!

Be blessed.
