I must first apologize for not posting anything since the beginning of the year. This lack is not due to the fact that I didn’t have anything to say. Rather, it is a direct result of feeling off whenever I put pen to paper or in this case, fingers to my keyboard. As a result I have a lot of posts awaiting completion.
It is strange how we generally start the new year with high expectations. We have all these resolutions that we say without doubt that we are going to complete. Oftentimes we complete none. This year, I have only one. I have no other goals because I had began to feel like I lack vision in terms of where I want to be. Although I have ideas, these were just ideas in the general sense with no specifics. This, in many ways, is not a good sign especially when it comes to me.
This year my focus involved taking a page from David’s book and watching the pieces fall into place. My one point plan is simple:
Get Closer to God and Watch the Pieces Fall in Place.
One of the things that I realized about David is that his focus was always on God even when he was just a shepherd boy without prospects. Because of this, God carved out an inheritance for him that was beyond his comprehension. David sought God. He maintained his relationship and the pieces fell into place. Who would have imagined a shepherd boy killing a giant everyone feared? Who would have imagined a shepherd becoming king of God’s chosen people? Only God could write such a story!
To kick off my one point plan, I’ve started my journey to completely reading the Bible in one year as a form of Bible study. I must say that it is simply amazing to be reacquainting myself with simple facts that I have forgotten.
As I write this, I am sitting in a bus heading home from a day-long session which centered on Holiness. Today was very eventful and although some stuff were mentioned that I didn’t totally agree, it served as a reminder of how God expected me to approach my relationship with Him.
- I should be pure in mind, thoughts and deed.
- I should be consecrated and sanctified.
- I should be different.
- I should be morally upright.
As I sat and listened, I found myself pinpointing areas that require adjustments.
I’ve come to realize that although I only have a one point plan to execute this year, it is a very tall order to fulfill. After today I am fully decisive to execute it with the help of God. As I set out on this new leg of my journey, I ask you to join with me. GET CLOSER TO GOD AND WATCH THE PIECES FALL IN PLACE.

I am a dynamic young lady who loves the Lord and seek to have a joy that no one can take away. My all-time favourite thing to do is gaining discoveries by design from My Father during our time each day. Reading, learning and trying new things falls behind in a close second place. My dream is to use my God-given talents to positively impact as many people as possible. As a proud Wolmerian, with a zest for life, I adhere to the “Age Quod Agis” motto in that whatsoever I do, I always do it to the best of my ability.
