🙂

For 2009,
I don’t want to think about it yet. I’ll hand it to God, for Him to lead me through next year.

Thanks Lord, for the beautiful 2008.
For things good and bad, I give thanks to You.

Jer 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

The equally abundant negative things which happened throughout the years played a part in making my 2008 memorable and meaningful, really.

Honestly, I’ve always believed that the so called ‘negatives’ are actually positives in disguise. They accelerate our growth, and train us in various aspects in the fastest speed possible. That is why all my past years had been great.

And with that verse reassuring all of us once more, there’s no reason to panic, as long as we believe in God, and follow the route paved by Him.

Thanks Lord, once again, for 2008
🙂
