A new year, a new planner. Yep, I got myself a planner. During the previous years, I opted for a somewhat DIY planner. I would just place in the dates and the tasks that I needed to do. But for this year, I felt the need to actually have a legit planner. No, this is not an endorsement for the Everyday planner. I was happily browsing the internet, and stumbled upon it. It was reasonably priced, and had contents that I needed for my daily activities. I feel that with my planner, my life would be so much in track.
Whether you have a planner or not, you would always want to keep your life on track. I mean, I am one of those people. Not a total control freak but I like to keep situations under my control. Last year taught me so much about control. I had to face several challenges then that shed so much light on things beyond my control. As much as I wanted to have a say in things, I just couldn’t do it. 2018 was a tough year for me. I know, it has been a while since I posted something personal here (though if you know me, my private life is very private). On the outside, I may look okay. But deep inside, I was scrambling for answers and constantly asking why such situations happened to me. I guess, there can never be enough answers or a lack even. To be honest, I don’t mind it now. It’s always good to remember that yes, things may be out of my control. But in the bigger picture, I know He’s preparing a bigger plan for me. A plan that is so great, I wouldn’t remember all those challenging times.
And now I wait. Not in a static way but in an active one. We always have to keep on moving despite seemingly bad things that happen to us. There are lots of good things that happened last year too. I don’t forget that, and will always be grateful for those. With my goals for this year, I am definitely geared up, inspired and thankful. So to you who’s reading this, I pray for a good 2019 to you as well. Know that whatever challenges you face, just keep your head on high, fill your heart with faith, and know that everything will turn out right. I’m a little late on my greeting here but a happy and blessed 2019 to all of us! 🙂
Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.” – John 4:13-14
