Looking For Anything Specific?


Of recent, I spoke with a lady who seems not to have anything working out for her as she had hoped or wanted.

To her, God seems too far away from her, has decided to turn deaf ears to her prayers or punishing her for her mistakes.

She had hoped to at least get some of her desires met and certain dreams come true but yet another year gone by with all hopes dashed.

If you are like this lady and you feel like nothing is working out for you, I would like to encourage you and tell you that all hope is not lost.

God is never late but always on time. He makes everything beautiful in His own time and has the best for us all.

His ways are higher than our ways and thoughts higher than ours - Isaiah 55:9.

He also said in Jeremiah 29:11 His plans for you are for good and not of evil. Plans to give you a hope and a future.

All He requires from us is patience and faith in Him while we wait for His perfect plans to be made manifest in us.

Everyone who seemed to have everything working out for him or her at the moment once felt like nothing was working.  Your dream can still come true in 2022. Your desires can still be met this year. 

All you need is a never giving up spirit - a faith filled spirit to pull through. Like it is commonly said "For as long as there is life, there is hope."

In my office, when a decoder seems not to be working fine or has some issues especially with the GOtv decoders, what we do most times, is to reset that decoder to factory default and restart it in order to get it working fine again.

Same thing applies to us all when it feels like nothing good is happening to us and for us. 2021 was a tough year for almost everyone and 2022 can be better if only we have a shift in mindset.

A mind shift by simply having a reset of mind from the negative experiences of 2021, restarting your mind to accommodate all the possibilities of 2022 and refocusing your mind on these possibilities and everything positive.

If you need to do a reset of your brain and to a factory default to erase every negative experience, then do it. It's for your own mental and emotional good or benefit.

Fill your mind with hope and not despair, faith and not doubt, optimism and not pessimism and all the good things you desire to have in 2022. You can do it.

Philippians 4:8 says "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."

Let your mind be filled with all the good things you desire as long as they are in accordance with God's will for you. That it hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't happen.

If your dream for 2021 did not work, dream again or pursue a new dream with a positive mindset. Don't get stuck. Keep moving

Have a review of what did not work well for you in 2021, learn from all the mistakes or failures and use them as an advantage this year. Reevaluate, re-strategize and keep moving forward. 

take your mind off  all the negative experiences and refocus your mind on the possibility that will work for you this year.

The past is out of your control now. No need wasting your time and energy dwelling on what you couldn't control. You have NOW,  so focus your energy on NOW and make it fruitful.

Do not give up on life because life hasn't given up on you yet and God hasn't given up on you. You are still alive and here. So hold on and hold out. 

You can't change what happened in the past but you can change your thinking from being a failure to a work in progress towards success. 

You have control over your mind so put it under control. According to Mike Murdock "The only place yesterday is happening is in your mind." So let go of the past and move forward with optimism.

When you are able to change your thinking from the negative and take total control of your mind, you ground yourself in the present and empower yourself to think constructively. This will bring positive outcomes to you.

Your thoughts are your most powerful tools to use and conquer every negative thinking and feeling. With it, you can reset, restart and refocus.
