Happy New year!!!!

All through the new year celebration and even several days after, i have had time to think, to reflect, to reminisce on the last year( and all other synonyms that may apply). A lot of things/thoughts came to mind, a lot of songs also came to my mind.
In my mind i was having a conversation with my Lord and we were talking on the past year and the ones to come. I know i have hurt his feelings in more ways than one. I know i have broken his heart time and again. I know i have upset him one too many times, putting a furrow in his brow.
I have said i am sorry a thousand times, i have begged for his mercies even more but beyond all this He has been there.
Even all of my faithlessness was not able to extinguish His faithfulness. All of my foolishness could not drown out his extravagant grace. All my betrayal did not overturn his undying love.
Tell me, how can i not love him like i do???????  So that's why i say from the depth of my heart, in the words of Damita Haddon...my heart, my mind, my soul, my love, my life, the song i sing, the life i live....they all  belong to you. Yes, i surrender it all. Yes, i turn it all over. Yes, it all belongs to you.
More so, i think the song, Moving forward by Isreal Houghton is pertinent especially at this time.

What a moment You have brought me to.
Such a freedom I have found in You.
You're the healer who makes all things new.
Yeah, yeah, yeah!


I'm not going back, I'm moving ahead.
I'm here to declare to you my past is over.
In You all things are made new. Surrendered
My Life to Christ. I'm Moving, Moving Forward.


You have risen with all power in Your hand.
You have given me a second chance.
Hallelujah, hallelujah!
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah!


I'm not going back, I'm moving ahead.
I'm here to declare to you my past is over.
In You all things are made new. Surrendered
My Life to Christ. I'm Moving, Moving Forward.


You make all Things new.
Yes, you make all things new and I will Follow You forward.


I will follow you forward.....


Here's wishing everyone a happy new year( it's never too late for that wish, right?) and hoping you share these...sentiments. May the rest of our days be the best of our days:)
