2019 Lessons

Can you believe that in a few hours, 2019 will be over? We are about to enter a whole new decade (God’s willing at least). It seems so surreal to me.

I honestly can’t believe how quickly this year went by. It seems like just yesterday it was the start of a new year and we were just trying to get accustomed to writing 2019 instead of 2018. I mean just the other day I actually did signed a document “2018”.

It’s no joke when they say that time waits for no man.

For the better part of the last three weeks I have been so sick. Which is a rough way to go about ending a year. Especially when the Christmas season (my favourite time of year) falls so close to the end.

Even more disappointing was that because of my unfortunate battle with my health these past few weeks I wasn’t able to continue “Countdown to Christmas”. There were so many things I was looking forward to sharing with you guys, but I guess it’ll just have to wait until next year, hopefully.

There is one good thing that came with being sick though. It was the opportunity to reflect. And trust me I had a lot to reflect on. Its crazy how even though it feels like the year went by in the blink of an eye, it also feels like so much happened this year.

I have learned so much about myself in 2019 that thinking about the magnitude of it actually surprises me.

2019 taught me patience, and I know that sounds cliché, but there were so many situations where I had to learn to wait, to be silent and still and allow God to work things out the way he wanted to.

2019 taught me to Wait on God! This one was hard and I think its a lesson that’ll continue into 2020. But I’ve realized that God’s timing is really best and trying to pursue anything outside of his Will, will only leave me destitute and running back to Him wishing I’d waites in the first place

2019 taught me that sometimes God allows the storms to rage so that we can remember to look to him. The storms were rocky this year and the devil really tried it but in my quest for peace God reminded me of promises and my life changed.

“My suffering was good for me, for it taught me to pay attention to your decrees”. – Psalms 119:71

This scripture definitely sums up my year.

2019 brought me calling! For the majority of the year at church we have been making declarations of purpose and destiny and this year God delivered!! Honestly I believe that the answer was always there but without the hardships of this year I wouldn’t have gotten close enough to God to hear him whispering the words.

Soooo many things happened this year, I feel like it would take me an entire week to type it all. Most importantly though was the fact that this year solidified my relationship with God in so many ways. I am so excited to see what He has in store for me next year.

I pray the very best for all of you during the upcoming year. May your relationship with God, your family and yourself flourish and grow to measures beyond your minds comprehension. I pray that 2020 will be a year of Vision, Answered Prayers and Strength to fight against the devil’s plans.

I want to say a special thank you to all of you for your support this year. To those of you who read faithfully, you are the real MVPs.

Taniel, Stephon, Kiani – you guys are a faithful bunch and your support means more to me than I can say.

I’m sure 2019 has taught us all something. Comment one thing that you’re thankful for this year.

I love you all Chroniclers. Have a lovely evening and do ring in the new year with a shout of praise.

Live Positively ♥️♥️♥️

Hey there, my name is Jann - affectionately known as Keela, hence "Keela's Chronicles". The first thing I should probably tell you about me is that I really love Jesus! I am a wife, daughter, sister and minister (I don't mean pastor - but a minister of the gospel). I started journaling when I was 14 years old and honestly it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Later in life I decided that I would make my journaling public so I started a blog. One of my biggest beliefs when it comes to ministry and christianity is transparency. I believe that in order to affect a life with the gospel, as a christian I need to show that persons how the gospel actively affects and changes my life. So I decided to use my experiences in both the physical and spiritual realms to encourage and inspire others while I'm going through the experiences, and not simply as an afterthought. I have a passion for writing, and inspiring others, especially young women of faith. My hope and desire is that as you read my posts you will feel blessed, motivated and truly inspired to be the best version of yourself in Christ, knowing that you are not alone.
