Hi Friends, starting next year we won’t be sharing our monthly newsletter on our blog posts. So if you would like to know what is going on in Vegas, subscribe to Helen Majaga International newsletter hahaha.
Friends, I really want you to subscribe. May this coming year be a new dawn and the best year yet for all of us.
Below is what we sent our newsletter awesome subscribers this month of December.
Well, well, New Year is very near. Here at Helen Majaga International we have made progress this year and we have been counting our blessings. We have shared some of our progress just recently on Prayer Covering Your Plans.
I have learned so much this year. Like we have shared on our recent podcast Moving Forward, we want to start making real progress. We want to grow and look back at the end of this coming new year, and continue to counting our blessings.
This is what I understand; when it comes to improving your life, you have to make a stand. You have to make sure that you are in it for better or worse, and there is no turning back. You have to want it so bad like your entire life is depending on it. You have got to be serious.
Sometimes life gives us options to choose. And I have to be honest with you; I like to have options…hahaha. Having options is a good thing, but it depends on what you want to have option about. Having option on what to eat, what to wear, which car to drive, where to go for this year vacation, and so on; it’s awesome, right…? Who doesn’t like that kind of option?
There are kind of other options that you kind of don’t have an option because the best option is the only option. For example the one in the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 30 verse 19 which says God has set before us life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore we should choose life, that both us and our descendants may live.
There are some things in life that they are best when there are no options and are non-negotiable. Only when they are like that we can follow them all the way. Therefore, when it comes to improving your life, your business, your career, and achieving your goals, unless you aspire to achieve and look at them as non-negotiable, and you just have to do them, then you are playing with chances. And its because not all mountains bow down or move when you have options.
In the Bible in the book of Luke chapter 9 verses 57 and 62, it records “Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, “Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.” And Jesus said to him, “Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.” Then He said to another, “Follow Me.” But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.” Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the Kingdom of God.” And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.” But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the Kingdom of God.”
Even though The Lord Jesus was talking about the cost of discipleship, of following Him, but what He has also shown us on this passage is that if you have made a decision on something, don’t look back. Only serious people are fit to achieve their goals and plans.
But we can also learn from The Lord Jesus is that anything worth having is worth chasing after. What I have also understood from this passage if I can put it in a different way is that bad things happen every day, and whatever will be going on in our lives or others, life will still continue with or without our involvement. We can mourn but don’t let it stand in between our glorious destinies. If you want something, go get it. After you make that decision, be serious enough and don’t look back.
Last year I shared on Your New Year’s Resolutions and Goals several reasons why among 100 percent of the people who started the New Year with good intentions, only 10 percent end up achieving their resolutions and goals. And if I can add one more reason it would be because we don’t make our New Year’s resolutions and goals as non-negotiable.
And that’s it my friends. I wish you all the best this coming year.
