Looking back on the year so far.
On the night of 31st December 2019, I went to church and as we counted down to the New year, I made a silent wish that the next year would be the best yet. 2020 was probably looking down with a smirk on the face cracking his knuckles waiting for the turn. Such a self-absorbed and narcissistic one, he needed all the attention and he was out to get it.
My year started on a fairly good note. I was looking forward to completing service and life after. Shortly after, Corona happened.
It felt like the world was coming to an end. It was a rollercoaster for many, it came with heartbreaks, loss of life, and jobs. A lot of fear and panicking.
I felt real fear, none I had ever felt before. But it was not all negative for me.
2020 has been the year that has forced us to slow down. I said at the beginning of the year that I wouldn’t make plans but I did and corona was like ”do make I see”. It has forced us to take a critical look at ourselves and has forced us to be with ourselves.
It has been a year of growth and self-awareness. It has taught me how to appreciate the journey, the process, and the little wins. God’s presence in my life has been so tangible and his word has been true. I built a lot of meaningful friendships and relationships.
It’s 9:36 pm as I type this and all I can say is this year, my wish came true. It’s a best, not the kind of best we know but it was one crazy and intense ”best”. One that came with many lessons and stories that will be told for eternity. The lord has been faithful. It was certainly not an easy year but it was a good year. I am grateful and happy and confident that if I can survive in 2020, I can survive anything.
