HAPPY & PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR! As I look back over 2018, all I can say is that "GOD HAS BEEN GOOD TO ME!" 2018 has been an AMAZING year of learning, growing, healing, discovery & FREEDOM! It is a year with great significance because I reached a milestone in my life on my birthday, June 18th! I turned the BIG 50, my year of JUBILEE, my year of FREEDOM & LIBERTY! In honor of that celebration, I threw myself TWO parties; a party-party and a sit down elegant, formal Dinner Party with close family and friends. God spoke these words to me as I pondered on the fact that 'Wow, I'm 50'...……..God said, "I'M JUST GETTING STARTED!" Age is really nothing more than a number to me! Many who know me, know that I have the energy & SPUNK of a 20-something year old! That's just me, I'm FULL of LIFE & ENERGY!! And I LOVE, LOVE being around people full of life and energy.
"I'M JUST GETTING STARTED!" I immediately knew what God was saying, "buckle your seat belt Catherine, I'm getting ready to take you on the RIDE of your LIFE, you're not just getting OLDER, you're getting BETTER!" Literally every since God spoke that to me, I live each day with GREAT EXPECTATION of seeing what God is 'up to' concerning His plans for my life! I'm TRULY living my BEST LIFE!
"For I know the thoughts and PLANS that I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans to PROSPER you and give you HOPE & a FUTURE!" (Jeremiah 29:11)
"How PRECIOUS are your thoughts (plans) concerning me, O God. They can NOT be numbered! I can not even count them; they OUTNUMBER the grains of sand!" (Psalm 139:17-18)
My declaration this year will be that "I'M EXPECTING, I'm PREGNANT with POSSIBLITIES!" To 'expect' means to (1) to wait, (2) to be PREGNANT, to await the birth of one's child, (3) to anticipate or look FORWARD to the coming or occurrence of.
I'm LOOKING FORWARD to what 2019 & beyond holds for me, my family & church family and my businesses. I'm decreeing that EVERYTHING (and everyone) attached to me WINS and that no matter where I find myself in life, it's my WINNING SEASON (I'm not waiting to WIN, I've already won because of my God whose on my side)! Let me encourage those of you who are faced with difficult situations. DO NOT, let me say it LOUDER for the people in the back, DO NOT allow your current situation to DEFINE you, don't count yourself out. LIVE with the 'expectation' of God moving on your behalf for a BETTER tomorrow! Trust me, I know!! THINGS DO GET BETTER!
I raise my glass and TOAST to BETTER DAYS ahead for you in 2019! Repeat after me, "I'M EXPECTING, I'M PREGNANT WITH POSSIBILITIES!" God LOVES you REAL BIG and so do I!
