And Just Like That, Hello 2022

Happy New Year

And just like that…it’s a new year! We’re still living through this pandemic, but I’m grateful to make it to another year blessed and healthy. I’ve never been big on resolutions, typically because I don’t always follow them, and they’re a lot of pressure. (Am I right?) But I always thought, why only make January 1 a “brand new start”? Every day is a brand new start. So let’s not put the resolution pressure on ourselves, we’ve been through enough the past couple of years. Let’s just focus on today, and let tomorrow worry about itself. Here are a couple of my favorite Bible verses I always circle back to when it’s a new year, new month, or even new week.

My Go-To Verses

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.  See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.

Isaiah 43:18-19

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Matthew 6:34

So, let’s embrace this new day, forgetting the former things, no longer dwelling on the past, and not worrying about tomorrow.

Wishing you a blessed 2022!! Here’s to a new year of blessings and opportunities.

Write Down Your Goals and Step Out on Faith

Write Down Your Goals and Step Out on Faith

In February, I attended a gala to celebrate the life of an awesome man, God-brother, and the founder of Magic Minds Inc. It was a true celebration and a beautiful evening of fellowship. The favor from the gala was a small composition notebook with a pen, and we were told to write down our goals. The significance of a composition notebook to my God-brother is that it was in a composition notebook that Magic Minds Inc. was founded, the business plan was written, and he and the founders stepped out on of faith.
