The Two Promises
It’s December already, just in the blink of an eye, an year has passed.
An year that lacked life to it, am not talking about all the people globally, but I know I am one among many who gone through the same.
An year that took away those little joys and freedom we enjoyed.
I know it wasn’t easy so far, and still unsure about what’s ahead.
I missed the warmth of being home with all the family,
I missed the unplanned travels we set off to,
I missed the pleasure of being with friends and our little dine outs,
I missed the fun of window shopping,
I missed the church and the after-service gathering,
I missed the walks with my colleague and her strict fitness training sessions,
I missed the very many little things I enjoyed that made my moments to memories worth cherishing.
Above all, I missed a couple of significant commitments I had for myself and my family.
At times, I felt lost, hopeless and broken.
Yet again, I reminded myself the unfathomable love of God, that led us safe with his guardian angels above us, all the year through.
Yes, these two promises led me through until now and I believe will for the rest of my life.
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
For I Know The Plans I Have For You’ Declares the Lord, ‘Plans to Prosper You and Not to Harm You, Plans to Give You Hope and a Future.
