Happy New Year Or Sad New Year


So 2018 is nearly over and here comes 2019,

Then a split second after the last day of 2018,

Billions of people across the world will shout, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!

Is it indeed going to be a New Year for us all.

But is it a Happy New Year for all of us??

Some have dubbed the New Year eve [Cross Over and others March Over]..

Well, the question that came into my mind is, Cross Over or March Over to whaaaaat?.

To a Happy New Year as most of us shout on the eve of, or,

To a Sad New Year that most often times becomes a reality hitting home for some, that says to you, nothing is really New in the so called New Year! We are just continuing life as before, sad, discouraged, divorced, unemployed, destitute, unloved, whatever your case maybe.

Not diminishing the excitement and jubilation that comes with that New Year eve, I just want us to check and prep ourselves,

Will we be indeed Crossing or Marching over into a Happy New Year Or Sad New Year?.

Here is my thought: I think the issue that will determine what the New Year holds for us is the decision of what we decide to leave behind and what we carry over into the New Year. I believe if it is indeed a New Year, it means new things in that year. We saying the Old has passed away and behold the New has come. So we have to make a choice of what to loose off now and what to take with, before the called Happy New Year comes along. It may mean some habits, some friends, some connections, some networks, etc.

Always, most people will carry their old grudges, hatred, disappointments, anger, nagativities, from the Old Year into the New Year. This will only spoil the New Year and cause it to be bitter for you. Guys, if it's to be a New Year, let's resolute with a True intention of making it different than the past old year. Forget about the past and continue into a new tomorrow.

I think it's a matter of choice, whether you want to be free or you want to still be a slave of the ghost of your past haunting you in the new year. And hey! Let's give each other a new chance from the failures of yesteryear. Resolve to start anew, afresh.

A New Year, New Chances, New Opportunities to make it right again.

Happy New Year Or Sad New Year

Scripture Ref:

Isaiah 43: 18 “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. 19 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.

Philippians 3: 13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 5: 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation:

The ministry of reconciliation in Corinthians , is a ministry of a second chance, of starting over anew/afresh.

Give yourself a chance to start anew and give God a chance to do it with you.

As for me, I have decided to have a Happy New Year.

Have a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
