Present. It is a gift to us. The past has gone and the future is yet to come, but the present is what is here right now. Are we sitting there like a child at Christmas and unwrapping the present, taking hold of it and making the most of it? Or are we sitting there with a negative view, thinking that we won't like it and that it will all be bad, like some past experience?
Will you take a hold of the present. Don't allow yesterday's issues to taint the way you view the present, which you have right now. Make the most of it and learn to live expectant for the future, while keeping your feet firmly planted in today.
Today, we have the hope of tomorrow, so live like your present is all you have to make a difference, while planning like you have eternity. Make every day count. Don't wait for tomorrow.

No Entry. Some of us look at a No entry sign as something never to be crossed, never to be questioned. And when it relates to the law and the natural, then no, you should not be going where it says no entry, it is there for a reason, most likely to keep you safe and out of danger.
But when it comes to our mind and our heart, so of us, I think have created our own no entry signs, as a result of the hurts that we have faced. We have become hard and have built up walls and put no entry signs in places, to stop us even going there or thinking about certain painful memories, or dealing with issues. Unlike in the natural when a no entry sign is present, it should be obeyed, when a sign like this is present in our mind, I wonder if maybe we should be challenging it?
What if this sign, was keeping stuff in the dark, that was festering and growing and causing a bigger issue and we in fact need to go and deal with it and turn the light on? For some of us, this may involve seeking professional counselling or support in the process, as you deal with some of the stuff that has been hidden behind a wall for a long time.
Sure it may not be pleasant, but in the end, bringing stuff in the life, means that it no longer has a hold on us, in the same way that it did, when it was hidden in the dark.

What is it that you can view from your life? Is the vision a good one, or are you focusing so much on the past and the mess, that you have missed seeing the amazing vision ahead?
Do you need to take a moment to look at what you are viewing and see if it lines up with your priorities? Do you need to readjust your focus? Get a clear vision for your future from the one who made you, because He says, for I know the plans I have for your, plans to give you a hope and a future.

When you look out into the ocean, but because of the fires, it is so smokey, that you can't even see what is out there. Some of us may feel like this in our lives, we look ahead, but we see nothing and can't be sure, even what is there.
Would you trust the one who holds all wisdom to lead you beyond what you can see. He is faithful, He made you, He loves you and He will never let you go. You can trust him all the way.
You can step into the unknown, not because you know where you are going, but because you know who holds tomorrow. You can trust his word, that he will never leave you or forsake you and so, you can go with boldness and confidence into the unknown, knowing that there is a bight future ahead, because we go from glory to glory.

I was at the farm the other day, watching Rosemary look after her new little lamb. She was nurturing it and giving it her attention and care. At that particular time, as the lamb was new born, it was her focus. As the lamb grows up, her focus will change a bit, until its time for the lamb to find her own home.
Sometimes we like this sheep go through seasons where need to change our priorities and focus on specific things. Have you thought about your priorities lately? What is important? What do you value? How can you nurture the things in your life that you need to? What might need to change?

Light. It is a beautiful thing. It allows us to see things that we wouldn't be able to see, with out it. And the great thing about light is, once it shines on something, no amount of darkness can stop the light from shining. Light overcomes darkness; darkness cannot overcome light.
What do you need to bring into the light this year, so that you can deal with it? Things in the dark, fester, rot and become bad. While things in the light, can grow and become new.
Maybe it's time to let the light of Jesus shine into some of those dark hidden spots and then allow healing to come. Yes, you may not like what you see, but that's okay, there is always hope and with time change can come.

I know this might seem like a strange picture to put up. But hey, if it catches your attention, then why now. So this is a picture of the hose going from the radiator on my car, to the engine and the other day it was leaking, which it should not do and therefore the engine started to overheat. So my question to you, is; what is it in your life that is leaking? Are you loosing hours every day, because you waste 5min here and 10 min there and 30 min there and 20 min there, maybe even on social media? Is what you are doing constructive and helping you to grow?
Maybe it is time to take stock and stop up some of those leaks, so that you can go into 2020 strong.
Could it be that there are relationships in your life that are draining you and you need to something to make a change in this area? Or do you need to reevaluate where you are going career wise? Maybe it's time to do something different?
You can make a change this year and have a healthier, hope filled future.

Leaning. Some of us love it and some of us maybe think we hate it. But truth of the matter is, that we are all learning something new every day. Some of us make an effort to learn and grow, while others of us just drift through life, with no real intention to grow or learn. Dare I say to you, we all need to be growing and learning all our life. If we get to a certain age and say we know it all, then we will either be thought of as a stuck up snob, or we will become old and stale and start going backwards.
Make a choice to keep learning. I believe everyone can enjoy learning, if you find a style of learning that you enjoy and topics you want to learn about. So why not find something you can grow in today? Why not even face the fear of the unknown and dare to try learning or changing or growing in an area that you have avoided for a long time.

Undercover. Sometimes this word is used in a good sense, if we say we are undercover when we it is raining. While someone who is undercover, like undercover boss, might in fact find some hidden things that we didn't want them to see.
What is it in your life that is undercover? What do you need to bring into the light, so it doesn't affect your future?
Yes it might mean you have to get your hands a bit dirty and be prepared to uncover some stuff that might be a bit painful, but would you rather keep carrying your past around? Would you rather still have this buried inside you, so that the next thing you face, it is seen through the hurt of your past.

Just hold on. When you feel like all hope is gone. Hold on. Sometimes it takes courage to admit that you feel like you have nothing left, but when you do, don't give up, because there is always hope for tomorrow. The little hope you see may seem very small, but it only takes something small to grow.
This tiny little green shoot, not only has the possibility to grow into a massive big leaf, with other leaves branching off it. It even has the possibility of growing more steams and thus even more leaves. It could even become a big bunch of leaves. But even more than that, it could also bear seeds and then multiply.
So no matter how small the hope seems, hold on, because little can become greatness.
Don't under estimate the power of what a little can achieve, if nurtured.
