I have chosen this verse as the theme for the year 2021, as a reminder that no matter what you are phased with, you must always bear in mind that you are making a difference, you matter and most importantly you are worthy.
Lamentations 3:22- 23
”You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. ”You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
If you were looking for a sign this is it. This is your reminder that you should never give up – be it on your business ideas, your goals, hell not even on yourself.
Salt enhances the taste in food, there’s not a single dish that tastes good without some seasoning. You are as important. I don’t know a single person who prefers their food without the salt it’s either they want their food with just a little bit of salt. Just as salt is seasoning to food So are you, you add value, you are here for a purpose. Too often we lose sight of our journey and we end up not being fulfilled because we focus on what we lack, what we want, what could have, what should be. Forgetting on appreciating and embracing the journey.
God has good plans for us, but they require us to work hard in pursuit of His will for our lives. We must take up our crosses and decide to follow Jesus through every obstacle that presents itself. We must seek Christ as our greatest treasure and satisfaction.
If we are chasing our plans, goals, and ambitions, or that of the world without asking for guidance or protection from the Lord we are only delaying ourselves from our victories. “You are the light of the world” this is a reminder to keep fighting the good fight, assuring us it would not only be worth it here on earth but for eternity.
This is a reminder that we should put God at the centre of our lives and he will direct us. Not only that, but we are all born with a purpose and it is up to us to discover it, with the help of God of course always ask him to direct your plans. ❤️
