As I sit to type this, Gratitude by Brandon Lake is playing in my spirit. These lyrics in particular:
“Come on my soul, don’t you get shy on me,
Lift up your song cause you’ve got a lion inside of those lungs,
Get up and praise the Lord!”
My new year is finally here! Look who is grateful. When I think of what the past year has looked like, I believe gratitude is all I have to express. My inner circle knows how much I valued the past year, from March 2020 to March 2021. Alas, whatever has a beginning indeed has an end, and a new dawn is here! A whole new year to live out! Chart new territories, face new battles, build capacity, and most importantly, kiss the waves!
Whoop Whoop ! for the second time in my life so far, it’s blissful to anticipate a new year, not knowing what the year will look like or the many journeys I will embark on. There is a child-like curiosity in me to see what my new age births. However, I am silently reminded that my decisions will also determine my destiny. Hence, I had better submit myself to the best decisions in line with who I am and Heaven’s vision for me.
And so, on this note, the writer scripts her birthday wishes to herself:
“Tolulope, never lose your essence,
Tolulope, keep your wide-eyed wonder of your Abba and His creation,
Tolulope, keep pushing the frontiers, never stop dreaming, never stop growing,
Tolulope, I would still love you at a hundred and shake my head in silent wonder at how far your ABBA’s grace has carried you.
Cheers to new stories and territories in this new year 💫💙.”
