One day God said to the prophet Samuel, “How long wilt thou mourn for Saul? Fill thine horn with oil and go… for I have provided’’ (1 Samuel 16 :1).
Samuel had grieved so much about the death of Saul until this very moment when he heard from God.‘’ It is time to move on.’’ What we hear is as important as how we hear. And what we see, picture and read become part of what we become. The answer of that achievement of your new year resolutions/ goals, demands or desires of life, is to let go off the grift and regret and lost of the past.
It has been a year of spreading and moving forward… Many of us overcome, won victories, celebrated our achievement, married, bought and built houses, influence others positively, many became parents, some others gained admission into the tertiary institute and more to mention. Knowing it worth appreciating God for a more beautiful time in 2017 entering 2018 and the years ahead.
2017 is about folding up it calendar coming into 2018 another year we have long waited for. And some could still not believe the year it coming to an end.
I was reading through a page social media, and I read someone said ” he can’t believe the year has come to an end just like that”. Some are still trying to figure what they achieved.
Well, never be downcast wallowing on what didn’t become. For 2018 would be your year! maybe of not 2018, 2019 or the upper year.
When we plan our live, taking steps it enables God to come into it, helping us improving the standard of our lives.

The days of our years are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty years; Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow, For it passes quickly, and we fly away. Who knows the power of your anger, Your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
So teach us to number our days,that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Relent, Yahweh! How long? Have compassion on your servants! Satisfy us in the morning with your loving kindness, That we may rejoice and be glad all our days.
Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, For as many years as we have seen evil. Let your work appear to your servants; Your glory to their children. Let the favor of the Lord our God be on us; Establish the work of our hands for us; Yes, establish the work of our hands (Psalms 90:12-17).
It is important we use our time wisely.
The man who is alive has no reason never to plan. Plans enable us to move ahead not touring around one circumstance. Now try looking all what you have gotten on past years.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
