The end of the year is a period of deep reflections for many – a time when we count our blessings and losses for the year; and a time when we seek for insights, revelations, wisdom, to guide us as we make new plans for the new year. Given the many troubles all over the world in 2019, many probably entered 2020 with a heavy heart.
While some would be hoping for a better 2020, others would be worried and full of anxiety. No matter the camp we belong to, it would be helpful to hear and act on the words of King Solomon in Ecclesiastes 12:6 (New King James Version): “Remember your Creator before the silver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well.”
Remember your creator before – the silver cord is loosed or the golden bowl called life is no more. Yes, life is a golden bowl handed to us to make the most off while we are here, BUT we should do so mindful of our creator every step of the way.
Yes, remember your creator before – the wheel that lowers your bucket into the water well with life sustaining grace from God, is broken.
As you work hard in 2020, with double jobs, night shifts and overtime, may the Lord bless your hustle abundantly in Jesus name, Amen!
