DIARY: November to Remember (2019)

Consider what God has brought you through in the past. In spite of your current circumstances, how can that give you hope for the future?

November 2019


One of the most amazing things I can say about God is this: He is faithful. He stays closer than a brother, His mercy is new every morning, and He never leaves us alone or forsakes us in the dark times.

Sometimes in order to look forward we have to look back. We have to see God's track record in our lives to be assured of our future. This is me keeping track of God's faithfulness in my life.

Welcome to December!

If you are like me who is keen on keeping track of life's happenings, try writing one or two sentences per day. It can be electrifying. I've been doing this for years now.

Take a moment. Stop and remember the times God clearly provided for you in ways that only He could; ways both big and small. Meditate on God's faithfulness. If He did it before, He can do it again.

The first shocker for me about November 2019 is that Kachi is a great and vital part of my life now. It was harrrrrd to record the highlights of each day without him because every day starts and ends with marrying him.

 “The unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings.” 
– Henry Ward Beecher

“But the person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed. The Lord will show him that he can be trusted.”
—  Jeremiah 17:7, NCV

Stay inspired.
Stay positive.
Stay beautiful.


What's your plan for having the best of this Christmas season?
