Another year had passed and I am sure that each one of us has had our fill of joys and hurts; unexpected blessing and faith-shattering trials. What have you learned all through 2010? Did you become a better person? Were you able to learn something out of your experiences? Is your heart hardened and now believes that God has let you down?

Everything happens for a reason. God is perfect and His plan for us is perfect too. All we need to do is trust God. It is sometimes hard to completely surrender to God's will as we tend to use our own intelligence which is human nature.

This new year, let us all try to surrender to the will of God. Let us all strive to be a better person. If someone had hurt us or has done us wrong, now is the time to forgive. Getting "even" is not an option. Putting "one over someone" is not an option too.

I have repeatedly told my children to honest in everything they do for I believe that deceit or stealing, however small they are, are still abominable in God's eyes. My girls and I tend to be overly loud when "fighting" for what we believe in. We believe that fair is fair. I have taught my children to voice out their opinion but often, this characteristic is often misunderstood as being rude and disrespectful.

Integrity and honesty are important aspect of our lives. I have repeatedly drummed into my kids that they should respect other people but not to the point where their personal values and beliefs are compromised. I have repeatedly told my children that education is important. Working hard to reach their goals is pleasing in the eyes of God and that their quest to succeed should not be at the expense of others.

I have received numerous reports that there are certain persons who are intent on ruining our reputation by spreading lies about us. There are some persons who feel that we have trodden on them all because the truth has been shielded and twisted. To these persons, let it be known that the truth will prevail in the end. However, I and my children have already gathered together in prayer to forgive those who have offended and hurt us. May the persons who we have offended and hurt find it in their hearts to forgive us too.

No one is perfect. It is only Jesus Christ, as man, who was/is perfect. In essence, this means that we all make mistakes and in the process, sin. But! God is so gracious that when we seek repentance, He forgives.

May the Lord's blessings be upon you. Jehovah Jireh! May the Lord be your great provider. Jehovah Rophi! May the Lord heal you physically, emotionally and spiritually. Jehovah Rohi! May the Lord truly be your Shepherd.

Happy New Year!
