2010 is almost over...

Note: This article is originally posted on my WordPress blog.

I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that 2010 is about to end. I don’t want it to end yet. There are so many things on my to-do list for this year that hasn’t been done yet. Some wishes for this year weren’t granted yet. I’m keeping my faith soar up high and am still believing on God to make them happen for me.

This morning I cried so hard for the “dreams on 2010″ I’m about to lost. I’ve held on them so long and so tight that I can’t imagine myself letting those dreams go… I’m beginning to feel the panic of loosing them forever as I watch the clock ticks and moves every second. I’m loosing the fight. I’m so desperate that I want to add few more days, weeks or perhaps months on this year so I can still have the hope of making my “dreams on 2010″ real. For as the year-end is getting near, my hopes for the dream are vanishing… Little by little, they’re becoming a mist that’s about to fade.

And then the fact hit me! It’s New Year again!!!

New year means – new hopes, new dreams, new goals, new plans, new blessings…. Everything is going to be new again. And I am about to start a NEW life for 2011!!! Owwww!!! Isn’t it wonderful? God reminded me that my shattered dreams in 2010 are  my renewed hopes for 2011. So even if I wasn’t able to get them this year, God is giving me a gift of another year to hope, dream, enjoy, love and live for.

Sometimes it’s hard to see the good things when you’re perspective is focused on the negative part. But when you try to expand your vision and view the whole picture of life, you’ll be amazed by the wonderful things God has blessed you to have and how those blessings out-match the negative things that has happened to you.

If we can only start on being thankful for every thing that’s happened and been given to us, we’re opening the doors for more blessings to shower us. God loves to hear our grateful praise being offered unto Him and it allows Him to know how much we love being loved by Him.

So, instead of keeping my eyes on the desperation, rejections, heart-brokeness, broken dreams and hopes , struggles and risky challenges this year has brought me, I’m looking on that “blessed hope” God has gifted me with. How can I say my life is a mess when my God has always been so faithful to me?!

And so, as I end my rantings, I began counting my blessings. As I go on the countless list, my smile is getting bigger on each. I feel so blessed I couldn’t smile any bigger!!! My Jesus has been there for me – He kept me strong and has developed me on becoming a better person, better than ever! I’m so thankful that I was born to a family who believes in God. I know for sure how life can be meaningless without HIM!

I love you, Jesus! Now… I am soooo ready for 2011 and very much excited to see what God has in store for me. Can’t wait!!! Bring on the NEW YEAR!!!
