Today’s blog was inspired by Nathaniel Bassey ‘s song – Jesus Iye.

I can’t get over the song.
And how they place their hands on their head almost saying — Eiii Baba God ,..You again,..na see what you have done in my life — in a Nigerian accent.

Shout out to all my Nigerian friends out there!
I just love how brutally honest Nigerians are generally.

He has done it again ooo!!!

What has God done in your life this year??

Some have become associate professors,..some full professors,..some have gotten married,..had a baby,..and so on.

Granted,..it hasn’t been the easiest year in our history.
BUT GOD!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

One thing I always encourage myself with is this:

1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT – The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience.

And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.

So whatever you may have gone through this year,..know that God knew you could handle it.
I’m by no means belittling it.

What I may have had to endure,..you cannot and vice versa,..
BUT GOD!!!! πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

So today’s blog seeks to make us examine the past 356 days and thank God for what He has done.

Bless the Lord
Oh my soul
And all that is within me
Bless His Holy Name!

He has done great things 2x
Bless His Holy Name!

Psalm 103:1-22 ESV –

Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!

2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,

3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,

4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

6 The LORD works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.

8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

9 He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.

10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.

11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;

12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.

13 As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.

14 For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.

15 As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;

16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.

17 But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,

18 to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.

19 The LORD has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.

20 Bless the LORD, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!

21 Bless the LORD, all his hosts,
his ministers, who do his will!

22 Bless the LORD, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
Bless the LORD, O my soul!

I’ll be going on a short break,..may share old blogs from last year,..I don’t know,..let’s see what the Lord will do.

God bless you all!!!!
