Dear 2019,

What a year! On December 31, 2018 as I waited for the clock to strike midnight, I was so excited about fresh new year of endless possibilities. I was basking in the glow of a new year when one storm after another came upon the horizon. I have cried tears of sorrow over the loss of friends through death and disassociation. I had sleepless nights because of a letter or email that shattered my world. I have had moments where I thought that I was going to be too tired to go on BUT God was always with me. He never abandoned me. He never left me alone. He was always with me. As I look toward the finish line of 2019, I know that I will not be destroyed and I will finish 2019 in victory. 

I will always be victorious because as a child of God, that is my inheritance. I cannot be defeated because Jesus died for all things including defeat. I do not have a defeated posture but one of praise and prayer. Despite all the storms of 2019, there has been a lot of beautiful sunshine and mountaintop moments. I have seen healing and restoration first hand. I have seen God make a way out of no way in the midnight hour. I have seen answers to prayers manifest themselves publicly to glorify God. I thank God for being my everything in the valleys, mountaintop and in between moments.

As this year comes to an end, 2019 I want to put you on notice. I am going to finish this year in more peace, love, joy and more. There will be tears and moments that will try to take my breath away but I know the God that I love and serve will continue to be with me. Since God is in my corner, I know that no person, place or thing can defeat or harm me. yes, there will be missteps and failures but I know God will redeem and restore those things for him to be glorified. Thank you 2019 for all the lessons, growth, tears, victories, defeats and more. I know all things will come together and work together for my God because I love God. To God be the glory!

Love a Victorious Queen and Child of God,
