5th July, 2023


Welcome to December 2023

Luke 2:10 NIV “… Good News of Great Joy…”

Beloved, it is well with every one of us in Jesus Christ mighty name. Welcome to the last month of the year.  It is so amazing we are all alive, hale and hearty.  Glory be to God almighty. 

As we wrap up 2023, reflecting on the challenges and triumphs that we have encountered across the journey of life, it’s evident that the landscape has been uncertain to many and unstable to few, but glory be to God who has been our Rock and sustenance. 

Nations have encountered uncertainties, experienced storms, tough and rough weather. Yet, there is hope for a brighter, better future in 2024. Brethren, December is the time for remembering the past and reaching forward to the future.

Of all the months of the year, there is not a month one half so welcome to the young, or so full of happy associations, as the last month of the year.  December is the twelfth and final month of the year and is also the last of seven months to have a length of 31 days.

December brings the winter; the day with the fewest daylight hours. Beloved, instead of counting your possessions and become sleepless, count your blessings and you will be asleep. If we look back from January to November, we should be thankful for the things that God has done for us.

Luke 2: 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  This is the month of ‘good news’ to the entire world. Do not dwell in fear or anxiety, everything will end well with all of us. I pray that we will encounter good news in all areas of our endeavours in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Wishing you a joyful December 2023. May the Christmas spirit be with all of us throughout the whole month and the coming years ahead. As the weather turns colder, may our hearts be warmed by thoughts of Christmas and time spent with loved ones. 

Have a glorious December and a wonderful holiday season. I pray that this last month will be a good month to all of us and bring smiles, laughterand happiness to all our families and friends.
