2021 Struggles will be 2022 Successes

Have you ever wasted anything during this year? Maybe time, words or even food? In the bible, Jesus fed a crowd of five thousand with only five loaves and two fish. That day, everyone had enough to eat, and there were still twelve baskets full of bread and fish leftover—more than what they started with! We serve a God of abundance! When God provides, you will always end up with more than you started with. I love that Jesus told the disciples to collect all the leftovers “so that nothing is wasted.” With God, nothing is ever wasted. God never wastes your experience, He’ll never waste your pain, He’ll never waste your dreams, He’ll never waste even a single piece of bread. Hallelujah! 

If you felt like your year has been wasted in the wrong job, hanging around the wrong people, doing the wrong things, no goals reached and so many trials that you haven’t moved forward. Today, I assure you God will gather those seemingly wasted weeks, months and years and He’ll restore them back to you.  

He’ll take those experiences that the enemy meant for your harm and turn them around for your good. He’ll make you stronger, wiser and better off than you were before. He can launch you further into your destiny than before. You will have more than you started with.  

Be encouraged because “all things will work together for your good” because nothing is ever wasted with God! 

“After everyone was full, Jesus told His disciples, “Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted” (John 6:12, NLT). 

Let’s Pray 

Lord, I give You every bit of my life, my past, my present and my future. I thank You for taking every experience in my life and turning it around for my good. Father, I’m glad that with You nothing is ever wasted. So I give You my pain, I give You my disappointments, I give You my dreams from 2021 and look forward to these being turned into success, strength and favour in 2022. In Christ’ Name. Amen.
