It’s a brand new year. Everyone is excited. I don’t know what we are excited about, unless you have plans. Do you have plans? What is your plan? Is it great? Where is it going to take you?

How long has it been on the cards? When did it start? Why did you not think about it before? Where were you? What were you doing? When did you become aware you needed a plan?

You see; there are too many questions. And some cannot fit because when I start, I cannot finish. I can go on and on. And talking about plans someone in Africa plans to retire as president in 2034.

That’s too long a plan. Do you have to plan that long, really? I don’t know about you, but I don’t plan that long in my life. It sounds cantankerous to me. There are lots of what ifs. What if this happens? What if that happens? Which means Americans are right. That’s not right. You can’t plan that long. You are suppressing people’s minds. You are not making them to think. You are saying to them they are not good enough. And you appear like a dictator. You are not a god. You can’t control nature. Nature has its plans. And you have yours. We shall see what happens. I wanted to say, “We shall see who will win.” But I can’t say that, I don’t know why. Maybe it will put me at the same level as he. I don’t want to be at the same level as he. I don’t want to treat God’s people like fools.

For we are all God’s people. If you treat His children like fools, then I don’t know what are you. You must be an insidious devil. You can’t just bulldoze your plans. Your plans have to be bit by bit. They have to be baby step plans. At least you’ve got to see around a corner, and not beyond that. And for me, a five-year plan is too long.

Maybe for some it isn’t, like this iron-fisted dictator. But for me it is. Did you know that in five year’s time it would be 2021? It looks far, but it isn’t. Where will you be, then? What will you be doing? Maybe the dictator is smart after all. He knows where he is going.

But do you? You can’t leave your plans to the air. You can’t leave them to float there. Or, you can’t leave them to anyone. You’ve got to take charge of your life. You’ve got to know where you are going. And you’ve got to know how you are going to get there. Anyone who doesn’t know doesn’t care about himself. At least the dictator does.

He knows where he’s going. Even if it’s that far, he does. You should too. Stay positive.
