Dear 2020,

Updated: Oct 21, 2021

My name is Jeanice Sherai.

I know that we just met, but I consider us friends already.

Like any relationship, I understand that there will be great times and trying times. I know we will have to grow and learn each other's languages of communication, likes/dislikes, and all sorts of things to truly get acquainted.

I'm up for the task or you?

The truth is, you really don't have a choice.

I am here.

I am here and I honestly don't have any plans of going anywhere. The great news is that I believe that because of who my Father is, you knew that I would be here. I also believe that you're already in alignment with all God has planned for me to bring forth in this year. You've already set up stops and signs along my path that will provide every single thing that I could possibly need.

You see I met 2019 previously, and she told me that she knew of you but unfortunately she wouldn't get to meet you. She let me know some things about you that I would need in order to prepare for our new friendship.

One thing she told me is that I don't have control of my life nor my destiny. Sure, I can make conscious and healthy decisions that can and will positively impact my life. I can make all the right choices. I can display the character of God and I will do my absolute best to do these things, but what 2019 made me aware of is that all the good things in the world can't stop life from happening.

So what I want to share with you as we begin is that you don't have to be timid with me. I'm okay with life happening as my Father has written. I love Him so much that I am committed to trusting the story He knew I would need to live out on this side of life.

There are a few things that I was born to do.

I was born to write. I can't tell a story without a story.

I was born to change the mindsets of every person I encounter. I can't understand the difficulty of changing your mindset if I've never had to overcome through the power of changing my perspective because literally nothing else in my life was changing.

I was born to encourage. I can't encourage others, if I've never had to spend time actually encouraging myself.

So, I want you to know that this year thats been presented to me, my friend 2020.

Is my Year of Faith and Alignment.

I refuse to resist the very things that are absolutely meant for me, even in the places where I suffer tremendously from lack of understanding.

I'm here. God brought me to this year and now that we have met, we have become newfound friends. What I want you to know is that God has given me the power within to do exceedingly and abundantly more than I could ever think or imagine (Eph. 3:20).

I plan to use that power within me to make a difference and a change in you my friend.

I'm wondering if you will partner with me?

Since I believe that this is my Year of Faith and Alignment, I also believe that God established our partnership before we even met.

He knew that we would meet this year. I'm so thankful to meet you 2020 and I can't wait to share with you all of the things I plan to do in this year. I want you to know that none of them are centered on success or accomplishment, but all of them are centered on being the person God created me to be, thriving in that place, and doing a work that aligns with the work that is needed for His Kingdom.

Before I tell you what I want us to do in this year, let me tell you more about who I am and why God sent me here....


Writer's Notes:

God says that He has given us dominion over this Earth.

That we are Royalty.

Kings and Queens of this land.

Why are we will still waiting and asking for permission to be who He sent us to Earth to be?

"The only way to accomplish that goal is to get bold enough to begin."
