Why do we have to start each year with a “JANUARY”
One cool answer I’ve got was that “because we ended with December” 😀 –still in a state of “inactivity” 🙂
This could actually be a tough time to start A NEW YEAR because this requires us to do a “sudden leap” from being hibernated in vacation mode to being mobile & active.
Good thing there is “Janus”, the god of doors & gates, openings & closings from Roman mythology. He is a “two-faced god” who has the ability to turn one face to the past “in reflection” and another face intently directed towards the present “in consideration of the future”.
January, having been named after Janus, gives us the “leeway”to softly shift from “being idle” to being rekindled!”– It gives us the opportunity to examine the doors both of our past whose opportunities could accumulate to the present & could even contemplate our future.
SO, How were your doors in 2014? Was it OPEN or CLOSED? & it it was open, was it slightly or widely OPEN?
As to Janus, many doors are surely to open as the NEW YEAR posts many opportunities for us.
What doors do you envision to open in 2015?
Grab this chance to PLAN for your TIMELINE for the entire 2015 so as to install those doors where you are and will be most ready to position those doors.
Whether this year will be a promising one is all up to us!
Remember that no one will open that door for you expect for your WILL, willingness and determination to find the DIRECTION which God has destined for you.
Plan your timeline ahead so that you won’t have to plan to fail.
