New Year Resolution – Follow Your Heart! By Brandy Lopez
Happy New Year everyone! May your dreams and endeavors come true in 2012 – may you be prosperous and may Father God find favor on you. It is a time of New Beginnings!
But first, I want to thank you all for your prayers last year as my family and I went through a difficult time in our life. We almost lost our daughter Diamond due to illness. God answered our prayers – she is doing better!
2011 was tough for many of us with financial setbacks, health problems, and other personal issues. But remember, God is always with us – no matter what. In fact, He opened my eyes to a New Beginning of real success!
So I have decided not to make a New Year resolution. Many of us make them yet never keep them. And yes, I am guilty! So I won’t make a resolution for 2012.
Instead, I will continue with what God has blessed me with as he prepared me for the New Year! God showed me that He has great plans for Latin Fusion Tv by opening wonderful opportunities.
So If you ask what I want to do and how I plan to do it, my answer is this: “I don’t have the answer, but I will “Trust in God and Walk by Faith! I will pray for patience, faith and support!” I must open my heart and soul and listen when being assured and told the truth.
I have to realize that no matter what I think or feel I should not fear or be insecure. I helped create Tejano Classic TV, then gave it a new name and created Latin Fusion TV – but I did not make it happen on my own. I had help. God helped me create and build my dreams.
But, you see, we sometimes let the enemy take over. He sneaks up on us when we are weak. I know because it happened to me in 2011. It was not a good year for me. And as the fears got deeper, I became weaker and allowed doubt to enter my life.
I felt lost like I was going in many different directions with no direction for myself or my show. The reason is it is sometimes hard for me to trust. You may understand. You give your time, share it with a kind heart and when you least expect it – a bomb hits.
My fear is that I would give it my all, make it happen and somewhere down the road - along with everything else that I love and care about – it would vanish.
I have been told many times that that’s life and that we must keep going, but it is still enough to scare anyone as it scared me. But I have to remember Psalms 118:6 “The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”
I have realized that I can be my own worst enemy when I think crazy thoughts. I have to remember that I am just me – I am a person who can make a difference IF I Trust God and not my own thoughts.
2012 will be different and with the “Eye of the Tiger,” I plan to shine and work hard for our business. I hope you do the same – no one can take that away.
I promise not to take things, or people, for granted. I will set goals, make them happen and make a difference! I will not doubt! I will make it “my priority!”
I support you in your endeavors and ask that you please continue to support me. I hope you learn from my mistakes and never give up on God’s blessings to you.
Remember to hold on to each other and never let go. Continue to smile even if it’s hard, it’s still there. The enemy will try to discourage you – but don’t give up. Do not doubt!
Finally, Thank You Michael Arellano and Independent Functions. You have taught me that “You can get what you want IF you help others get what they need!” “The Power of IF” says that IF you believe – it can be! “IF” is a big reason that LFTV is where it is today. I appreciate your support and confidence.
I may not have all the answers, or the logistics, but I will know when God puts them in my sight. LFTV will succeed as we are looking at the bigger picture. God has put that in my heart! What has he put in your heart?
So I say again: Happy New Year! Make a resolution to follow your heart!
May God Bless you and remember to “Walk by Faith and Not by Sight!” – Brandy
