End of the year reflection questions

End of the year reflection questions

Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. Thank you so much for clicking this link, I pray that you continue to enjoy the love of God in this season and forever. Amen. 2020 is around the corner, can you believe it?

It's a few days to the end of the year and I really love this time of the year. It’s time to stop, breathe and look back at the year. For me, I try not to beat myself up about goals I didn’t quite reach. It's no use crying over split milk. 

Did you make a list of things to achieve at the beginning of this year? Find your list and let’s see how much you achieved. If you didn't achieve everything as planned, don't be too hard on yourself. Be kind to you, you deserve it. Celebrate the ones you achieved no matter how big or small it is.

In a few days, people will be breaking their piggy bank and revealing how much they were able to save, perhaps too much happened this year that make you financially handicap. It's okay, next year is another opportunity to plan things out.  You’re doing better than you think.

I love the preparation leading up to the new year because I am an advocate for fresh beginnings. If you don’t like it because of one reason or another, I need you to look at it as a blank canvas. A blank canvas comes with endless possibilities. 

Psalm 90:12 (NIV) Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

Repeat after me: This is the perfect time to reflect on the past year and get ready for the new year!

Here are 15 end of the year reflection questions to help you prepare for the new year:


  1. What prayer requests were answered this year? (Count your blessings, name them one by one)
  2. What am I most proud of this year?
  3. What goals didn’t I complete this year? Why?
  4. How many souls did I win for the Kingdom of God this year?
  5. What was the favourite compliment I received this year?
  6. How did I show God’s love and grace to those around me?
  7. How did I grow this year?
  8. Where and how did God work in my life this past year?
  9. What prayer requests still need to be prayed through?
  10. How are my relationships? With my parents? With my siblings? With my friends? With my significant other?
  11. If I had to describe my year in 3 words, what would they be?
  12. Who do I need to thank for their role in my life this year? (Send them a thank you message)
  13. What was the most important lesson I learned this year?
  14. What do I deserve a pat on the back for?
  15. What single thing do I plan to do next year that will matter most in ten years? In eternity

With this information, you can think about the changes you want to make for the upcoming year.
Take time to chew over these questions. Write your answers down and find opportunities where you can share your learnings. To make this extra fun, you can share a post on Facebook, twitter on Instagram using #ReflectionswithBibilamour04.and tag me! Feel free to comment below!

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
