Happy New Year! Or to paraphrase Psalm 118:24, This is the year the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it!
Is it possible to rejoice for the next 365 days? How can we be glad for whatever comes along? Well, we can start with what the Bible really tells us; “This is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it!”
Add verse 29, “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good: his love endures forever.”
Remembering that His love endures all things is reason to rejoice. We can fill our minds each morning with this truth and thus equip ourselves to face any problems of the day. If we do this day after day then a year of rejoicing will occur.
Keeping the Lord at the center of our lives will insure a Happy New Year!

What are your goals for the next year? Is our Lord and Savior included in them?

Good message, Nancey. I pray for more discernment and inspiration. Too often I meet people I could have told about the Lord, but only thought later that I missed my chance. I want discernment to know AT THE TIME what I could say to encourage them in Him.


Nancey, Jane, This fits right in with a sermon I heard this morning on the radio recommending 10 minutes a day this year with Jesus and how it will transform our lives. I think it will bring out the Joy of the Lord in all our circumstances and help us in those situations we seem to miss so easily.
