“Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble” Psalms 107:1-2 ESV
If you are anything like me, the end of the year is the time where you begin to reflect on how your year has gone. You may ask yourself questions like; have I achieved all I set out to this year? If not, what were some of the barriers that were in my way? What can I do in 2019 to ensure I at least match, but hopefully supersede my successes in 2018?
Despite our answers to these questions, today’s reading reminds us of the importance of giving thanks to God. Why? Because He is good and His love endures forever!
It is my prayer, that as you reflect on 2018 and begin to prepare for the year ahead that no matter how you year has been; whether it has been good, bad or ugly, whether you’ve experienced joy or sorrow, been in the valley or at the top of the mountain... You will be reminded of the importance of giving thanks to God for He indeed is good and His steadfast love endures forever!
As you enter 2019, enter with a renewed sense hope and joy that your God is a good God who loves you with an everlasting, immovable love, which lasts forever!
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!
Happy New Year!
