Bible Verse: 1 Peter 1:6-9

“So be truly glad. There is wonderful joy ahead, even though you must endure many trials for a little while. These trials will show that your faith is genuine. It is being tested as fire tests and purifies gold—though your faith is far more precious than mere gold. So when your faith remains strong through many trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day when Jesus Christ is revealed to the whole world.You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. The reward for trusting him will be the salvation of your souls.”

Philippians 4:6-7

"Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus."

Reflect and Respond:

Between the hardships of this past year, what glimpses of joy did you see? What blessings did you receive? How did you grow?


Heavenly Father, through all the ups and downs of the past, You have been with me to guard, guide and grow my faith. Today as I think of Your many blessings, I ask that You would fill me with Your joy, and continue to teach me Your ways over the next year. Amen.

Lord, as we come to the end of another year, I am so blessed with the many moments of joy from you. As a new year beckons and new issues surface, please help me always to remember Your great love for me and the many times you helped me in the past through Your perfect love for me, especially in the hard times when I thought I was alone. I know You are there always to carry me through. Thank You!
Thank you for sharing I need to hear this today thank you Lord for your promise your insurance in your love for us in forever

Lessons learned for me: GOD should be first each day. Matthew 6:33 Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and HIS Righteous and ALL things will be added into me. GOD said to be a witness for HIM. Showing love and kindness to people when hard times hit gives them HOPE things will get better. A person who wins souls are wise. Eternal Life is the greatest Miracle. AND ALL these material things that we work so hard to achieve doesn't have the value that I thought. People and family are far more important. What does it profit a man to gain the world and loose his soul. GOD first, Family second and Career third. AMEN

Thanks You for blessing us more abundantly than we could ever ask or imagine. We rejoice and glorify Your name, as we ask You to fill us with Your shalom peace. In Jesus' name. Amen!
Perfect for this time in my life.
Help me Lord to trust you more in these difficult situations. Protect our country, Lord. Help us to lead the lost to you Father.
