My hearts desire as this year comes to a close is that all of us take some time to reflect upon what God has done for us this year. Then, I would love it if each of us would comment on at LEAST one to share with one another.
All of us have faced difficulties along the way – it is a part of life in this fallen world we live in. But, as believers in Jesus Christ; as His precious children; we have had provision and protection over us that as we reflect we can find our hearts encouraged. And, as we take the time to share our journey, it helps to strengthen not only our own faith walk, but theirs as well!
Remember these very important scriptures:
The Psalms of Ascents – examples of how the Israelite’s encouraged themselves – reminded themselves every year of ALL that the Lord had brought them through!
Revelation 12:11 – this is how we overcome!
1 Thessalonians 5:18 – we are admonished to encourage one another
Dear ones, let us share our faith – let us share our reflections of what the Lord has done in our lives this year, 2016. Then let us in the next little while do the same with our hopes, dreams and prayers for 2017. let us build one another up in the most holy faith!
I will start –
The year 2016 began for us with believing God for a new vehicle. We started thanking God for His faithfulness towards us every single day in our morning prayer/study/devotional time. We KNEW He had promised to meet all our needs, we KNEW He had never let us down, and we KNEW that we were being faithful in that which He had called us to do . . . but as the months went on, quite honestly, we did have our moments of “when, Lord? We are trusting You, but . . . ”
Then, at the end of September when we were completely without a vehicle, His provision came. It was above and beyond ANYTHING we could have ever imagined for us! His faithfulness, once again, was proven in our lives. His love is unspeakable – unfathomable – overwhelming and incomprehensible! (for the complete story, read it on our website)
Your turn . . . PLEASE hit the comment button and post one (or more) of your own. Let us have this interactive time of reflection go viral!
Blessings upon you!
