It has been said that “The good or evil of things is better known by their end rather than by their beginning”
I sincerely agree with the above statement. For instance to start the year badly doesn’t mean it will turn out disatrous, and to start well does not mean it will turn out the way we plan to expect it to.
The key is not in the starting, but persevering to the end, whilst going and growing through the process. It would be a waste of 12 months if we learnt nothing through our persevere; active, yet quietly waiting stance; bearing all the hardships inconveniences and even huge successes, as we wait to see what the next chapter holds.
However, because the one who knows the end from the beginning is our Father, He has in this mercy helped us through the year, teaching and dispensing wisdom to us along the way. We are grateful that we made it to the end of 2017 and by God’s grace we will make it through 2018 and many more years to come.
So today, with hearts full of joy and gratitude we say THANK YOU LORD for seeing us through this year. Thank you for helping us to make it through all the highs and lows. We are grateful, not only for the journey, but the process which has brought about wisdom, insight, growth, birthed Friendship, purpose and an absolute and resolute focus and dependency on you!
We did not understand some things we were going through at that time, but looking back now, we know we had to go through to get through and for your name to be glorified.
Father, we pray that our gratitude is accepted in your presence in Jesus name. Amen!!
Now, over to you dear readers, WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL TO GOD FOR TODAY?
