My word for 2018 is Thankful. What is your word? There is a myriad of things for which we can and should be thankful for God has blessed us richly!
"Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything!" Ephesians 5:20 Notice this verse doesn't say give thanks for merely the good things. We must also be thankful for the trials and storms as they strengthen us, build character, help us persevere, and develop hope.
"Continue to live your lives in him ... overflowing with thankfulness!" Colossians 2:5-7 God encourages us to live our lives for Him. When we are overflowing with thankfulness, our lights shine brightly for Him.
I wish each one of you, my precious readers and dear family and friends, a Happy New Year!
As we enter a new year, let us make the most of the gifts and talents God has imparted to us. May we be grateful for the multitude of blessings God has richly bestowed upon us. May we leave a positive impact on our world as we allow our lights and His love to shine brightly and boldly through us!
