Take time this week to reflect upon God’s goodness to you throughout the past year. Consider the times of joy and happiness, praising Him for blessing you with these wonderful times in your life. Consider also the times of difficulty and suffering. Ponder the Lord’s provision for you during those tough times and give Him thanks for the grace of perseverance and for redemption. We can be certain of the Lord’s faithfulness to us in the new year to come because we have witnessed His faithfulness to us in the years past.
