If we take the time to look at the journey we have been on thus far in our lives we will soon discover that we have had ups and downs. We have had good and bad days. We have been through a lot, but we made it to the place we are right now, because of the grace of God. We should also be able to say that through it all The Lord has done great things for us. The Lord has opened for us, and made ways for us that no one else could have done. The Lord has blessed each of us, and we should be thankful every day for all He has done in our lives. The Scripture reminds us that, the Lord has done great things for us, and whereof we are glad. I encourage you today to remember all of the great things The Lord has done for you. Remember how He has walked with you and kept you when you needed to be kept. The Lord has done great things for you; He has smiled on you and shined His light of love on your life. When others have turned their back on you, it was The Lord who was right there for you. There is no doubt that The Lord has not just done good things for you, but He has doing great things for you. Since The Lord has done and is doing great things in your life you should be glad. You may still have trials and tribulations, but you can be glad about all of the great things The Lord is doing in your life. You may have a time when you are going through a storm but you still can be glad about all of the great things The Lord has done in your life, and bless His name for them all. You can have confidence that if The Lord has done it before, He will certainly do it again in your life. I know that The Lord has done and is doing great things in my life and I am happy glad about it. Since I know He is doing great things for me I can boldly proclaim, "It's My Year to Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord I simply want to say thank you for all of the great, marvelous, wonderful, and miraculous things you have done and are doing for me. In Jesus Name Amen.
