A Good Way To Start The New Year

My New Year's Promise

Does anyone make New Year's resolutions anymore? In reviewing the year past, does anyone try to go back and make better the mistakes that were made? A new year should not start out with any regret, but with a motivation to have a better year. As a Christian, I know that I can trust in the Lord to help with any big decisions or with any anticipations. It is good always to pray and give thanks to God for anything that may come our way, because it is hard to determine the future. Here is a commitment that I wish to share with my readers, and maybe perhaps it can inspire others to have Hope through faith in prayer.

Starting The Year By Giving Thanks To God

This Year will be different. I will continue to stay strong in my belief in my Savior, Jesus Christ, and remember all His promises to me. I will remember to praise Him every morning. I will always ask Him for forgiveness of my sins, seen and unseen. I will not take anyone or anything for granted. I will rely on Jesus word, especially in the gospel of Matthew, in chapter 5. I will believe and trust in Him in everything.

Here is My Prayer For The New Year:

Lord God, you are a Healing God, and Jesus did miraculous healing. I know that you are the author of Time, and so I trust that you will make a way out of No Way.

I thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for healing my body.

I thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for healing my relationship with my family.

I thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for healing my Mom and Dad.

I thank you, Lord Jesus Christ, for securing my employment and keeping me out of debt.

I thank you, Lord God, my Father for His provision of a good home to live in and the fruitful possessions we bear within it.

I pray, Lord Jesus Christ, that you will come into the lives of my children in a way that they no longer resist You.

I pray, Lord God, my Father for the peace and safety of me and my loved ones each and every day.

I pray that you, Lord Jesus Christ, will order our footsteps right in order to prepare for the worst that may or may not come. Whatever happens, I trust that we will be ready.

And in the Name of Jesus, By the Power of His Holy Spirit that no Harm, Hurt, Or Danger befall upon me and my family. For I know by the Stripes of the Lord Jesus Christ, I am healed. And The Holy Spirit also protects me, in Jesus Name.

Personal Responsibilities In Faith

In order to receive Blessings from the Lord Jesus Christ, We have to be obedient, and give Him Praise and Thanksgiving. And do not forget to forgive one another. That is all He requires to be fruitful.

With Christ Jesus, ALL THINGS are possible, to those who love Him and Believe His Word. I know with this attitude and belief in this Promise, My new year will be successful. AMEN.

I love this "I know that He is the author of Time, and so I trust that He will make a way out of No Way." All I need to do is believe. "Lord I believe, help my unbelief!" Bless you dear friend! Love you!

I really need a real motivation. All I do is work, sleep, eat, and work eat sleep. I really need a blessing. Please pray for me. I am just always so tired.

Yes Twin Sis - With God all things are possible and we need to thank Him for His presence in our lives and for the blessings that He bestows upon each of us. We need to appreciate those simple things and not forget them!

Wish you a Happy New year and every success in all you do this year.

God bless and peace to you Twin Sis.
