1 Thessalonians 5:18

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of GOD in CHRIST JESUS for You.

We have come to the end of another year.  As you look back to the 1 January 2013, and consider what you have accomplished or achieved during the past twelve months, how would you respond?  Would you say that some months were good while others were bad; or would you say that it was an excellent year for you altogether?  How do you measure your success or what is the yardstick that you use?  Is it how much of money you made or earn, the car you drive, the house you live in?   

That’s not the way that you measure success , it's not in the things one possess, but how one follows the LORD. The LORD said to Joshua:

Josh 1:5-9

5 No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you.

6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them.

7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go.

8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS, for this is the will of GOD in CHRIST JESUS for YOU.

 Jer 29:11-13

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

3 John 2

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.

I trust that 2014 will be a year of peace and joy, good health and that you will prosper in all things in the LORD.
