Give thanks to the Lord and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.
Another great verse for this year. No matter what we must remember to give thanks to Him and let others know just how Great He is. I know that there are moments in our lives that that we would rather not have to go through, but we must remember that God has a purpose and plan for everything that is going on in our lives and He wants use us for His glory. Even when it doesn't seem possible, He really has it all planned for us, and remember for His Glory!
He didn't say the glory was for us! We are so self-centered, that we can't even begin to comprehend sometimes what we are going through could actually be for His glory, but it is! So embrace it, and remember He will get you through it. And when it doesn't even seem possible, remember to Thank Him for choosing you to let you go through it! I know I sound crazy, and believe me, I have been there. It's those times that we go through the trials when we grow closest to Him. Sad to say that sometimes He has to let those trials come in our lives, just so we will focus back on Him. Remember I said we are so self-centered...and we are!
So embrace the New Year, embrace the New Trials, and remember to Give Him Thanks and let others know what He has done for you!

The Lord looks down from heaven on the human race to see if there is one who is wise, one who seeks God.
All I can think about is the new year. We look back on last year and see the failures and victories that we had. All we can hope for now is that the good outweighs the bad! This would be a verse that could help keep us on track. We know that God is constantly aware of what we are doing, but when we see it before us, it is a better reminder. My prayer is that when God does look down, He sees that I am truly seeking Him.
After all it's up to me to do something about it. It got real easy to get behind on my daily verses and give them to you, and all I can do again, is keep on trying. After all when I am trying I am spending more time with my Lord & Savior. And when I am spending time with Him, I am getting to know Him better, which will only richen my life!
I want to know God more this year than last year. And my prayer is that when people come in contact with me, they can see Jesus in me.
