The Year In Review

-Image Courtesy of Family Photography-

I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old. (Psalm 77:11)



During the last week of December, newscasters often look back at the significant events of the past year—the triumphs and failures of prominent people, natural disasters, economic challenges, and the deaths of celebrities and leaders. The most surprising events usually receive top billing.


If you reviewed the past year of your life, what would appear on the list? Has an unexpected event caused you to question God or to more deeply experience His goodness?


Psalm 77 chronicles the lament of a person in distress who felt as if God no longer cared (vv.7-9). “Has His mercy ceased forever? Has His promise failed forevermore?” (v.8). Yet, even in anguish, the psalmist said, “I will remember the works of the Lord; surely I will remember Your wonders of old” (v.11). The result was a renewal of trust and hope: “You are the God who does wonders; You have declared Your strength among the peoples” (v.14).


As you think back over this past year, why not write down the significant events in your life. Don’t be afraid to include your difficulties and disappointments, but remember to consider all the ways God has been with you.


During every difficulty, we can always find the faithfulness of God. -David C. McCasland, Our Daily Bread

Difficulties in our lives give us the opportunity

to experience the faithfulness of God.

Personally, I can consider all of the good things and bad that happened in my life without resorting to God.

Really nice blog and good points! Take heart and trust God even when others throw their disbelief at you. Always remember that they refuse God not you.

God bless

Nice thoughts...
Life as we know it is the greatest creation on earth, living it is complex yet simple. Complexity lies in the future while simplicity lies at present. past is gone, future is unknown, but today is a gift so we call it present, live it, enjoy it.
