Rejoice : Great Happy New year 2006!
Rejoice My Friends PHI 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
God's greeting, is to rejoice in life. God's wish is, "You shall rejoice, you shall be happy," as scripture repeatedly says.
PSA 126:5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
As you face a new year, God has a plan for your life.Praise God. He has plans for each of us and guides our days and steps. Here are some great verses to support that:
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and He delighteth in his way." (Psalm 37:23)
"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them." (Ephesians2:10).
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." (Jeremiah29:11)
"I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye." (Psalm 32:8)
God is intensely interested in you. You are special to Him. He wants you to be happy and fulfilled.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace...that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
"But now thus says the Lord, who created you,...He who formed you...I have called you by name, you are mine."
It is of these that I believe the Psalmist speaks when he cries out, "Happy are those, O God, whom thou drawest nigh to dwell in thy courts." Happy are those who walk in the way of the Lord.
Let us turn this day beyond ourselves to God who calls us toward life's highest joy, as in this season we begin sending one another greetings of true happiness.May we carry it all thru the year dear friends. Have a wonderful week ~Blessings~
May God make your year a happy one!
Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain,
But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy,
But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you,
But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine,
But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant,
But by showing you when people and their causes need you most,
and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
