Hello, my beloved friends and readers! First of all, on the first day of this New Year, allow me to say Happy New Year 2017 to all of you. May God always protect us; give joy, comfort and abundant blessing to all of us.
Yesterday, my parents held a New Year eve dinner. He invited His business friends in Hong Kong. When my mom gave a speech, she delivered some encouraging and motivation words about New Year. I called her words “New Year with the Lord” This time I love to share it to all of us.
The success in this past year could be the sweetest thing that we have received in our lives. It becomes a reward of all our hard work over the years. Have fun and celebrate it sufficiently. Please don’t let ourselves be lulled to the joy of comfort. Let’s start again at work in the following days because we don’t know what tomorrow will bring, we don’t even know what the problems have to face. Let’s keep fight in faith to God.
A new year is about to unfold new opportunities to explore.
Doors will open for new experiences, New adventures with the Lord
Remember not the former things, the things of this past year,
The Lord will do new things in us, much more than we are aware
For He will make a way for us as we put our trust in Him
And He will guide our every step by His presence we have within
What God has placed within our hearts, we find we’ll be able to do
If we look for the opportunities, we’ll see the door to go through
We mustn’t let anything hold us back but rise up and take our place
And be all that God wants us to be with a fresh touch of His grace
We can achieve success in the New Year not because we are able but because there is the immense power of God that enables us to does everything well. With the Lord we can do many good things.
And the Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed.” Deuteronomy 31:8
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. (Jeremiah 29:11)
Happy New Year 2017 to all of us
