It's a New Year and usually a time when we focus on what we want to change about ourselves.  Our New Year resolutions.  I've been thinking about how grateful I am that God does not need to make them.  That as Big Ben chimes in the new year, God's love for each one of us is unchanged.  He couldn't possibly love you any more in 2018 than he did in 2017 because he already loves you with a perfect love and you can't get better than perfect!

God has good things planned for you individually and for us as a church.  No doubt we will have our battles but Jesus has already overcome the world in order to give you victory in every situation.  Let's make the goodness of our God our confession and encourage one another with testimonies of what he is doing.

How about letting some of these scriptures lead you in thankfulness and praise........

Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.

Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.

Psalm 31:1
How great is the goodness you have stored up for those who fear you. You lavish it on those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world.

He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things
