Be blessed

Your life will be better when you do two difficult things.

1) You thank God for everything in your life, including things that you think are bad. (See Philippians 4:6.)

2) You endure trials, leading to maturity and a state where you lack nothing. (See James 1:2-4.)

God, help us to bring everything in our lives to you with thanksgiving. And help us to endure the trials that lead to blessing. Thank you for the past year, and thank you for the year ahead of us. We praise you. Amen.
