Ringing in the NEW YEAR! ????|| Hello 2016 ☞

Here we are at the beginning of a fresh NEW YEAR!???? Looking back on 2015, I am filled with gratitude for the lessons the Lord so patiently taught me & pruning He has done in me[Jn 15:2]and now I look forward to what He will teach me all the days He gives me in 2016.[ super thankful for the family I’ve been blessed to spend 2015 with too. ;) ]My “verse of the year” has been Genesis 15:1, ☞“After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great Reward.HE is our exceedingly great Reward! This is a blessed truth that becomes more real each day He gives me here on earth and a truth that I will be able to proclaim throughout all eternity! :) Because He is my Exceedingly Great Reward, the Strength of my heart, and my Portion forever I have hope for 2016 and all eternity!! “My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.” Ps 73:26! Set you hearts on seeking[Jer 29:13], serving[Ps 100:2], fully surrendering [James 4:7] to Him for HE is your exceedingly Great Reward and will not disappoint! :)  May this next year be filled to overflowing with the goodness of our Lord & Savior.❤️

????Happy New Year!????

This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.”
Lamentations 3:21-26

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20
