Father, thank you for seeing me through 2012, all of the challenges and triumphs that you brought me through only serve to make me stronger and build me into the person that you designed for me to be. I thank you because when I was down, you brought me up. I felt like David many times through this year, crying out to you in my despair but knowing who you are and continually declaring my faith and trust in you. I also thank you for the times when everything was smooth because I know that it is only by your grace that everything is well.
I thank you for my family, especially my husband and children. They can be a challenge at times, but you always give me what I need so that I can care for and love them. Life is not always a bowl of cherries but we get through things together.
I thank you for this coming year. I know that you know what’s best for me because your word says that you know the plans that have for me, plans to give me a hope and a future (Jer. 29:11). Because of this I can and will continue to trust you in 2013. Thank you Lord.
