Today Reminder - 31 December 2012 (Looking back)

A reminder for today
The people blamed Moses and said, "If only we had died in the LORD's presence with our brothers! Why have you brought the congregation of the LORD's people into this wilderness to die, along with all our livestock? Why did you make us leave Egypt and bring us here to this terrible place? This land has no grain, no figs, no grapes, no pomegranates, and no water to drink!" (Numbers 20:3-5)

The end of 2012 – Looking back:

Today is the last day of 2012 and looking back one can’t help but to remember all that has happened in this year. The Israelites are blaming Moses once again for the hardships they face and have faced and they looked back at a time that seemed better, yet they have forgotten the good things God has done to bring them so far and they certainly have forgotten all they have done wrong. So the complained – again.

My dear friend, I look back at a year filled with many obstacles and many amazing things. I see God’s hand as He guided and carried us through so many difficult times and I see His mercy and love in so many miracles. This year was a good year and knowing how God stood by my side through all, I can’t wait for the year to come.

Let us look back and be thankful for all the blessings we received and let’s forget all the bad things that have happened. Let’s take the positive and use it as a foundation to start 2013. Let us take the lessons learned and apply them as we continue on our journey of life.

Thank you dear friend for reading my “Today Reminders” and following God’s Word with me as He opens it up and motivates us each day. Thank you for taking time and sharing in His wonderful messages. May your day be filled with His love and blessings as we say farewell to the old year and ask God to take us into the New Year.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.
