Past Year 2011----The Year Ahead 2012
December 13, 2011 8:06pm CST
I am choosing LIFE to put this discussion under. I was debating between Christian, the Bible and LIFE. So life it is. I would like to share my daily bible devotion with you all. The subject was Reflect on the past year--Consider the year ahead. As I reflect on this past year, I see how powerfully the Father, worked in my life. While there were difficulties along the way, there was nothing I placed on the altat before God that He did not bless abundantly. Some of my blessing are my medication. I have no insurance, no prescription plans,but I got my medicine all year. I have no medical assistance, but I did get a chance to get medical treatment all year. I also get assistance with my food. And with financial support, I got all my bills paid this year. By the way I am unemployed. Not old enough to retire and that is also in the near future. My points is are there any positive reflections that you can reflect on for the past year?

I have been unemployed for more than a year. NO medical, none needed either. I have been receiving unemployment benefits, they have run out. Now many of my resumes are bearing fruit and I have had independent contracting, writing, etc. but I may be getting a job. Part time would meet the needs we have, but we shall see, there may be something full time out there for me. As you said, all my needs are met.

Hi chevee... I myself have seen this year as both good and bad. It is rather a difficult one to be honest because I never thought I would be seeing myself in a situation like what i had to go through. months or weeks after he incident, i think I am going to be really affected... not knowing what to do. I guess life does change when you find it in your heart to obey and call unto God. He is really that one person or being that is capable of pulling us to where we should be - with him, happy, worry free, selfless and full of love. I have been betrayed, I cried a river, oceans even but I guess this has come to an end... I will end it this year and i will exhaust my eyes if needed be just so I could move one with no baggages that must be left to this year. This year is good because God made me better, This year, i am like a gold, molded especially by God. I had to go through some hardships though like being put in fire before i had to be molded.

I am sorry to hear of you being betrayed. Sometime God move people out of our lives for a reason. I pray that things get better for you in 2012. And I will be waiting for your praise report. God may have something or someone better in store for you be blessed. Just wait on Him (God).

To be honest I am pleased that 2011 is over and that 2012 is here, even though I do not think that this year will be any different from the last year.I feel that it do not matter what year it is, it is almost the same as all the others.Each year is full of the same ups as well as downs in life.

I have read all the comments and I guess I don't understand faith. If we choose to believe that what is suppose to happen is - is that faith? I can not blame God for my circumstances, so I don't know if I can expect Him to fix them either. I am clearly just confused on this whole issue.

I'm so glad you have been getting some aid. This year has been tough for many reasons, but what has gotten to me most is watching my dad take care of my mother. It's bad enough to have dementia, but she's only 52 and getting worse so fast. But he got a helper this year to come in twice a week for 4 hours, and although all the lady does is babysit, that's something. And since he is trying to get more help, I'm looking to my future. Which is a big move for me. Literally. I'm scared to move 2 hours away when I've been where I'm at for 14 years. But I just want to do what God wants me to do, so I'll continue to pray about it.
