​The Day is finally here and by this time tomorrow we shall all be in 2017. There is nothing that I will write this morning that I have not written before so I want to leave you with these beautiful and inspiring Scriptures to end 2016 and begin 2017.
For this is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. *(Psalm 118:24)*
So my brothers and sisters, let’s not consider ourselves to have attained this; instead let’s be single-minded, forgetting the things that are in 2016 and reaching out for the things that are in 2017 and beyond. With this goal in mind, let’s  strive toward the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. *(Philippians 3:13-14)*
Therefore I exhort you, my brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies in 2017 as a sacrifice – alive, holy, and pleasing to God – which is your reasonable service. Do not be conformed to this present world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may test and approve what is the will of God – what is good and well-pleasing and perfect. *(Romans 12:1-2)*
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. By his mercies we have been kept from complete destruction. I say to myself, “The LORD is my inheritance; therefore, I will hope in him in 2017. *(Lamentations 3:22-24)*
Even though we fall seventy times seventy times, we rise again. *(Proverbs 24:16)*
For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope in 2017. *(Jeremiah 29:11)*
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come *(2 Corinthians 5:17)*
Create in us a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within us. *(Psalm 51:10)* For You promised to give us a new  heart, and a new spirit in 2017.  *(Ezekiel 36:26)*
Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he did for me in 2016 and what He will do for me in 2017. *(Psalm 103:2)*
Let’s trust in the Lord with all our heart, and not to lean on our own understanding. Let’s acknowledge him in all our ways, and he will make our paths straight in 2017. *(Proverbs 3:5-6)*
I give you thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart. I bow down toward your holy temple and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. *(Psalm 138:1-2)*
I can do everything through Christ  who gives me strength. *(Philippians 4:13)*
Many are the plans in our mind, but it is the God’s purpose that will be established in our lives in 2017. *(Proverbs 19:21)*
Let’s commit our work to the Lord, and our plans will be established in 2017. *(Proverbs 16:3)*
May God grant us our heart’s desire and fulfill all our plans for 2017 in Jesus name. Amen *(Psalm 20:4)*
How can we repay the LORD for all his goodness to us? *(Psalm 116:12)* God is faithful, by whom we were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. *(1 Corinthians 1:9)*
Finally, my brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable; if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things in 2017. *(Philippians 4:8)*
In 2017, let’s hold unwavingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. *(Hebrews 10:23)*
God has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. *(Ecclesiastes 3:11)*
Let’s be thankful to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. *(1 Corinthians 15:57)*
And we know that all things work together for good, for those who love God and are called according to his purpose. *(Romans 8:28)*
Surely God’s goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives, and we shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever and ever. Amen. *(Psalm 23:6)*
I hope and pray that these 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻 have been a blessing to you and your family in 2016 and would be in 2017 to you and your family.

Good morning and have an awesomely blessed, peaceful, joyful and rewarding  2017. 
Happy New Year
