All New Years can be happy ones when you make Jesus Christ part of your daily life. Regardless of the challenges we face during the years of our lives, if Christ is with us we will ultimately prevail. Having Jesus in your life gives you the confidence to face whatever comes your way because you know Christ is with you and will always be there for you. He will give you strength, courage, joy, happiness, peace and all other needed forms of spiritual comfort to help you through each and every day and each and every year. Christ will be with you throughout your life and, when this life is over, you will be with Him throughout all eternity. Happy New Year each and every day, each and every year of your life.
