happy new year!

I don’t know what’s going on in your life right now.

Things might be going really, really good.

Or not.

But here we are – the beginning of another year.

You can decide going into it if you’re going to look ahead with hope.

Remember how things got bad so quickly?

It can get good quickly, too.

Let this be a new day for you. Give it a try.

Hope.

Expect.

Wait.

beginnings.

Beginnings are good.

A new year marks a new beginning. But don’t forget that every morning we get a new start, too.

Don’t despair when resolutions have been forgotten, you’ve gotten off track, or you’ve fallen flat on your face.

Just get up and keep going.

Without fail, the sun rises every morning. This is God’s reminder to us we get to begin again.

Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.

-The Bible

Read this scripture everyday this week and allow how God thinks to be how you think!

begin again.

Every morning, without fail, the sun rises and presents us with a new day.

It’s a new year with new hope and a new beginning.

Remember, you will get off track…you will mess up…you will fall down.

But you can start all over the next day and begin again. Doesn’t the sunrise tell us that?

a new year.

There’s something about a fresh start. It’s a God thing.

The Bible encourages …

forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead.

Some things we should carry with us into the new year.

Some things we should leave behind.

What are those things we should leave behind?

Those things we cannot change.

Memories are good things. But we should always look forward with anticipation – no matter what we’re dealing with today.

If you’ve had a bad year, look ahead with hope and expectation. It’s right around the corner.

Bask in it like it’s already here.
