It's a New Year, which means it's the perfect opportunity for a Fresh Start!
I don't know about you, but 2014 was full of challenges for us. Starting a New Year always brings a sense that it's okay to wipe the slate clean and start fresh! And that's what we intend to do in our home. It's a fresh start with a whole world of possibilities in front of us - and a God who deeply loves us.
There is a song we used to sing in church straight from scripture:
"The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases. His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning, new every morning. Great is Thy faithfulness O Lord, great is Thy faithfulness."
As I look at this picture of a person watching the sun rise on a new day, that song floods my heart and mind. Thank you Lord that your mercies are new every morning! May I live a life that brings you glory. And when I mess up or fall short, I thank you that you offer me a fresh start every morning - I don't have to wait for a new year!
May your New Year be filled with fresh starts, great opportunities, endless possibilities, and the presence of an ever faithful God!
Happy New Year!
