A New Beginning

All of a sudden I looked up and it’s December 29th. Only a couple more days and it’ll be a new year. Time to make new years resoloutions. You know what they are don’t you. For most of us they are empty declarations that we will be better in the new year than we were in the last.

It’d be great if a new day on the calendar is all that it took to change my bad habits. To be honest, I’ve had them most of my life and getting rid of them takes more than a new day on the calendar.

I’m so glad that God doesn’t make me wait until a certain day of the year to get a new beginning. His word tells that His mercies are new every day.

22 Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22

Happy New Year!
