With New Year's right around the corner what a great opportunity to start our walks with a clean slate so to speak. Though Christ has already whipped the slate clean for us what better time to rededicate ourselves to Him? I’m not really big into New Years resolutions because they fall through by February (at least for me). If there are things that you regret in 2014 leave them in this year. Let’s not carry any of our addictions or strongholds into the new year. A New Year is an example of God’s grace and patience allowing us to turn over a new leaf as we turn to a new page in our calendars.
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. - Isaiah 43:18-19
I would like to encourage everyone to start a prayer Journal this year. In it write down all of your prayers and date them. Then at the end of the year you can look back and see all of the prayers that God answered in your life. When your Faith is feeling shaky you can look at all of the prayers that God answered.
Celebrate safe and sober! Have a blessed and Happy New Year!
