We are a week into the new year… seven days of January are already on the calendar. Did you make resolutions? Set goals?
I don’t know about you, but whenever I set a new goal or make a decision to change, I start out with great enthusiasm. This is it I’m sure… I won’t give up, the change is going to happen! Rah rah, go team me!
And every time, life gets in the way of my grand plans. The unexpected happens, or I find that the challenge was harder than I anticipated. I waver, I lose confidence.
I rely so heavily on God’s Word for encouragement and guidance, and embarking on new things is no different. Have you had any challenges on your road to new beginnings this year? Take heart, and take some time to meditate on what God has to say about it.
I have put together a few scriptures to remind all of us, including me, of what God means by new beginnings. Print them out and spend some time meditating on them. Let’s embrace His Word and His version of new life! Trust me, it beats all the diets and exercise plans any of us can dream up!
