To many, New Year’s Eve is a time for a do-over. We all have things we want to change or make better in the future. In fact, every day should really be considered an opportunity to begin fresh. Why wait until we’ve gone through a whole year of disappointment, sadness, lost dreams, failed goals? Shouldn’t we just be grateful for another minute to live?
Our time on this planet is limited. We don’t know how much has been allotted to us. We have no clue to what God has arranged for our lives, but we can be sure that it is something great if it’s coming from Him.
As we look back on the past year, we may learn some valuable lessons which we will carry into the new year. Let one of them be to put our complete trust in the One who is in control of all things. Stop the pity parties. Stop the feelings of helpless and hopelessness. Stop thinking we can change the world. Lets be wrapped in the arms of the only One who can bring hope, peace and forgiveness to a lost and beleaguered world.
Forget about the past. God has. Through His Son, sin no longer can hold us. Through His wounds we are healed. Instead of looking back – look forward – to that perfect place He has prepared for us.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
