I love the new year. I like a new month, a new week or even just a new day. I consider each of them precious gift. The bible tells us in Isaiah 43:18 -19, Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
I’m hoping that growing a more intimate relationship with the Lord is the highest on you priority list for 2016. How about beginning with a commitment to daily prayer and bible reading? Take advantage of women’s events in your church such as bible studies, retreats and fellowships. Then allow yourself to encourage and be encouraged and uplifted by other women.
No matter what this past year may have brought your way, you get to start over. And He wants you to. He wants you to look forward and move past your past. What was best for you last year may not be best this year. Take a minute and re access. Ask God for daily guidance. Then move ahead trusting the God of forgiveness and new beginnings as you never have before.
