Happy New Year!
I hope that you enjoyed the holidays and are ready to face this new year with renewed hope.
Everyone needs a new beginning. After Jonah failed and ran from the call of God, we read, ‘The word of the Lord came to Jonah a second time.” Jonah 3:1 He’s a God of a second and even a third chance if you need it. Paul says, “forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto things which are before.” Philippians 3:13
As you reflect upon the past year, remembering your accomplishments...and your less than fulfilling moments...I encourage you to look to the future, set goals that fit your beliefs and “press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
You don’t need new rules. What you need is a relationship with God, so why don’t you make that your #1 goal for this year.
