It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for a New Angle! As I explained the other day, this will be the second to last one; so, let’s see how you do! 😉
The New Year can often be filled with regrets and remorse over the things of the past. Sometimes, it can be filled with so much trepidation that it might even impede you from moving beyond it. Yet, can I tell you? With God, all things are made new.
Knowing Christ and surrendering our lives to Him can give us a fresh new start. He simply washed away all sin, as if we have a brand new, clean slate. Isn’t that awesome?
Now, please understand. Committing your life to Christ doesn’t mean your relationships are instantly made perfect or that traffic ticket is somehow demolished or even that your past due bills are miraculously paid off with no effort from you. No, sometimes, the consequences to or wrong actions are still there, and we have to walk through those painful experiences still. However, as we commit our lives to Him, all of a sudden, we are not alone anymore. We don’t have to be fearful anymore, and we don’t have to dread the future or lament over the past. Our past no longer defines our future when Christ is at the center, because He now defines it.He gives us a second chance, a chance we don’t deserve, and we can’t earn. He gives us grace, meaning we have unmerited favor simply because He loves us. He shows us His mercy, not because He needs us, but because we so desperately need Him!
Now, that is something to look forward to. That is something that should make your New Years a pretty good one! 😉
We might as well make peace with the past, or it will eat us alive. Lay down those regrets. Let go of those missed opportunities, and look ahead to what is ahead.
Today is a new day. Today is a new year. We have 365 new days to approach, and that means 365 new chances to grasp. We can do this. YOU can do this.
Make the best of it. Give it your best effort, and you may not always reach perfection, but you will be further than you are today.
Happy New Year to you!
How did you do yesterday?
As I mentioned last week, this will be close to the last of the New Angles. As we close in on #100, as well as, welcome a New Year, I thought it might be good to do something new here on Fridays as well. So, stay tuned for something NEW! 😉
Happy New Year to you and yours! 🎉
It’s Friday, and that means it’s time for a another New Angle! 🎉
As I mentioned last Saturday, this will be close to the last of the New Angles. As we close in on #100 and a New Year, I thought it might be good to do something new hee on Fridays as well. So, stay tuned for something NEW! 😉
Happy (early) New Year!
How’d the guessing go yesterday?
This will be near the last of the New Angles. We are nearing 100, and we are closing in on a new year; so, I thought we might try something new in 2017. I haven’t quite decided what; so, stay tuned. 😊
By the way, Merry Christmas Eve!! 🎄 I hope you have a wonderful weekend celebrating with your family and friend! See you on Monday.
