Thank God for the New Year

Thank God for the New Year
by Cheryl Lacey Donovan

Well, it’s that time of year again. Everyone is making resolutions and setting goals for the new year. But as Christians this is a time of reflection. I time to renew our spirit and renew our faith in God. It’s an opportinity to remind ourselves of the fact that even though we may have failed and even though we may not have achieved all the goals we set on last year. God still loves and cares for us. Because we know and love God, we can be assured that we don’t have to live in guilt and condemnation. We can freely release our past and move into our future.

As a child of the King, newness for a new year comes from letting go of the past, hungering and thirsting for a brighter future, allowing God to renew our spirit, and building on our successes while learning from our failures.

Let living under the will of God be your first resolution this year and see how your year will prosper.
