Another year has come and gone. I could write a long, sappy post about all the wonderful things that happened in 2015. I actually enjoy reading everyone’s year end recaps. I think I will keep it short and sweet today though, with a little reminder. As you look toward the new year ahead, remember one thing as you make your plans.
“It is of the Lord‘s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
A new year feels like a clean slate. You get a chance to start over, and do things differently. Fix problems. Start new adventures. Guess what, beloved? That feeling you have today? You get that everyday in God’s eyes. Lamentations 3:22-23 says “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” So, bottle up that feeling you have right now. Set it aside, put it on a shelf, write it down, do what you need to do to remember it. There will be days ahead that have us feeling consumed, overwhelmed, and just plain done in. Pull out this memory on those days. His compassions fail not. He does not fail those that seek Him.
I’m looking forward to what the Lord has in store for my family this year. I pray that each of you has a blessed year!
