There’s something cool about starting over. God gives us a chance to recreate and redefine ourselves. Maybe that’s why health clubs are packed after New Year’s Day. As long as we’re breathing, we get a new chance to write a fresh chapter in our lives. The Bible says,
Through the LORD’S mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22, 23, NKJV).
I’m glad for new mercies for a new year… and I hope for an incredible 2009 for you.
Happy New Year.
P.S… if you’ve been following this blog, you’ll know what I mean when I say that the word “mercies” translates the Hebrew word, Hesed. God’s “heseds” are new every morning!
