Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand. Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth. For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God. – Colossians 3:1-3
* Sigh * It’s that time of year again. We’ve rolled around to a “fresh beginning”, another “start”… almost like someone hit the reset button, for everyone but me.
Soon I’ll be seeing the ads about making a “new you”. New diets, new hairdos, new wardrobe. A fresh set of resolutions to help me be better in the coming year.
When all I want is the “old me” back. All I want is a chance at my old level of energy. I long for my old way of life. I miss the old me. She was vibrant, fun and full of life. She laughed at resolutions.
What makes us humans so eager for a do-over? We love the look of a fresh clean slate. A newly fallen snow before anyone has walked in it. We want that new beginning.
I’ve been talking with God a lot about new beginnings as the New Year approaches.
And do you know the Word I keep receiving from Him?
As I look back over my recent blogs…
As I read over blogs that are yet to be posted…
As I read blogs written by people I have never met…
In conversations with close friends and family…
The word keeps echoing in every canyon I pass through.
I hear you, Lord. I’m open. Teach me, Grow me, Lead me.
But most of all, God, in this coming year….
Never stop loving me.
Dear God, I follow YOU and You alone into this coming year. Lead me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
