I love new beginnings, clean starts, the freshness of a brand new year! New Year's Day - January 1st, 2015. A new year, a fresh start. I love it that we can start out with a brand new year, and I also am so grateful that we can experience a taste of new each day, each morning.
The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
His mercies never cease.
Great is His faithfulness;
His mercies begin afresh each morning.
Life has been so incredibly busy for us these past few months. My blog has been quieter than ever this past month - just two posts ... indication of how busy our lives have been. And I wonder what is ahead as we continue to care for my 93 year-old father and as we help make decisions about his care. I wonder what all is ahead as the time of our 16 year-old granddaughter's kidney transplant draws near (probably within the next three months).
No one knows what a new year will bring. There will be gifts from our loving God that we will be blessed with - things we don't even dream of, beyond what we even imagine. There will be trials that we will walk through - difficult things, but all opportunities to experience His mercies, new each morning.
And I am reminded that the posture to take at the beginning of a new year is a posture of surrender. A posture of being in need of a Savior. A posture of asking for Him to do a work in our hearts. This year. Each day.
I wonder what is on your heart as this new year begins?
And I pray that this will be a year of experiencing His love and His mercy -
new for you, new for me ... each morning.
