A Whole New Year!
It's 2011, that's a whole new year ahead of me, but what I really want to concentrate on is the fact that it's not just a new year, or a new season, month, week, day...but I have RIGHT NOW. I can take "right now", any time I want and start afresh. The key to successful living, for me, is understanding that, by God's grace, I can immediately move on from failures that happened just moments ago or a day ago etc. Yes, there are consequences from neglect and/or failure, but our heavenly Father doesn't just throw us to the scrap yard because we are too flawed. He gives us grace to bear consequences and wisdom to live triumphantly. We don't have to scrap a whole day because we overslept or woke up in a crummy mood, didn't read our Bibles first thing... The moment we realize we are living in failure, we can stop and pray; then, with the Lord's help, we can determine the best way to MOVE FORWARD successfully, from our setback or failure. I'm looking forward to TODAY!
