The New Year is here! All over the world, millions counted down to a new beginning. Goals have been set and dreams revisited; regrets pushed behind and hopes pressed forward. When the clock struck midnight, it was the sound of a gun sending many on a fresh start in the race of life. Well, I am so glad that our God is kinder to us than the calendar. You may ask, "What do you mean?" Read Lamentations 3:22-23 below.
"Through the LORD's mercies,
we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness."
The word "mercies" when literally translated from the Hebrew means goodness, kindness. "Compassions," means deep love; tender affection. The verse literally means, through the Lord's goodness and kindness His deep love and tender affection are new (fresh) every morning (break of day.) Get excited. We DON'T have to wait for a fresh start. The new year, 2011, just started. If it has already not gone as forseen, with the Lord, your new year starts tomorrow.
Be blessed this new year and may every day be filled with the Lord's touch of love.
