It’s the start of a new year! Everyone is busy focusing on their new founded goals and resolutions. We all love beginning new years because it resembles a time of starting over. We all start off every year so excited to restart our lives and actually accomplish our goals. I know I am more than guilty of saying on January 1st each year, “This is my year! I will accomplish these goals and become a better me!” I’m sure y’all have said something to that effect before too. 😉
I’ve been very thoughtful lately and reflective on how I live each day. The other day it dawned on me that I wanted to refocus already, just after starting a new year with a new focus! I couldn’t help stopping to ponder why this always happens! I always seem to “fail” and need to start over. Then God placed a thought in my head; instead of the common saying New Year, New Me, He put a different saying in my mind: New Day, New Me! If there is something that you wish you could change or improve, in any area of life, why not start today!? I am challenging myself, and I am challenging y’all too, to start every single day with focusing your mind on God first. Before you jump into what you are doing throughout the day or what you need to do, pray and ask God to help you make the most out of your day. Here are some verses that I have posted in my room, so that I see them throughout the day!
“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. – Lamentations 3:22-23
“Sing to the Lord, you saints of His; praise His Holy Name. For His anger last only a moment, but his favor last a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night: but rejoicing comes in the morning.” – Psalm 30:4-5
“because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death until he appeared publicly to Israel.” – Luke 1:78-79
Today is a new day! How are you going to use it? What do you need to change? Do it today, don’t wait for tomorrow! “For tomorrow will worry about itself.” -Matthew 6:33-34
