If any man be in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new! (2 Corinthians 5:17)
We serve a God of second chances and new beginnings. No matter what 2017 looked like, it is over. Today you begin again. If last year was one of triumph, great—remember and rejoice,
but don’t live there.
If last year was one of failure, or pain, or loss—praise God for this new beginning.
The image in my head this morning is of the land after a snowfall, when nothing has yet touched the surface of the snow. It is fresh, clean, and waiting.
So…go make snow angels.
Happy 2018, Beloved of Christ.
