New year, new you!

New year, new you!

“He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” [Revelation 21:5]

Our God is a God of new things and new beginnings. His end plan is to make everything new not leaving a single thing untouched. He will one day make the heavens and earth new, but until then, He desires to make things new in our lives — if we’d only let Him.

I don’t know about you, but I love when I have the opportunity to start over and have a fresh start. There is nothing like the excitement of new beginnings. Doesn’t it make you want to pause and take in a deep breath?

Well, that’s how I’m treating the new year — a new beginning. And the best part is that 2018 is just around the corner!

Maybe 2017 was full of sweet memories and good things, but for some there are things that you definitely want to leave behind. We are all on different journeys, but I encourage you to spend these upcoming days leading up to the new year and reflect on the past year, and set some tangible goals for 2018. Spend time with the Lord and ask Him what His vision is for the year ahead.

If I could give you one bit of advice, let Jesus take ahold of your life — all of you, not just some of you. It may feel uncomfortable or a little scary at first, but I promise it will be the best decision you ever make. It doesn’t work to put a little Jesus into your life. You need to put your whole life into all that Jesus offers. There’s a huge difference, and it’s the most freeing experience!

Let 2018 not just be a new year, but a new YOU.
