Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19
I love New Year’s Day. Not because of the partying and hoopla, but because it marks an end . . . and a beginning. You see, by the time I get to the end of a year, no matter how many good things have happened, I feel dragged down by all the junk that has accumulated.
Those unfulfilled expectations.
The unrealized dreams (usually because I didn’t put in the necessary work). All the people I’ve let down and who’ve let me down.
By the time December gets here, I can generally pull up enough stuff to depress an elephant. And even worse, it’s never a stretch to blame myself for ninety-nine percent of the failures. But January first gives me the opportunity to start over, hopefully a little wiser than the year before. Wiser in my work, my finances, and my relationships.
That’s what God is all about, second chances and new beginnings. He makes a way for us . . . one way or another.
