Just want to dedicate my blog to such a wonderful season. Just like a new birth this is truly a time of the year when we can have a new beginning. Of course the birth I am thinking about is the birth of Jesus. It wasn't just his birth that gives us the chance for a new beginning, it was his willingness and obedience to die for us that brings us this opportunity. For that, we should be thankful. The forgiveness purchased on the cross brings us the opportunity to start a new beginning.
Likewise, a new year gives us the chance to start over and make better decisions. Just like when we go to bed overwhelmed and wake up the next day feeling like we can deal with lifes challenges, so we can have the hope of a new start with a new year. A start that allows for us to have the hope of change and the ability to cope with life in a better way.
So get out there and use both of these events to start over and start making some great decisions each day that lead to a better tomorrow.
