There’s a quote by Aj Martinez which says, “January is the first month of a new year. It’s a time for new beginnings; to start fresh. May all His people see the Glory of the Lord and His Salvation; may they open their hearts and minds to His Ways and His Promises and be renewed.” I love how the new year is just bursting with new blessings and new possibilities! Time to leave the hurts and sorrows of the past year behind. Time to take a deep breath, and look forward to what God has in store for the future. For He is always at work taking all we experience and making something wonderful spring forth. The Lord has great plans for each of us, so we can head forth into the new year confident, hopeful, and thankful. So with a joyful heart we say goodbye to the old, and with anticipation, look to the new and amazing things God is doing!
