He makes all things new!
I love new beginnings! I hope that 2013 is getting off to a good start for you. For many, 2012 was a tough year – a year of struggle and pain and loss, it was also a year of growth and blessing. I for one am very glad to turn the page to a new year and a fresh start! I keep thinking at some point I’ll get it all right, but I keep failing and falling and God has to pick me back up, brush me off, steady me and get me going again. I’m just like that little toddler learning to walk, I fall and get frustrated and sometimes just want to give up. And God, our patient Heavenly Father, lovingly picks me up knowing that I am growing stronger and steadier with each step. He doesn’t expect me to take off running with record-breaking speed. No, He wants me to learn how to walk this life of faith step by step, day by day, and He is always there to catch me when I fall – as He is for you. So as we walk into this new year, may we learn to walk faithfully, knowing that He is making us new and that He will complete the good work He has begun in us. Blessings! -darla
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, the old has gone, the new has come (2 Cor. 5:17).” Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work inyou will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ (Phil. 1:6).”
