It is wonderful to know that you and I can make a fresh start. A fresh start is the opportunity to start all over again. It is a new beginning. With God in our lives we have the privilege and the opportunity to make a fresh start each day of our lives.
Lamentations 3:22-23 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.
Every morning of our lives His mercies are available to us afresh and everyday His faithfulness is within our grasp. We cannot exhaust His compassion and His great love for us. Look at that same scripture from the NLT (New Living Translation). NLT – ‘The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.’ I declare that a new period of time has arrived for you. Embrace it as you step into your new season.
WE ALL NEED A FRESH START
How true it is that we all need a new start. Somehow life forces us into a rut. Somehow the rut eventually dictates the direction of our lives. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth. God has more for each of us! God has got more for you, not just more of the same but more of His favour, more of His loving-kindness and more of His abundant life. Perhaps you feel like you need a fresh start? Recently we enjoyed some time on the beach. As we arrived there the beach looked like a million people had walked across it. There were just footprints as far as the eye could see. We enjoyed several hours on the beach during which time high tide came and went and as we walked back to the car I noticed that the tide had come up and transformed the beach. All the footprints were gone and the beach was smooth and clear. As we walked back making new, fresh footprints I realized that this is how it is with God. He wants to come and clear away and melt away the past ruts and give us a fresh start. In your mind’s eye, see Him coming and washing away all the past hurts, disappointments and despair and see Him preparing a new, vast, clear beach for you to explore, enjoy and discover. “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” ― L.M. Montgomery. The future begins today.
