The new year is around the corner! Excitement fills our hearts, as we think about putting the past in its place and forging ahead to new beginnings.
Turning over a new leaf.
All of us love the thrill of HOPE. Life is tough, and hope carries us. The potential of positive change makes us press on towards better things.
The start of a new year is amazing. If you think about it, nothing really "magical" happens. We just flip the page on the calendar and start writing a new year on our checks.
The miracles happen within US, though.
The miracles happen as we transform our minds from thinking dull, laborious thoughts to glorious, life-filled inspirations!
As the new year approaches, may we challenge ourselves to be "new year" thinkers every moment of our lives, not just on January 1st... not just for the first month of 2013.
May the hope of Jesus Christ's good work in our lives and in this world carry us through the hard times and encourage us to keep pressing on.... to keep setting goals for ourselves and push outside the ordinary to extraordinary.
And let us not grow weary while doing good,
for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
