“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?” Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19‬ ‭NIV

Happy new year! I know for many it has already been a difficult start, following a year of uncertainty, loss, and anxiety, and it’s not easy to look forward with any sense of expectation. But all the more reason then to press in to Jesus, to entrust our lives to God, the One who knows the end from the beginning, the One who knows the best plans for our lives! I don’t want to get stuck in the past of what was, I want to start 2021 with a clean slate, with my eyes wide open to new opportunities and possibilities. Lord, help me to let go of the former things in order to take hold of the new things. Give me eyes to see and ears to hear as I turn my attention once again to You. Speak to me, lead me and use me for Your glory, whatever this new year brings. Amen 🙏🏼😊
