A Fresh Start

IMG_0160Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2

We have entered the eighth month of the year.  The number eight signifies new beginnings. I am thankful that even though it is near the end of summer, we can experience a fresh start.   I need a fresh start with a renewed mind and spirit.  I am so thankful that the Lord can provide a revival for my soul.  He is faithful to give me a fresh vision for my life.  It requires faith on my part.  It requires discipline on my part to adopt the daily practices that will keep me healthy and strong in Him.  Prayer, meditation, praise and living by His word are my commitments for everyday living.  I am grateful that no matter what has brought us to this day and time, we can repent to the Lord and He is faithful and just to forgive us. Repentance is a place of sharing our regret and turning in a new direction. I am thankful today for a fresh start in Him.

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I John 1:9

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! II Corinthians 5:17
