Thought For The Week - A Fresh Start.
Have you ever wished you could go back in time and start all over again? When you look back on things in your life, maybe you have regrets and wish you had done things differently, or made different choices, or taken the opportunity to not pass over the chances you have had. The reality is that we can never go back in time, but the good news is – that we can start all over again. When I get up each day I thank God for the new day and all that it holds. A new day – a new start every day. That is the way it is with the Christian life a Loving God who wants to give us a new start, and we can all have this because of what Jesus achieved on the cross. By turning to him and asking for that new start with Him "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23 We can be confident that God’s mercies never end. They are never based on how good we are, but only on His love for us. Each new day is a gift we are given, to start afresh.
A Prayer Thank you Lord, that each day is new with a chance for a fresh start. That yesterday is gone along with the mistakes or regrets I had in it. Thank you for today with its new opportunities, help me to make the most of it and be the person you want me to be. Amen
