The first day of the year feels like a breath of fresh air. It feels like I’ve been drowning in the past year’s paperwork and sucked down deeper into the craziness of life and finally… on the this day.. this first day of a new year I can breath… I can come up from the junk that’s been weighing me down and I can take a deep breath and get my bearings on my surroundings… and start fresh. My junked up packed out planner from last year can be tossed and my new one is clean and neat… just waiting for me to jot down my ideas, plans, dreams, and goals. My file cabinet is jam packed with receipts and paperwork which can now be boxed up and placed in storage while my empty folders await the new year’s activities. It’s a New beginning.. time to start over. It’s a clean slate … just waiting to be written on.
How fitting that my bible study this morning was on forgiveness. That’s the best clean slate EVER!
But if we confess our sins to God, he can always be trusted to forgive us and take our sins away.
Put up with each other, and forgive anyone who does you wrong, just as Christ has forgiven you. 14Love is more important than anything else. It is what ties everything completely together.
Out with the old and in with the new! What will be written on my “slate” this year? I’m thinking it will be filled with prayer time, fun family activities, exercise, meal planning, singing, shenanigans with friends, worshiping God, sharing health and wellness with others, traveling, shooting matches, work, and I’m certain all of that will be slathered with love and forgiveness.
If you need a new Planner… check these out! — get one ASAP!!!
If you haven’t wiped your slate clean … it’s time. It’s time to get up out of what’s holding you back and take a deep breath of fresh air. It’s time to start over. If your past year was filled with anger, hate, unforgiveness, and yuck…. wipe it off. Whatever will be written on your slate for the future year is up to you. Choose to write positive and good stuff on your slate! Make this year AWESOME!
I hope your first day of 2016 has been great so far! May your year be filled with joy, love, laughter, and forgiveness.
Happy New Year!
