It’s the first day of a new year!
I say goodbye to the old and hello to the new!
I am grateful for the windows of opportunity opened in the past year–
But, I don’t want to spend my time looking backward–
Gazing at what was…
Glancing over my shoulder at what could have been.
Today I choose to look ahead.
I look through panes of promised hope,
And I see there are good things on the horizon.
The view is not completely clear
However, the One who leads offers assurance that if I follow Him it can be a year:
To be propelled to a new strength!
Those whose strength is in the Lord: They go from strength to strength, (Psalm 84:7 NIV)
To reflect a new glory!
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
are changed into the same image from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord.
(2 Corinthians 3:18 KJV)
It’s a brand new year!
It’s a brand new window of opportunity!
