Cheers to 2018!
Happy New Year!
I pray you have the most incredible 2018!
I want to share a few verses with you as we begin this new year.
I hope 2017 was filled with so many happy memories. But if this last year was exceptionally difficult let me encourage you with these words straight from God. This is what He is saying to you right now for 2018. I cannot tell you how many times these verses have comforted me. How they have strengthened me and watered my dry heart in the past.
Do not remember the former things; neither consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you see it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:18-19
Our minds love to play a trick on us. We believe that staying mad at stuff we can’t change somehow gives us control. We think that if we stay upset, bitter and resentful we are winning over our past hurt. But we’re not. All we’re doing is digging a deeper hole for our misery to sit in. I know it sounds hard to move forward from what happened, but I promise you, life will get a lot easier the moment you ask God to heal you from the hurt. Let me encourage you today to ask God to relieve you from all the burden, pain and stress of this last year and give you new joy and expectance for 2018.
God’s doing a new thing in your life. Right this very second He’s creating new blessings, new territory, and new peace for you.
Cheers to 2018! May it be amazing.
Lord // Thank you for 2017. Thank you for the good times and the bad times. Help us to let go of the things that wounded us this past year. Heal our hearts and create new joy in our souls.
