2012 : A New Beginning
Everyone has a beginning. And, the good news is, you can begin again! If you like to start 2012 afresh, I believe it’s important that you consider this year as a God-ordained new beginning for you.
In fact, it is God’s desire that all of us should have and enjoy new beginnings. See this beautiful statement in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NLT) “…anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
It doesn’t matter what you did or didn’t do in 2011. You can begin again!
It doesn’t matter what you are or what you aren’t. You can begin again!
It doesn’t matter what you have or what you lack. You can begin again!
Don’t think, “It’s just another year”. No. It’s not.
It’s a New Year for a new beginning – new plans, new resources, new accomplishments.
You may have had dreams and desires in the past which you left somewhere along the journey because of negative experiences. I believe it’s time that you prayerfully re-dig the pit and once again pull out those dreams. Bring them along with your whole life into the hands of the Savior. He will do a fresh work in you.
So, remember: 2012 is a new beginning! What else comes to your mind when you think about 2012 as a new beginning for you? Add your thoughts below in the comments section.
