Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (ESV)
Wishing you the happiest New Year’s Day!
May you feel peace in knowing that you are a new creation in Christ, that He will renew your heart and offer fresh mercies every day. May you resist the temptation to give into the pressures to fill up a blank calendar with lofty resolutions. May you remember that you are more than any goal met, any resolution kept, any to-do list checked. You are loved, just as you are.
Happy New Year (and new decade), friends!

Always thankful for a new start. 2020 is not only a new year but a new decade. I don’t believe in resolutions. You make them & shortly into January or February they are broken. We believe in making changes in our lives. With God’s help we plan to make some alterations in our day to day living. We already started some yesterday. One big transformation I want to make is try & pray more. Each day take a few minutes & pray over my prayer lists. Used to do this but got out of the habit. God please help me to pray more & fervently for friends & family.
Praying everyone has a great New Years day!
Great point. More prayer is always better no matter who you are. But I want to claim one Bible promise a day this yearl just haven’t decided which one yet today. HAPPY NEW YEAR MY DEAR SISTERS IN CHRIST
Beth, Good insight and a reminder that if we made prayer a priority our lives and those around us would be impacted by His plan and purposes. May we enter 2020 following His lead.
2020, may the lord bless this year for me , help me move forward, not live in the past . I want to read the word much more. Lord i love you❤️

Happy New Year. May we all be thank full to Jesus. That we are alive to see another New Year in. That God woke us up to enjoy another day in his beautiful world. Give God thanks for everyday he wakes up to enjoy another day. No matter what we go through. Especially if we have clothes on backs shoes on our feet a bed to sleep in a roof over or heads. As there are people in our world today who don’t have these things. So lets thank God more. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxx

Hi, I want to pray daily and get back into the Word of God more. Watching the Rose Bowl Parade. The floats are beautiful and the bands/marching and singing are so talented. All have worked very hard day to day for all 2019 and longer for this one day. To show the beautiful spirit of the Lord takes a lot of time praying and being in the Word of God. Then people easily notice that you have a relationship with God.
