Ezekiel 36:25-27 (TLB)
No matter what you’ve faced this year — the hard, challenging, or painful, the lovely, exciting, or beautiful — tomorrow is full of fresh mercies. Because of God’s grace and forgiveness, we are offered a new heart and a new spirit. When we accept the gift of a new year and a new life in Christ, God promises to give us a heart that is once again soft and a spirit that is open to His guiding.
As we close out this year, reflecting on all that has happened in the past 365 days, all the ways we’ve grown and struggled and loved and learned, let’s remember that a new day is coming. God will give us a new heart — as well as a new year!
Happy last day of 2020, friends!Leave a Comment

Lamentations 3:22-23 22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Mercy is defined as forgiveness toward someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm. God could easily punish us for our sins. Yet He loves us enough to forgive us each & every time we ask in repentance. 2020 will be a year to remember for many. It was so topsy turvy I liken it to a roller coaster. Each day presented new challenges. Jesus warned His disciples to Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!” He understands how easy it is to fall into temptation. Let’s keep watch this year & thank God for His new mercies daily.
