A New Year! A Fresh New Beginning!
We hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas season. We did.
A brand new year is here! What shall we do with this new year, our new beginning? Now is a good time to sit down and think clearly about it. Meditate, pray or try a little self analysis. How would you like to see your life unfold this year? How will you spend your time this year? Time is so valuable. It would be a pity to waste a moment of it. Will you enjoy each day to the fullest? Will there be challenges, adversity, drama or moments of ease and happiness? Believe it or not the choices lie with each of us. We have every right to choose. We can either choose what is best for us or make mistakes. Either way we benefit from our decisions whether good or bad. So, what will it be? Where or to whom shall we go to find help, moral guidance, practical advice, and answers to the many questions we ponder every day. The answer lie within us but we must search higher, above us, to draw it to us.
There is a divine source that always has our best interest in mind. That source is a kind, loving and compassionate spiritual being. That being is God. By asking for God's help and direction, we will end up in a wonderful place. How do I know? According to these scriptures, Proverbs 3:5, 6, 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths', we will see a life full of positive ripple effects. Believing in something you cannot see takes faith and courage. But it works. Following a path that leads successfully to our destination is a very big decision but having faith is a choice. It is the only choice that can guide us safely to our desired haven if we truly want the best. Do you? Faith is based on biblical truths and the Bible is a spiritual road map that is as sure as the north star.
So there you go. Start with God. Look for him and you will find him. Pondering within you may or may not get there but if you honestly search for the best and sincerely want divine guidance, you will most certainly get where you are going. Your steps will be sure and your way will be blessed. Your wise choices will lead you to a wonderful place, spiritually and materially because the wisest thing you can ever learn is to let God be your guide.
Most of us often need help from a friend, a counselor, a GPS or road map to get us where we want to go. The same is true spiritually. We will understand and know the truth if we honestly want it. The truth sets us free. So search with all your heart for the divine path and the road ahead will surely open up for you. May we make wise decisions this coming year, and this year will be our best yet!
Happy New Year! Let's enjoy life more this year. Take our days slowly, one day at a time.
