New Life in the New Year

And the Lord answered me: “Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.”—Habakkuk 2:2-3 (ESV)

WHAT DO YOU want to be? Just picture it, and put it into God’s hands. Be willing to give yourself, and there will be new life for you in this New Year. Perhaps you want to make a decision like that right now. In this moment focus on a new beginning. Begin it with God.

Our Heavenly Father, if anyone wants to be a better person but is weak, give him new strength. If anyone suffers from sorrow and heartache, may he feel great comfort. If anyone is lost and doesn’t know what to do, send the light of Your truth into his mind.
