2017 is slowly fading into the dusk and on the dawn horizon is 2018.
Many of us make new year resolutions, half if any at all, we keep. I hold my hand up. In spite of this, we long for new beginnings, for great things to happen in our lives. We hope our dreams come to fruition, this time….this year. It hasn’t happened in the past, but this year it will! We have hope for the future!
But what does hope for the future mean? A new diet, new wardrobe, a new relationship, new places to visit? Nothing is wrong with any of that expect at the end of the day, it still leaves us empty and looking for what satisfies deep down….that elusive craving for something more.
The Bible talks about taking of the “old self” and putting on the “new self.” For Christians that means accepting Christ into our lives, having a new nature and living out life as God intended. There is nothing else that truly satisfies than this! I know. I’ve been down that road numerous times, making new resolutions each new year, filling my life with the things that I thought would satisfy and coming up empty time and time again!
Let this year be a different year, a different new year resolution. Let it truly be a new beginning with Christ in your life. Try it and you’ll see, you won’t be craving for anything else once you’ve found Him.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL MY READERS
