A whole new calendar filled with empty days not yet to be lived. Like a new notebook waiting for its pages to be filled… How will your story be written for 2018?
Have you made your plans? Have you listed your goals and expectations, your New Years Resolutions?
As you walk into this new year, this new season of life, take a moment and hear the Father. Hear His words to you…
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10 (KJV)
Did you see that? Let it sink in… you are His workmanship. His masterpiece. His beautiful creation. With all your broken pieces and rough edges and messed-up-ness. You… beautiful, magnificent, and wonderful you… YOU are His masterpiece.
He doesn’t see you as you are, or how you feel, or how you wish to be. He doesn’t see all the things you can’t seem to get right, or wish you could be, or where you have failed. He sees His beautiful creation.
Sit at His feet and let Him love you… because He does… He loves you, sweet friend. And nothing will ever change that.
And ask Him about His plans for you… the plans He made for you from the beginning. Ask what He would have you to do, what He would have you to be, where He would have you to go. And listen… listen to hear his plans.
Then live your next year in that. Go through all of your yet-to-be-filled days walking in His plan for you… in His sweet and wonderful and beautiful plan.
