A new year. A new week. A new day. A new moment.
An empty calendar. A blank page. A vacant box. A fresh possibility.
What if we embraced each of these things as occasions to pause before our sovereign Lord and ask Him for direction? Direction on the overall course of our lives, and for our minute-by-minute decisions?
What if we saw our time as the gift from God that it really is?
What if we truly appreciated each moment?
What if we recognized the new mercies and amazing grace our God pours out each morning?
What if we seized the endless opportunities that God continually presents?
What if we used our time to draw near to God and pursue all that He has in store for us?
Imagine how blessed we would be.
Let’s celebrate the New Year, commemorate each new week, step into each new day, and face each brand-new moment by placing God first and seeking His ways.
Matthew 6:33, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
