I had an opportunity to write some devotions for an app over the Holidays, which is super cool. Unfortunately, since they couldn’t get the necessary paperwork to me in time they have put off me writing for them until the after the New Year (fingers crossed this does work out).
In my eagerness for this job I had already written the very short devotion for New Year’s Day. That leads to now sharing my work with you! I pray 2018 is a year of healing and hope for you, whereever you may be. This is a great time to stop, reflect and surrender anew to God’s good plan for you. I have included a morning and evening verse and short reflection. Happy New Year!
“May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”
Unsure where to start with that highly anticipated New Year’s resolution list? I propose you resolve to make your words and thoughts pleasing to Jesus. Being intentional about living our best lives with Jesus starts with our mouths and our hearts. Start your mornings reciting Psalms to keep this truth central as you go through your day to day in the New Year. There’s no better way to begin this new season than with the goal of pleasing our Lord.
God is Good
“Yet I am confident I will see the Lord’s goodness while I am here in the land of the living.”
Take heart as you embark on another year knowing that God desires to show you His goodness in this present moment. Eternity starts when we accept Jesus into our lives. We don’t have to wait for the end of our lives to know that our God is good. Pray that He opens your eyes in new ways to the beauty He provides us everyday.
