Isaiah 43:18-19
"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." ESV
It is sometimes good to reflect back over the past year to take inventory of our successes and failures. But we don't have to dwell on things that went wrong or allow things to keep us lodged in guilt and remorse. If we dedicate our lives, just as they are, to the Lord, He will take what we have and make a whole new adventure that will bring us into His will. There will be a way when we thought there was none. There will be hope when all was lost. There will be blessings when we couldn't see anything but gloom. Look, can you see what He is doing?
Heavenly Father, how we praise You for taking the ashes of our lives and making beauty. Help us to stop seeing our future by looking at our past and to start looking to You as You begin to unfold the wonderful things You are doing for us now and the coming year. In Jesus' name, Amen.
