I love new beginnings – new notebooks with fresh new pages, new adventures, new goals, new friends, new ideas, and of course new years full of hope, promise, and possibility! As I write this, I’m sitting in a coffee shop across the street from my church listening to two new mamas talk. As they sit holding new babies, chatting about new sleep schedules, new milestones, and new discoveries I can’t ignore the excitement that newness brings and am reminded of one of God’s beautiful promises – “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV). How wonderful that we don’t have to wait for January 1st or any other special occasion or invitation to get a fresh start. We are offered a new beginning every morning and we are promised that our heavenly father is waiting with mercy and love with every sunrise. God is so good!
