Happy New Year! Sometimes people think of the new year as a kind of new beginning. People make resolutions and set goals for the new year. But don’t forget that you don’t have to wait for New Year’s Day for a new beginning. Each day is a new day with God! May you experience His grace in your life TODAY!
“The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” (Lamentations 3:22, 23 NLT).
