This should be a good way to start the new year, right? But it is so darn hard! That is the reality. It is hard not to sit and think about what people have said or done, or what we have said or done. Whether it be good or bad.
But each day is fresh, new, an opportunity to start again, an opportunity to live and love like Jesus. It is a day to follow what God calls us to do. It is a time to be open to what will happen. It is a moment that we can praise.
So….Dear God–We pray that you will clear our hearts and minds of what has happened in the past–minutes, hours, days, months, years. We pray that you will focus our hearts and minds on what is available to us in this moment. And we pray that you will lead us to make the absolute most out of it. Thank you God for always listening, leading and loving. Amen
