New Year 2022

It’s a new year and it is also a snow day in my town. We don’t get many snow days anymore where I live. Nice to have a big one especially since the Christmas decorations are still out.

Any who, I hope everyone had a nice week now it’s time to focus on the topic at hand.

One of the common themes of my blog is “The World vs. God”. With the new year being here the world is trying to set goals and resolutions for 2022. It’s all about how to make you better and make your life better. Many make these goals and fail quickly, leading to them having the same new goals and resolutions the following year.

I wrote before that you don’t need a new year just a new moment with God.

And that’s true, furthermore though God makes all things new and He can make you new as well. If we focus on Him, trust in Him and submit to Him than “our goals” can instead become about becoming the person God wants us to be instead of the person we want to be.

Have a Blessed Year,
Chris

PS-The blog I just wrote was directed at believers but the truth is if you’re out there reading this and our not a Christian, I want to tell you something even better than a new life from goals and resolutions.

I want to tell you about the new life and only true new life which can be found in Jesus Christ.

The truth is nothing in or on this world can truly make you a new person, you will always have your past and no matter what you do you cannot fully make up for sins and transgressions.

The only hope you have to a truly new life and new beginning is if you give your life to Jesus Christ.

He died for your sins and then rose from the dead so whoever believes in Him can have eternal life. Surrender your life and have faith in God, for it is your only way to be saved and to be truly a new person.

Scripture Reading Plan:

Monday – Isaiah 43:1-7

New Year, New Life with God

Happy New Year everyone!

It is a New Year that means for many it’s a new opportunity to change their lives. We hype this time of the year up as if it is magical but in reality many fail in their resolutions. I stopped doing New Year’s resolutions as I always failed them and it made the New Year very stressful. They’re just not for me, if they are for you then great, I wish you luck and I’ll be praying for you.

Many may mock you but it is because they’re stuck in their ways and wish they could change.

The truth is though, you all out there can be successful in change, even the ones that scoff and mock. Just because you failed in the past doesn’t mean you will fail today.

The best first step is to go to God.

With God He can make all things new. I’ve seen memes where they say, “You don’t need a new year just a Monday.”

Well with God you don’t need a new year or a Monday; you just need a new moment.

Right now everything can change for you.

My entire life has been different since I started having a relationship with God.

I have seen change in myself and others around me, I have seen miracles both small and big. When you give your life to Christ, you will see how God will take care of you.

God has taken care of my wife and I in so many ways, I wish I could list them all here today. I should be writing more about the ways God has effected my life in order to show the love of God and His wondrous works.

Well, would look at that, maybe I do have a New Year’s resolution.

But I digress.

Please pledge your life to Christ today.

If you have fallen away, recommit your life to Christ today.

Don’t just start a new year, don’t just start a new week, start your new life today.

Have a blessed week,
Chris

Here are three great Bible verses for you………….today.

13 I can do all things through [a]Christ who strengthens me.

2 Peter 3:9
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

Deuteronomy 31:6
