So, it's day 2 of 2014... How are you doing on your "New Year's Resolutions"? How's it going with your OneWord365? Do you need a do-over already?
The good news is His mercies are new Every Morning ... not just the first of the year!!
Because my word for the year... it's "Quiet" (and I have a blog post brewing about it) and on January 1, I yelled at my kids, spent too much time on social media, and didn't even crack open my Bible. Wasn't that a stellar start!?
"@parresia: Thankful that HIS mercies are new this morning, just like they were yesterday and will be tomorrow. God doesn't run on my calendar."
I tweeted this first thing in the morning, but I pondered it all day... especially right after I banned my girls to their bedroom because they were driving me crazy!!
So today, on yet another snow day, which has delayed this post from being finished and published, I will remember that His compassions fail not, His mercies are new every morning and He is always faithful... "therefore, I will hope in him."
Can I encourage you to remember that one day does not a person make. If you messed up already (and you will), there is grace; and there are second and third chances... And together, God and I, God and you... we will make 2014 all it is meant to be. Because it's just a date on a calendar and God doesn't need a calendar (especially MY calendar).
