Happy New Year!
2018 is finally here and I'm so excited to embrace this new adventure God is leading me on.
And you see, He's leading you to a new adventure too.
Today is the first day of a 365 day adventure that He has written just for you. It won't look like anyone else's adventure, because it's unique to you. It won't turn out just how you planned, because His plans for you are good even when things go wrong.
Today is your day one. Your brand new adventure.
But trust me when I say that you cannot enter into this new adventure if you keep holding onto your past.
Because sometimes it's so much easier to hold onto what is behind and keep your focus fixed on what is gone. It's so much easier than looking forward and embracing the uncertainty.
But God gently whispers.
"Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." (Isaiah 43:19)
He is doing a new thing. Inviting you on a new adventure.
Won't you take the chance and let go? Step into your new beginning and live this adventure? Through all the ups and downs, hills and valleys, you will see that He is carrying you. Every step of the way. Every moment of the adventure. He is with you.
Let's take His hand and start adventuring.
What are some of the things you are most excited about looking ahead at 2018? Look out for an exciting blog post on Thursday as I start off the new year with a brand new Bible study on EPHESIANS! We will be studying Ephesians every Thursday together, starting this week. I'd love to have you join in the study with me.
