Today you have many thoughts of new beginnings as the new year dawns. Use this time of earthly celebration to write down the positive changes I have encouraged you to make. Don’t let it be all about how you are going to improve yourself. Honoring your body as My temple is important, but also have it be about how you are going to help others I have placed around you.
And most importantly, let it be about the steps you are going to take to draw nearer to Me. Without this step, the first two will not be fully possible.
Let the mark of this new year be a new beginning for us. Come and walk closer and closer to Me. Commit time each morning when you will pray and re-dedicate your life to Me. My heart is filled to overflowing when you come to Me in a broken and contrite spirit and I am able to fill your life with My love, and surround you with My protective armor throughout the day.
If you make this first day the start of daily committing yourself totally to Me, everything else will fall into place.
How proud I am of you, dear one.
Don’t look back, or be discouraged by the past.
Face the future with hope and joy, and the peace of knowing you are in the arms of a loving Savior Who will guide your every step.
