I am doing a new thing!

“18 Forget the former things;
    do not dwell on the past.
  19 See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
   I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland.”

NIV Isaiah 43:18-19; KJV Isaiah 43:18-19

Read Isaiah 43

In above verses we are told not to dwell on the past; a perfect advice for the beginning of a New Year! We might have gone through trials, we might have done or said things that we are not proud of, we might have regrets and “what if” thoughts, but time can’t be turned back. So, leave the past behind and move on. This is a perfect time to start a new! Do a new thing! Lord says He is making a way in the wilderness and he is making streams in the wasteland. Turn a new leaf in the book of your life! Love yourself. Love people. Be a friend. Be supportive. Be a listener. Be a giver. Practice kindness and compassion. Don’t let anyone tell you it’s impossible. You might just be the person who will start the change in the world and the domino effect. Do a new thing! ♥

Remaining in Love

“9 As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. 10 If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.”

NIV John 15:9-11; KJV John 15:9-11

It’s all about Love my friends, Love and nothing else. Love moves, Love cares, Love appreciates, Love accomplishes. If we believe, we have the Love of the Father in us. That is a complete kind of Love. Don’t ever let it leave  you. Feed this precious Love. Be kind. Be understanding. Be truthful. Forgive. Help. Care. Laugh. Smile. Believe. LOVE. 

Read John 15
