Out with the old..in with the new.
The end of 2012 is quickly approaching! We will be thinking of all the things we had hoped to accomplish this year. We may not have reached all our goals but we are ready to set new ones.
This is the time I like to clean out my kitchen pantry, closets, and office space. I love the look of everything neat and tidy and in it's place..a fresh start for the new year.
It got me thinking that although it is good to do that, it is not the most important, it is more important to make sure our hearts are clean and ready to face the new year. Things like letting go of past hurts, disappointments, and bitterness. And rather filling our hearts anew with love, hope, joy, and forgiveness that only God can give. A time to work through and restore relationships.
What a wonderful way to start a new year!
"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit in me." Psalm 51: 10 NIV
Wishing you all God's blessings for 2013!
