Day 1: Turn The Page


NEW day.

NEW month.

But just because it is a NEW month,

does that mean everything is going to be NEW?

Oh yes,

because I have never been

and you have never been

in this NEW second.

What if the moment you turned the calendar page

you changed?

Just picture it.

When ANXIETY comes knocking at your door

you refuse to let it in,

because you

TURN THE PAGE on ANXIETY~

 "Do not be anxious or worried about anything, but in everything [every circumstance and situation] by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, continue to make your [specific] requests known to GOD"

And before you know it you something has changed

and the something is you~

  "And the peace of GOD [that peace which reassures the heart, that peace] which transcends all understanding, [that peace which] stands guard over your hearts and

your minds in CHRIST JESUS [is yours]"

(Philippians 4:6-7).

And then as your day progresses

the unexpected visitor of

FEAR comes out of no where,

but you refuse its presence

because you have turned from FEAR by

TURNING TO JESUS~

"Peace I leave with you; My [perfect] peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [Let My perfect peace calm you in every circumstance and give you courage and strength for every challenge.]"

(John 14:27).

And then as your day progresses

SADNESS begins to wash over you

as your mind is filled with the unanswered prayer that

you want to be answered,

but instead you

 TURN THE PAGE~

"Wait for and confidently expect the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the LORD"

 (Psalm 27:14).

And then as your day progresses

BITTERNESS fills your heart,

because of a something that happened by a someone,

but you refuse to let it take over your heart

because you

TURN THE PAGE~

 "For if you forgive others their trespasses [their reckless and willful sins], your heavenly Father will also forgive you.

 But if you do not forgive others [nurturing your hurt and anger with the result that it interferes with your relationship with GOD],

then your FATHER will not forgive your trespasses"

(Matthew 6:14-15).

There it is.

Why do we TURN THE PAGE?

Because GOD doesn't want anything to

interfere with your relationship with HIMSELF.

And HE made it so,

when HE sent JESUS to our CROSS

where

 JESUS

became our

PAGE TURNER.

Today is going to be a great

NEW DAY.

Will you

TURN THE PAGE

"THE JESUS WAY"?
