Day 31: The Best Day Ever


HAPPY ALMOST NEW YEAR!

Now what does that really mean?

I feel it puts so much pressure on yourself,

as it sets you up for failure.

Boy, I bet that isn't what you want to hear as

you get ready to begin

2023.

But think about it~

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Are you "HAPPY" that the NEW YEAR is about to begin?

Are you HAPPY you get to put behind 365 days and begin it all over again?

Are you HAPPY to get another 365 days to~

still lose the weight,

start the exercise program,

write a list of new goals,

and break the same habit~

Again?

And then

what happens on February 1?

Do you still say

HAPPY NEW YEAR

or

do you feel like a failure

because you weren't able to keep your NEW YEAR'S Resolutions?

Hey, I am a pro at breaking resolutions,

that is why I don't make them.

I am unable to do anything on my own.

I can make lists about what I need to do

in order to live a perfect life, and to be a perfect person,

but they are impossible to keep.

We all want a

HAPPY NEW YEAR

as no one plans for an unhappy one.

No one writes a list of resolutions to fail.

Let's rewrite our

HAPPY NEW YEAR

into

HAPPY NEW MOMENT

by

LIVING IN THE MOMENT

by

looking at each day as having

86,400 NEW BEGINNINGS,

as there are 86,400 seconds in a day

that provide the opportunity to have

A NEW BEGINNING

To Right a Wrong.

To Start Anew.

To Forgive.

To Turn the Page.

To Love.

To Laugh.

To Cry,

To _________________ (fill in the blank),

This all sounds great,

yet it is hard to do unless you

INVITE GOD

into your every SECOND

and

you are WALKING with

JESUS

in your every SECOND.

For that

is where the power lies in having

A NEW BEGINNING.

For you you never stay

the SAME

when GOD & JESUS are WALKING with you.

Because THEY turn HAPPY into JOY,

as JOY is forever and not fleeting like HAPPY!

You get to experience

A JOYFUL NEW MOMENT every SECOND!

JESUS

has to be the fuel behind my every step,

but

when I forget and wander off the path,

HE

is right there to pick me up

and put me back on the right path to begin my "NEW".

"Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.

But one thing I do:

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

I press on toward the goal to win the prize

for which GOD has called me heavenward in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 4:13-14)

So are you ready to walk into a

NEW YEAR

with its 31,536,000 NEW SECONDS

and making every SECOND an opportunity to be a

"JOYFUL NEW MOMENT"?

Tick. Tick. Tick.

Midnight is approaching.

Get ready. Get set. Go.

FOR SUCH A TIME THIS~

"Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12),

And

LIVE IN THE MOMENT

"THE WAY YOU WERE MADE"
