New Every Morning

What amazing hope seems to come to a child of God with a new year.  Another clean slate because of God's mercy.  A new calendar to make daily notes on.  A new Word of encouragement from the Lord.  A new beginning.  Eyes that have been given a fresh vision from time with the Lord in prayer and in His Word.

I am looking forward to this new year with fresh enthusiasm that has been missing for a while to be sure.  Enthusiasm that is definitely needed by all of us in my opinion because it gives us encouragement for a new day.  Enthusiasm.  I like the word.  It fits into the same word category as joy.

21  This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
22  It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24  The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25  The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26  It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
–Lamentations 3.21-26
