As this new year comes forth...

"Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.

"See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the desert
and streams in the wasteland."
2010 is here. So look forward and make your way with God.

Dwelling on the past and those "former things" is so easy. Mistakes. Shame. Missed opportunities. Bad decisions. Failure to act. How often does it seem that life is too hard, that we can't possibly get past what has happened?

God pledges, though, that with him, we can move past the past and be secure in his pledge.

Thank God that we can move past these "former things." Watch and perceive what God plans for you in 2010. It is a new year, and God constantly opens up new ways.

Have a blessed, joyous new year.
