freshjournal_600_01There is something about new things – whether I am opening up a new journal to that first blank page or about to try a new and delicious looking recipe or putting on a new item of clothing or opening a brand new book by an author I love.

Then there are deeper new things – a new friendship with someone who seems like a kindred spirit, a new marriage, a new baby.

Such things bring a lot of positive anticipation of things to come.

And so we begin a new year: 2015. The year lies before us full of potential – there is anticipation for many as to what this year holds.

But I want to point out that God’s mercies are new every morning. New every morning! Not just on New Year’s Day.

“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases,                                                                                                         his mercies never come to an end,                                                                                                                they are new every morning,                                                                                                                                         great is your faithfulness.                                                                                                                               “The LORD is my portion” says my soul,                                                                                                                  “therefore I will hope in him.”

Each and every morning I can wake up to a new day with new mercies from God. Let’s take that into the New Year.
