It’s hard to believe it is already the start of a new year! I always love to look ahead with goals and aspirations for improving areas of my life, which more often than not, requires an open and honest evaluation of the past year. That open and honest evaluation can sometimes be painful. It’s hard to admit our shortcomings and areas where we were not as committed or devoted as we would have liked to have been. That being said, praise God for new beginnings! As a reconciled believer in Jesus Christ, He remembers not our former sins or our past lives, His forgiveness is complete. You and I can be thankful for the completeness of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ!
