Every day of our life is a new beginning, a chance to start afresh and a unique opportunity to live life purposefully. It doesn’t have to be the first day of the year to make a resolution or find a renewed drive.
Each day is a new page in the diary of our life, and with each day, we are given a renewed mind and strength, a chance to correct our mistakes and have another go at what we have failed to achieve; a chance to be a better person with a better vision for what lies ahead.
In order to seize these fresh opportunities, we need to stay away from dwelling on “what might have been” and change our focus to “what can be”, for nothing is impossible with God. Joel Osteen, a renowned American author, once said – “it doesn’t matter what your present circumstance looks like, today is a brand new day and God wants to do a new thing in your life and in your relationship with him.”
The Bible tells us that God has a plan for our lives, and regardless of our current situation, he can work through it to prosper us and give us hope and a future. Keeping in mind this promise, let’s strive forward and use the opportunity of a new day to its fullest. We cannot undo the past, but we can change the future by making right the present, by committing our plans into God’s hands.
