New Beginnings

GOD LOVES NEW BEGINNINGS.

One of the things I love about our faith is that our God is a God of second chances, fresh starts, and new beginnings.

In the Bible we read these epic tales of the incredible ways that God transformed people and their lives: Moses, Noah, Jonah, Jeremiah, David, Joseph, Mary, Peter, James, Matthew, Zacchaeus, Paul, Lydia, Mary Magdalene, the woman at the well, and so many others whose names we don’t know. Why not you and me? Why not now?

God is always waiting on us. Sometimes we may think we are waiting for him, but that is never true.

What’s happening in your life right now? What’s not working in your life? What great question are you grappling with in your heart? Why did you sign up for Best Lent Ever?

Do you need a fresh start too?

Whenever I get to a place in my life where things aren’t making sense, it always seems that I need to rediscover Jesus.

Jesus is the ultimate new beginning.

Focus

In what area of your life is God inviting you to experience a new beginning?

Act

Commit to making yourself available to God this Lent.

We recommend that you write this commitment down and keep it somewhere you will see it every day during Lent. (It can be as simple as, “Jesus, I am 100% available to you this Lent.”)

(It’s Ash Wednesday! Don’t forget to fast and abstain from meat today. For more information, click here.)

Pray

Jesus, help me to believe that a new beginning is possible.
