"For what is a man profited if he gain the whole world and lose his own self or be cast away?" — Luke 9:25
Life is so precious that God made it eternal; it will never end. God created us eternal beings and gave us the gift of life to learn to know him. God ordained that days and years end to show us new beginnings. No matter whom you are, no matter what you have done, God starts new with you every day. He gives a brand new day and a brand new year that you may have hope. His love for you reaches new every day. Within each of us is born the hope of eternity, and God stands ready in each new day to make that hope a living reality. Man believes, and God acts. Faith is the key to the power of God.
Man can change things and circumstances, but only God can change man. The fact that you want to believe means you can believe and your believing will release the power of God into your life. A new day, a new year, to live what you believe!
