Steadfast Love

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.”

-- Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)

The steadfast love and faithfulness of God never stops.

Be Renewed

to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.

-- Ephesians 4:22-24

We are new creations in Christ Jesus.

New Springs Forth

“Remember not the former things,
    nor consider the things of old.
Behold, I am doing a new thing;
    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness
    and rivers in the desert.

-- Isaiah 43:18-19 (ESV)

Let go of what’s behind, and look forward with God.

Not My Plans

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

-- Jeremiah 29:11

I make plans all the time, but I chose to yield those plans to God’s plan any day of the week… and often have to remind myself of that fact.


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

-- 2 Corinthians 5:17

Happy New Year! This is a great verse to kick things off.
