New You

2_corinthians_5_17----dupe--close-800x800
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”   2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV
What does God do in you through Christ? 
He creates “new” in you:
A new mentality.
A new habit.
A new hope.
A new attitude.
A new love.
A new life.
God is presently re-creating you today.
You can confidently let go of “what-ifs” and embrace the possibilities with Jesus of “what is”.
That doesn’t mean you’re perfect but that you are present and open to living new, now.
You are made new in Christ.
May you live fully in Christ today and discover the wonder of the new things He wants to do.
Are you caught in the doldrums of “what ifs”?
What “new” does God want to do in you? 

Thanks and Glory

There are two things that will keep your thinking clear and your hearts filled with God’s divine light:

giving God glory

and

giving God thanks.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. (‭Romans‬ ‭1‬:‭21‬ NIV)

When you make thanksgiving and worship a daily habit you are fortifying your spiritual life and strengthening your mental one.

It is the difference between enduring and embracing your life. And it keeps you far from slipping into apathy and backsliding.

What are you thankful for today?
