Sunday Verses

devotional on God's love never fails and his mercies are new every day
Happy Sunday! It's a new year, a fresh start--does that excite you or scare you? I have seen this quote a lot in the past week: "Today is the first blank page in a 365 day book, write a good one." And while that is true, it stresses me out. What if my first page (January 1) was poorly written--a day spent putting things off and eating too much junk food and being lazy? Did I ruin the whole book? The truth is, each day we get a blank page and a new chance. With God we can't ruin the book with a bad day, a poor decision, or when we totally "screw it up". God's fresh pages never end, he is faithful with new mercies (i.e. compassion, grace, forgiveness, charity) each and every day. Be encouraged knowing that God's love never fails and that his mercy is ALWAYS fresh.

    1. That is great. It excites me too, although the next few months I struggle to stay motivated. I definitely just want to curl up, read, and rest.

  2. Thank you, Becky, for this encouragement for today! I can't wait to see what will fill our "blank" pages this year! Praying for God's direction daily!

    God bless you! Net

  3. Thanks for your weekly messages. Last year you inspired me to read the entire New Testament. On January 1st of this year I started the Old Testament. I don't know if I would have done that without you. Thank you for making a difference in my life. Happy New Year!
