Praise the Lord Sunday – New Beginnings

“The Lord is on my side.  I will not fear.”  Psalm 118:6

Praise the Lord for new beginnings.  It’s wonderful to wake up to new opportunities and challenges.  During Biblical times, people celebrated the Year of Jubulee.  In that year everyone’s slate was wiped clean no matter what you had done.  So everyone had a brand new beginning.  For example, if you were in prison, you were set free and provided a fresh start.  It could be something much smaller though.  If you were at odds with someone, the slate would wiped so that whatever happened never occurred.

Well, if you get excited about that, then I have good news for you.  Every day we have the opportunity to ask for forgiveness from God and others.  Regardless of how people react to you, if you go to God with a pure heart and ask for forgiveness, you will be forgiven.  Oh, and God doesn’t keep track of all your mistakes.  You have a clean slate to start anew.  Now, that’s good news.  Praise the Lord!  While you are talking to God, don’t forget to thank him for all your blessings.

Enjoy your day and join me in praising God!  God bless you.
