Rising Joy by Vicki Matheny
2 Corinthians 5:17 So then, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation, what is old has passed away — look, what is new has come!
What a blessing! To be made new! I do not have to be bound or held down by my past because in Christ I am new, clean, pure. There is nothing nor anyone anywhere in the world that can do for me what Christ has already done. He truly gives me a chance for a fresh start. An appropriate verse with which to start the year!
