Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23⁠ ⁠

A fresh start every morning!

That’s what we get to do every morning. This is a wonderful gift. We have the ability to choose to start fresh. It is a mindset to choose new, joy, and Jesus rather than settle for comfortable, OK, and not Jesus. ⁠ ⁠fresh start mindset

Unfortunately, even those of us in Christ can find ourselves settling, but that’s not what He wants for you. ⁠

Start fresh. You can do it.⁠ ⁠ We have that choice to make every day. Let’s make the right one. When we trust in Jesus, choosing is much easier.

What an uplifting verse in a book about lamenting. That’s another gift, God’s word that renews and refreshes in every way, every day. ⁠

I love the Good News Translation — Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.⁠

You can count on it.⁠ ⁠

So, start today afresh with renewed purpose in your writing, parenting, friending, and praying.  I promise you, the more you do it, the easier it gets. I encourage you to choose a fresh start mindset until it becomes part of who you are.

Great is His faithfulness!
