Depressing, no? But wait! There’s hope! I don’t have to wait for next New Year’s to roll around (346 days from now) to start with a fresh slate. My God’s mercies are “new every morning; great is His faithfulness! (Lamentations 3:23)!!! What’s great about that verse is that, not only does it give me hope for tomorrow morning, but it comes from the oh-so-sad-sounding book of Lamentations. I can lament over all the bandwagons I fall off of, and then I can rejoice in the mercies of my Great God. Not only that, but I will seek His face in the morning, seek His direction, because His directions are new every morning, too. I need to listen to His directions, thank Him for His mercy, and plow into “happening to life,” as an old friend likes to put it.
So. Go happen to life.
