In the Beginning God

In the beginning God…

Genesis 1:1

Today is January 1st! Happy New Year!

We have been given a New Year. A New Day. A New Beginning – with each New Moment.

And this thought – this biblical message of grace and truth – keeps running through my head over and over again, persistently and passionately: In the beginning God…

I know deep within my spirit, with all that I am, I have been created to make these In the beginning God choices to…

Seek God first.

Listen to God first.

Trust God first.

Obey God first.

Love God first.

And I am to make these In the beginning God choices…

In the beginning of every day and every moment of life I have been given.

In the beginning of everything I do.

In the beginning of everything I say – spoken, written and cyber-spaced.

In the beginning of every interaction with every person.

In the beginning of every choice I make.

Choosing to live in the grace and truth of In the beginning God will give each of us a deeper awareness of the gift of life we have been given…and keep us in a right relational position with our Sovereign God as the Loving Authority and Sacred Author of our lives.

Choosing to live in the grace and truth of In the beginning God will fill us with the peace and power we so desperately need to live each new day – no matter what our day may bring – today and every day of this New Year!
