A New Day and a New Year -by Lois Macdonald

It was the morning of a brand-new day and a brand-new year. In celebration the snow fell from heaven like confetti, gently covering those unsightly blemishes of yesterday’s sins. Sunbeams skated across the dazzling white surface spread underneath a canopy of delicate frosted-kissed branches. 

Recalling the beautiful Scripture verse, “Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” Isaiah 1:18.                                                       

A message of hope. A promise of God’s saving Grace and Salvation. Standing, on what felt like hallowed ground, swaddled in a warm blanket of fresh snow, the young woman, surrendered her heart to the Creator of all seasons. “Wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.” Psalm 51:7. Though she had made numerous New Year’s resolutions in the past and broken them without much thought, this declaration came straight from the very depths of her soul. She believed in God’s promises and wanted to begin living a life full of purpose. “…If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-18. It was the morning of a brand-new day and a brand-new year. She was born again!
