7 Bible Verses to Start The New Year

So maybe your year didn’t pan out exactly as you had hoped? Sadly, mine didn’t. I penned a Christian screenplay with high hopes of finding a producer/director who would read it. There definitely is disappointment in my heart as 2019 ends with no readers so far.

I’m allowed to wallow a bit, right? Temporarily of course, because I know there’s something more important in life than an unread manuscript.

The joy of our risen Savior.

I know through Jesus all things are possible. Of course humans can’t see or know what will happen the in future, but we can, however, fully trust that what Jesus did for us in the past on the cross is eternally sufficient.

Are experiencing disappointment, frustration, anxiety, or sadness from 2019? If so, please know God is always with you. And right now–the start of a new year–is the perfect time to turn your pain over to Christ and allow Him into your life.

Blessings for your New Year.

1…PSALM 121

A song of ascents. I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

2…ISAIAH 40:30-31

Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

3…DEUTERONOMY 7:13

He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers. He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land—your grain, new wine and olive oil—the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you.

4…PROVERBS 3:5-6

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

5…1 PETER 5:6-7

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

6…2 CORINTHIANS 5:17

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

7…PHILIPPIANS 4:11-13

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Place your trust in Christ. Cast all your cares on His shoulders, and may you be fully blessed this 2020 season.
