"Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old.19 Behold, I am doing a new thing;    now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?" Isaiah 43:19-19

This is the week of the year above all that we generally adopt an attitude of determination around those things in our lives we want to see changed. It is not just about getting fit or eating less, most of us have real things in our lives we want to see different. Attitudes, habits, fears - whatever it is, we all understand the desire to be free from old patterns.

One of the ways that we hinder moving forward is not letting go of the past. 2015 has gone. It is not coming back. All the good and the bad are now footnotes in your life story. So today you face a choice - Leave it all there or live in it still.

The Lord says leave it all. He is doing something new in you. If it was good before it will be even better than you can imagine so let it go. If it was bad, then He will heal and restore you and bring you back to a place of blessing and fullness - So let it go.

You may not see it today but this is a year of His favour & grace. Don’t miss it by holding onto that which has gone. His grace is new for you today.
