New Beginnings

What comes to mind when we think of a new beginning?

A baby? A new job? A new relationship?

Often, these “things” can bring about a myriad of feelings. Joy, fear, excitement, love, and the list goes on.

A new year often evokes thoughts of a new slate – a fresh start.

For some it could bring feelings of disappointment or guilt. Perhaps what you had set out to accomplish didn’t happen in the last year.

And yet for some, a new beginning can mean redemption. Redeeming what was lost in the year before. Letting go and being able to receive what is to come.

May the new year be redemptive one for you.

Power To Redeem: song by Lauren Daigle

You take what is
And you make it beautiful
When love floods in
We’re resorted forever more
With breath that brings the dead to life
With words that pierce the dark with light
Only by the blood are we set free.
With mercy strong to carry shame
And nail it to a tree You alone
Hold the power to redeem.
No guilt competes
With innocence crucified
No grave can hold what your grace has justified
With breath that brings the dead to life
With words that pierce the dark with light
Only by the blood are we set free.
With mercy strong to carry shame
And nail it to a tree you alone
Hold the power to redeem
Rejoice oh child of God
Lift your eyes to see
With every morning light
Again we are redeemed
Rejoice oh child of God
Lift your eyes to see
With every morning light
Again we are redeemed
With breath it brings the dead to life
With words that pierce the dark with light
Only by the blood are we set free.
With mercy strong to carry shame
And nail it to a tree you alone
Hold the power to redeem.
Oh you alone, hold the power to redeem
Oh you alone, hold the power to redeem
