25 Jan OUT with the old and IN with the NEW!
Out with the old and in with the new, right, or “nah,” as my kids would say! I know all too well how difficult it is to let go of old habits, old mind-sets, old cultures, old friends, old shoes and anything else that seems to be clouding your judgment. Sometimes its all about your perspective! How has this old habit, old mind-set, old culture, old friend, or even old pair of shoes affected the NEW YOU, that you so desperately desire to tap in to? Did 2016 afford you the opportunity to get to know the REAL YOU a little better than you knew you before? You see the challenges and circumstances of life can cause all of us to change our perspective! We will think different, act different, talk different based on our personal perspective.
Isn’t it wonderful to know that while it’s difficult to let go of the old, God gives us NEW mercies every morning? We didn’t have to wait until December 31st to confess that we were ending 2016 in the “out with the old and in with the new” perspective! Our heavenly Father never stopped giving us new mercies, even when we had old habits, thought with old mind-sets, practiced old cultures, listened to negativity from old friends or even too stingy to get rid of the old shoes and buy new ones.
Every attack that came against you in 2016 was not designed to kill you, it was designed to make you give up and since you’re still here, Satan didn’t win. You didn’t give up, so that means that you had the victory then and you have the victory now!
I declare and decree that 2017 is your year to be a NEW AND IMPROVED YOU! This is the year to walk into your destiny. This is the year to dream bigger than you ever have! This is the year to take the next step into being your authentic self! This is your year rise, shine and be FREE be YOU!
