“Truth makes a new creature, in whom old things pass away and ‘all things are become new.’ Passions, selfishness, false appetites, hatred, fear, all sensuality, yield to spirituality, and the superabundance of being is on the side of God, good.” (Science and Health, page 201)
Happy New Year! Joyfully awake to a renewed idea of yourself, one that is fresh and free. This is your identity, more true and real and right than any old and less glorious view of yourself.
God, good, prepared this day for you and placed you squarely in the middle of it. He knew that you would magnify Him magnificently. Spirit, God, is always actively working to clear away the mist of mistaken concepts and to show us our best selves, our true nature of unadulterated goodness, innocence, and love. God is forever reminding us that we are His own children.
Let God reveal the beauty of you this year. Let this day be a new beginning; not one in which you remake yourself, but one in which you yield to God’s hands, peeling away naturally and necessarily the layers of lies that are hiding your glory. Those fears, resentments, addictions, compulsions, agreed-to and accepted flaws of character and of body, are flimsy nothing when confronted with God’s superabundance—His purpose to make all things look like Him, therefore perfect, fresh, and ready for a terrific, productive, and happy new year!
