Starting From Scratch

A new year brings into focus the endless opportunities we have for growth, development and change. Ecclesiastes 3:1 reminds us, to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven.

Regardless of the activities we undertake in 2017, we do not have to start from scratch when we include God.

Therefore, in 2017:

Go ahead and do the mundane; but, necessary tasks of our lives.
Go ahead and gather the courage; and all the things necessary to follow your dreams.
Go ahead and have a life of love, laughter, and significance.

However, whatever you do, don’t start from scratch. Take God with you!
