New Year: New Blank Page – 2021

January 11, 2021 0 Comments

As Christians we live for God’s glory and according to his will but that does not mean that we just sit back and let life happen. We should be proactive and intentional how we live each day.

I am a collector of quotes and I ran across this a few years back by former Disney Iamgineer Marty Sklar

“Life is like a blank sheet of paper. You never know what it can be until you put something on it.” – Marty Sklar

I got a new journal for 2021. I am actually creating my very first bullet journal. It came full of blank pages and I get to decide what goes on each one.

2021 is a lot like this journal. Each day is a blank page and with prayer and careful attention we get to make our first mark.

It changes our perspective when we approach each day as new. It can be scary to make the first mark. What if I am wrong? Well, what if I am?

We need to learn from our past but we can’t let our past keep us in bondage. We have been set free in Christ so let me encourage you to approach each day as a blank page.

Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for his mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness! – Lamentations 3:22-23 (CSB)

Every day we get a gift, a chance to make our mark on our own blank page.

2020 was a difficult year and for many it was devastating. However, God is faithful and every day is a new page where we get to write our story.

Let us come with prayer and faith to write something new and fresh on the pages of our life.

2021 lays before us, let’s step out in faith and let’s make it count.

Let me know in the comments what you will be writing on the blank pages of your life this year.

I pray you are covered by the grace and peace of God and until next time, be strong and courageous.

Marty Skalr quote is from his book, Dream It! Do It!: My Half –Century Creating Disney’s Magic Kingdoms
