With the new year beginning and the holidays over; it's time to have a fresh start. What is a fresh start? It is the time when we put our lives back in order and reevaluate our priorities. This sounds so easy to do, until we really put some time and effort behind it. We should not just make a new year's resolution, or promises that we probably won't keep. We should seek the face of God to find out His direction for us this year. That is how we get a fresh start. So many times we try to do things our way and things still turn out wrong. With all of our trying God's way is usually our last resort. Why don't we make God first?

It's time to start all over again. Go back to the drawing board and allow the Lord to ordain our steps. The steps of a righteous man are ordered by God. Let's start with the mind. As a man thinketh so is he. Many times we work on the body and try to get our physical man in shape. What about our spiritual man? Let this mind be in you which is also in Christ Jesus. We should seek the mind of Christ. There is a secular song that says, "free your mind and the rest will follow". Oh, I know the views of many regarding secular music, but are they really wrong? I think the world understands more than the church does. We try to get everything else in order and at times never deal with our minds. Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind. It all starts in the mind. In order to get that fresh start, we must focus on this area. Anything that is not fresh is stale. I like fresh things. Fresh bread, fresh vegtables, fresh flowers, fresh donuts and yes fresh potatoe chips. Think about it; if these items are not fresh they lose their impact.

This is the 21st century and it's time for a fresh start. No more delays and putting things off. No more waiting until the last minute and never coming through. No more watching and never joining in. No more hearing and never doing. Start now! If you don't know Jesus as Lord and would like to accept Him in as your Savior; send me an email I would love to lead you to Christ. If you have been playing in the middle and holding out; come on and have a fresh start. If you know Jesus and are fully aware of who He is; then help somebody else with a fresh start.

As the First Lady and I move together in this ministry, we are looking for a fresh start. We stand together as one looking to Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith. We encourage all of you to seek His face and not his hand. Get into position and concentrate on this race, now is your time to shine. It's time for a fresh start. On your mark, get set...Go!
