Bible Verses for the New Year
Here’s a list of encouraging Bible verses to begin the New Year. Take the time to reflect on the last year and meditate on the one to come. God invites us to join him in a closer relationship by letting go of the
past and moving forward in our journey. Begin the New Year with a renewed passion and commitment to live for Jesus. Let go of the past and embrace a life full of hope and new opportunities. Let God’s Word speak to your heart so you can make wise and godly decisions that will shape the next year.
