Opportunity

 Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for.....

 

The "rules":
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..


This weeks topic is OPPORTUNITY!

GO!
It's a new year, a fresh start, an opportunity to begin again. 

This week I've been thinking a lot about this.  I've been contemplating the ultimate opportunity that we've been given in Jesus. His death and resurrection give us a fresh start in Him. We have an opportunity to begin again. We are forgiven and washed clean of our sins. So this new year, I am thankful for Jesus and the opportunity that He has given us. 

What a wonderful gift! The chance to start over, a new life in Christ. 

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
                                                                                                              2 Corinthians 5:17

My prayer for this year is that we grab hold of the opportunity that we've been given in Christ and take full advantage of the gift of a new life.
