“Do not despair,
thinking that you cannot change
yourself after so many years.
Simply enter into the presence of Jesus
as you are and ask him to give you
a fearless heart where he can be with you. You cannot make yourself different. Jesus came to give you a
new heart, a new spirit, a new mind,
and a new body. Let him transform you
by his love and so enable you to receive his affection in your whole being.”
God bless this new year!
