A New Kind of Day

"He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, 
and put their trust in the Lord." 
Psalm 40:3 

   Today is a day of celebrating new life. But more importantly, new life in Him. Today is my birthday. This day is a new starting point in my life. As it were, I am rededicating my life to God again.  

He has made all things new. 
I am a new creation. The old has passed away, behold all things have been made new. 

 It is not as if I have been living away from God all these years, but I feel an urge--on my birthday---to rededicate my life again to God. I want to grow more and more in my Savior. I am turning a new leaf, starting a the next chapter of my life, and there will be many trials yet to face, new challenges that must be overcome; and I do not want to do anything or go anywhere without my Abba Father guiding me all the way. 

 So Lord, this day, I rededicate my life to you. I pray with all my heart that my life will be a testimony of who You are. And that with every last breath I will strive to glorify You in all that I do. All that I am is because of You, and not what I have done. Not my will, O Lord, but Thine be done. 

Take my life and let it be, ever only all for Thee. 

Seek Him First,
