This time of year is full of new beginnings for many of us...new Bible studies, new courses, new projects of all sorts. God created the seasons to give us variety in life, and each new season comes with new expectations and delights. Often, however, a few weeks into the new what- ever, we find ourselves struggling with the same issues, hang ups, and hindrances as before. Why do we respond the same way and expect a different outcome? Every new season is a new opportunity to get it right.
