The new year makes us think of new opportunities for our lives. We flip the calendar from one year to the next and are sure that a fresh start is ours to be had. We make new year’s resolutions with great resolve only to fall back in to survival mode within a few weeks. Before long the new year looks no differently than the old year. The key of course is in the choices we make; we are the product of the sum total of the choices we make each and every day. In reality new beginnings can be had any day of the year by the grace of God. The Bible is full of stories about redemption and no one represents our theme today, Choices – A Fresh Start, better than the woman at the well. We don’t know her name but we do know her powerful story from John 4. Perhaps her story is so universal that each of us is able to put our name to her experience. Grab hold of a new future and make a fresh start this coming year with God’s help.
