I know it’s not quite Christmas yet. I’m not being a Scrooge, I’m probably the most Christmas Spirit you’ve seen since Elf. But before you know it, we’ll be ringing in the New Year surrounded by friends and family. So in efforts to keep up, and not be late -like we usually are-, we’ve put together a list of Bible verses that are sure to boost your spirits in the upcoming year!
This season is a time when we reflect on the year that has passed and prepare ourselves for another year to come. It can bring up a lot of emotions and memories, some good and some bad. But the New Year is known to be a time where we can start fresh. These Bible Verses for the New Year are a great start!
If you’ve followed our blog for a while now, then you should know that I don’t make New Year’s Resolutions. As Christians, we have the unique opportunity to change at every moment of every day. Which is why I don’t make resolutions. However, I do make realistic goals and then I plan out how to accomplish them.
By dwelling on the words of The Father and using scripture to prepare our hearts daily, we can be sure that the New Year isn’t the only time of refreshing. You can begin again today. Don’t wait another moment to choose to live through Christ’s intentions.
If you’ve decided to challenge yourself to read your Bible through this year, we want you to be successful!

Most of these scriptures are for new beginnings, new starts, forming a fresh outlook. They are perfect to place throughout your home in this New Year.
I encourage you to take at least one of these scriptures and focus on it as a sort of affirmation. Memorize it, take time to study it out. Place it around your home and use it as a reminder of what the Lord can do for you every day, every moment, through this upcoming year.
