Your Choice – Your Shannah

Your Choice – Your Shannah

The word in Hebrew for year is Shannah. But the word Shannah comes from the Hebrew for the number two. And the word year in Hebrew means “the second time, the repetition, the repeat” – for each year is like a repeat of the year before.

We often live our lives just this way; we continue to do the same things: the same mistakes, the same stumblings, the same fears. It’s just a Shannah – a repetition of what went before. But the word Shannah also means “new, the second, the second chance.”

So each Shannah, each year, is given to give us a chance for newness in our life. A new beginning to do the things we never do but should, to make the changes we know we should. It’s up to you to choose which one it will be.

In the power of God, He wants this Shannah to be something new and different, for “brand new” things, for overcoming and for victory. For in the new birth, all things will become new for you – but you need courage to break out of the repetition and into the newness of life.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

Do something new today – take a new course – a new action – step out in faith – break the routine – do something unexpected of the old you – but part of the new you God has called you to become.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
