“How I wish we were given an eraser. I would have erased all the mistakes I made these past years…” That was a comment from a young man who had read my last thought nugget (titled “A New Chapter”). I also received a number of private emails which similarly expressed regrets over things in the past and a deep longing for a brand new page to begin this year.Here’s some good news: You don’t just need erasers to erase all the mistakes in the previous chapters of your life’s book. You don’t just need to begin your New Year with blank pages. You can start with a beautiful page! Here’s how I stated it in one of my previous thought nuggets titled CLEAN RECORD: “You can have a clean record! A preacher illustrates how: When Jesus sits at His heavenly computer, He highlights our list of sins. Then He hits the DELETE key, totally erasing our sins! But Christ does more. He also opens up another folder—the file containing His perfect, sinless record. He highlights and clicks on COPY, then goes back to our record, which is all blank now, and hits the PASTE key. And, lo and behold, His record appears on our record, and He presses the SAVE key! His righteousness becomes our own! ‘If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness’ (1 John 1:9; cf. Isaiah 43:25; 44:22; Colossians 2:13, 14). Spotlessly clean record! Praise the Lord!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim” You can jumpstart your new year. You can have an advantage over others by allowing the world’s best-selling Author to introduce this new chapter of your book with His powerful words of endorsement. If you allow Him, on each day of the new year, His accomplishments can be permanently saved on your record. Yours will not merely be a mistake-free blank page. It can be a beautiful page! His can be yours! Start with His beautiful page. On this note, I wish you a VERY Happy New Year! –Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
