Who was Harry S. Truman to Israel? Find out more in I Am Cyrus by Dr. Craig von Buseck.

 Someone once said there are regulators on our lives that help control and shape our destinies. These regulators include things we often take for granted like energy, sleep, food, money, and time. Wise management of these regulators can mean the difference between an average and an abundant life.

Another important regulator is what I call “newness.” Every 24 hours we are greeted by a new day at Midnight. Sunday morning brings a new week. On our birthday, we celebrate another new year of life.

One way we human beings tend to “clean the slate” is by leaving behind the old year and forging ahead with hope and expectation in the New Year.

C.S. Lewis writes: “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” I would add this.

You are also never too young to dream your dreams.

Whatever you are facing today, know that God has built “newness” into your life to give you hope and strength to press on. He has also given you talents that are available to open the door to future success.

Your role is to engage your circumstances with those talents – trusting God for His grace, favor, and strength – and then be persistent in pursuing your dream. Vern McLellan declares: “What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”

The future is yours to write. The New Year provides you with a book full of 365 blank pages. So get out your pen, roll up your sleeves, and chase that dream!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. … The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ― Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Dr. Craig von Buseck is the editor of Digital Content for Inspiration.org. His new book I Am Cyrus: Harry S. Truman and the Rebirth of Israel will be available from Lighthouse Publishing on April 22. Learn more at vonbuseck.com.

Falling Stars by Tanya Stowe released Friday  May 18, 2018

One of the youngest female producers in the industry, Sunny Bates has every intention of going to the top to create her own Christian-based films. She feels called to be a light in the darkness for people like her father who died of a drug overdose when Sunny was young. Her path is full of difficulties, but her greatest challenge is staying faithful in an environment saturated with temptation.

All Jackson Maise ever wanted was to play his music and raise horses on his family’s thoroughbred ranch. Sunny Bates is everything he never wanted in a life partner—a city girl and a serious career woman who wears the trappings of Hollywood as comfortably as she wears a glove. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t see Sunny on his Tennessee ranch. But tell that to his heart.
