1 John 1:9  (ESV)
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

As we enter into a new year some tend to make resolutions of what not to do and what is intended to do. Some look at the New Year as a way to start over in life.

When we confess our sins and are forgiven that is a new spiritual start in life. Only His forgiveness can wipe out past mistakes. 

Your personal resolutions that are not kept are your mistakes being repeated by choice. When your sins are forgiven make every effort to walk in that forgiveness. Both are choices. Choose wisely.
