These are the Teen Trails of Truth for Youth Illustrated Bible Studies in Cherbears Den Teen Caverns. These six lessons are appropriate for bringing in the New Year as they explain all that becomes new when we become children of God by accepting His Son, Jesus, as our Lord and Savior. They are also included as part of my Gospel for Teens and Preteens pages, presenting salvation by grace through Jesus Christ! The Curriculum page for this study is "What's New With Jesus?"

"Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
Lamentations 3:22-23
New Beginnings - Rise and Shine

Yesterday might have been a very good day for you. Maybe you were the best person you know how to be. Or, yesterday might have been a very bad day. You might remember you did some things or said some things that were not so good. God has a wonderful blessing for you! He says that He will give you a New Beginning with each new day. You can wake up in the morning and ask Jesus to help you have a good day. That's a great way to "Rise and Shine."

If you shine a light for Jesus, it means you will show others how wonderful it is to know Him. When we ask God to forgive our bad days, He is faithful to forgive us. He can help us with every new day. His love is the same, all the time! He wants us to choose to have good days. No matter what we are facing, He will never leave us alone. If we stay wrapped up in self concerns we aren't much good to Him. God is pleased when He can use our faith in Him to help others.

Gramma Cherbear brings fresh juice to her Critters every morning. It is not always easy for them to start a new day. They need a burst of loving kindness to get them going. With the help of some tender loving care, they will soon be able to rise and shine to meet the new day.

If our first thoughts in the morning are of how much God loves us, then we will be able to look at the new day with joy in our hearts. Each morning when we awake, we can know God's love never changes. Each day is a New Beginning and filled with New Blessings. Jesus Christ wants a love relationship with us. He wants us to praise Him and trust Him to handle anything that comes our way.
