New Beginnings in the Bible

The Bible is full of new beginnings. From God using the least to confound the mighty, to God working behind the scenes to provide a breakthrough for a character, God is often the central figure that propels change for that character. “New Beginnings” sparks hope in one’s heart, and hope does not disappoint. We invite ALL to join us in illustrating one of the many instances of new beginnings in the Bible.
