Starting a new year can be the source of anxiety for many. After all, it’s a key moment in the year when we might feel pressure to say goodbye to things that were familiar to us, to confront difficulties, or to start afresh.

Therefore, as we step into the unknown, we can look to Scripture to provide us with a strong foundation for a positive and hopeful start to the new year. And these six uplifting quotes will certainly inspire you with positivity, hope, and unwavering faith in the journey ahead. Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed and fulfilling year!
