God gives us a new day, a day to start over. As a child do you remember when your mom washed your clothes and they smelled so fresh. They felt warm all over, and fun to wear. At the end of the day though, you were glad to shed them in exchange for clean pajamas. Each time you changed clothes, it was as if you were starting fresh again, and with that change, it made you ready to meet the challenge before you.

When God forgives us of our sins, in many ways it is like a fresh change of clothes. We feel his forgiving arms wrapping all around us and he is telling us, it is time to begin anew my child.
