God, I put You first. I want to start with a clean slate and begin anew as I develop a deeper personal relationship with You. Thank you for sending Your Son who gave His life so I could have a new beginning.

When you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you are a new creation! You have a new spirit, a new walk, a new life! There may be “old” things in your life that you are trying to get rid of. Maybe you have old habits or addictions that you want to change. Remember today that the new has come. It’s a new day with new opportunities, and it’s time for you to be the new you. Let this be the day that you break old habits and addictions. Let this be the day that you move forward into a new life of victory. Let this be the day that you take hold of all the spiritual blessings the Lord has promised — peace, health, protection and victory.
Be encouraged today because no matter what is happening in your life right now, you have a chance for a new beginning. Choose today to leave the old behind — old behaviors, old thinking, old words — and embrace the new by faith because this is your day to experience the new life that He has prepared for you!
Makes 4 Sandwiches
- 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
- 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and halved crosswise
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 1/2 cup 2% Greek yogurt
- 1 medium carrot, coarsely grated
- 1 Kirby cucumber, halved lengthwise, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
- 1 lemon
- 4 whole-wheat pitas
- 8 Bibb lettuce leaves
Preheat the broiler. Soak the chopped onion in a bowl of cold water while you prepare the shrimp.
Toss the shrimp with the olive oil, paprika, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread in an even layer and broil until the shrimp are opaque, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Wash and dry the baking sheet.
Drain the onion and add to the shrimp along with the yogurt, carrot, cucumber, dill, and salt and pepper to taste. Grate in 1 teaspoon lemon zest and squeeze in about half of the lemon juice.
Lay the pitas on the baking sheet and toast under the broiler. Cut the pitas in half and fill with the lettuce and shrimp salad.
