Many of us like this time of year because it symbolizes a new beginning. It's a chance to evaluate where we are, where we want to be, align priorities....a chance to start fresh.
This can be an exciting prospect or a discouraging one if you've had the same "resolutions" for a long time!
God provides an action plan for us to grow in any area of our lives.
Start with God:
Seek first God's kingdom and what God wants. Then all your other needs will be met as well. ~Matthew 6:33 (NCV)
Spend time with Him:
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. ~Mark 1:35
Pray continually - 1 Thessalonians 5:17
Give thanks in all circumstances ~1 Thessalonians 5:18
Read and Obey His Word:
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. ~Joshua 1:8
Don't just 'resolve'; choose to take action. Regardless of what type of goals you have, let God's plan be the beginning of your action plan. You won't regret it!
