I can't believe it as taken me almost a week to put down some line.
Are you one of the folks that make resolution?
Are you able to keep them?
There have been years I tried to make some simple resolution. Most of them ended in failure. Then I was one of those people who said, " Aww...resolution..I don't do 'em."
On December 31, 2010; I made one sort of my accident. I was driving into work very close to midnight. My drive takes me past a church that has a announcement board where they post their times and often a little message. A lot of the time I'm not impressed with the way to cutie cute messages that are on almost every church your drive by. I'm not judging the churches that do this but basically even though I'm a believer I can be terribly cynical. (I've been trying to work on that one) The sign read:
2011 Resolution: To Know God Better.
When I read it I said out loud to myself," Well there's a good one and the only one worth making. That will be my resolution for the year."
What a resolution it was!
I had one of the most trying years of my life but I also had a most joyous year. I am positive that God heard my words.
When time came to ring in 2012, I was sure to be careful of my words and I continue not to prefer resolutions. For me a resolution not kept is much like a broken promise. It's better to not promise at all than to promise and then be untrue. So instead of a resolution I set 10 Goals for 2012. These were personal goals. I also wanted to pick worthy goals that I prayed over. I also reminded myself, these were my goals and not necessarily God's goals.
Out of 10, I met 6.
Now I'm trying to find my 10 Goals for 2013.
Again, these will be personal goals. Here are a few questions I've been asking myself:
- Would this be a goal that God would be pleased with?
- Have I prayed about my goals?
- Am I going dedicate time to work on these goals?
There are a few key words that keep shouting out to me as I think about 2013.
Those words are time and faith.
What words do you think of for 2013?
I want to thank for stopping by.
I want to wish you a truly
A Wonderfully Prosperous New Year!
