NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION…MAKE IT, DON’T BREAK IT
At the beginning of each new year people tend to make resolutions, or plans, on how they will better their lives in the upcoming year. Resolutions can include things such as losing weight, exercising, spending more time with family, eating healthier, and so on. Some people successfully keep their New Year’s resolutions and achieve their desired goals, but most of us have already given up on them by the end of January, if not sooner.
Why do so many of us fail at keeping our resolutions or reaching our goals? Basically it’s human nature to want to do things ourselves and not accept any help from others; we mistakenly see this as a weakness if we depend on others for support. Exercising with a friend or joining a group such as Weight Watchers or TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) provides us with support, keeps our motivation level high, and makes working towards our goals more fun.
In Philippians 4:13 Paul writes “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me”. Paul’s faith was so strong that he knew nothing would be impossible for him to achieve. We tend to forget this today; we need to seek God’s will for our lives through prayer before we commit to just anything that comes across our paths. Our strength to follow through will come from Jesus if we remain in God’s will.
As 2018 draws to a close let’s take a good look at ourselves and our lives. Are our goals for the new year selfish ones, or do they concern things that have been placed in our spirits? Is our attendance at services what it should be, and are we using the talents God has given us for His glory and service? If our goals and resolutions are in line with God’s plans, then 2019 will truly be a Happy New Year!
