Copy and paste your entry here.The beginning of a New Year is a time of closure, beginning again, and resolutions. Closure occurs when we recognise the old is gone. Whatever successes or failures, whatever gains or losses, all that is last year is gone into our heavenly Father's hands for his keeping. And from His hand of mercy, we receive a new beginning of challenges, opportunities, trials and blessings. For many it is a time of renewed energy and hope. Perhaps we examine ourselves, and find we have areas of our lives that could stand improving. Or maybe, after a season of indulging the flesh, our sense of guilt is triggered and we heartily step forward to harness our lusts with an assortment of resolutions: to loose weight or become more physically active through excercise; to curb our television viewing or to become more consistent with our devotional times; to spend more quality time with the children, to love more or grumble less...on and on goes the list.
Personally, I support the practice. Make use of the renewed energy and fresh slate. Only let's make our resolutions simple and achievible. Focus on one or two goals that can be measured. And if we run down, we can be encouraged to know that we are constantly provided with seasons throughout the yaer that motovate us to new resolutions. So if we fall short....remember, Lent is coming!
