Last year was quite the year. As it is the beginning of January, New Years Resolutions are in a full swing. People are hitting up the gym everyday, still dieting after a solid two weeks, staying true to daily devotionals, exc. Some peoples resolutions have already ended (like me who was going stop drinking coke….lol)
Although it is a new year, I am not trying to change my ways just because it is January 1st. Why not change them on December 30th? I feel that if something is important to you, why not take immediate action instead of using the excuse of “its my new years resolution” to wait a few extra days.
Back in November, I turned my life over completely to Christ. Since then, I have grown tremendously through his Word. I still do my daily devotionals. I have my quiet time. At church the week before the New Year, they mentioned to up your game. As of now, I have quiet time every other day or so. Sometimes I forget, but I try to make it a point to do it at least every other day. There is no better way to grow with the Lord than being engulfed in His Word.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I think New Years Resolutions are great. But if you break the resolution after a month, don’t give up. Get back on it the next day. We all falter from our goals every now and again, and none of us are perfect. But we all have room for improvement.
My improvements are going to be to stay on my top game with my quiet time. I am going to try to do about five times a week instead of the maybe three that I get in now. Just remember: if you stray away from your faith, or if you make a mistake it is all going to be okay in the eyes of Him.
1 John 1:9 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Thanks for reading, and have a fabulous beginning to the year!
