A New Year’s Resolution

I think I’m probably a lot like you. When it comes to New Year’s Resolutions I just can’t help myself, even though I have years of experience failing. So once again I’ve crafted a list for 2017 of things I want to stop, do more often and start. And, no, I’m not going to share it with you so that when I break them, I won’t have to deal with what I think you think of me. But there is one resolution I am going to share. In fact, I’m also going to urge you to adopt it. That’s to make God’s amazing grace the heart and soul of your life. This is not something you do for a few minutes in the morning during your quiet time or Sundays at church. It’s real life all the time. And here’s how it works. When you’re down on yourself, rest in it. When you are stuck in a not-so-good place, let it change you. And when you get too caught up in yourself, let it fill you with God’s vision for your life. After all, this resolution is not just for a new year, it’s for eternity.
