Here we are halfway through January. How many of you have kept your New Year’s resolutions so far? I have a friend who resolved to quit drinking last year. He said that it brought him so much satisfaction that he is going to quit drinking again this year!
I have stopped making resolutions for myself and have started making them for other people. It’s much easier that way.
It is often difficult to make changes in our lives, even if we know that it is in our best interest. However, unless you have achieved perfection, you should be looking for ways that God wants to change you for the better. Be open to any leading of the Holy Spirit that will point you in a new direction.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”—Romans 12:2.
