So how are you doing with your
New Year's Resolutions?
Do you have abs of steel... yet?
Have you lost 20 pounds...yet?
Have you ___________...yet?
Not to be Debbie Downer,
but Resolutions can become burdensome as chores,
so little by little we give up because there is always another
New Year's Day to begin again.
RESOLUTIONS are not bad,
because they are pacts we make to change ourselves for the better,
But what if we made
BELIEVING GOD our first
would we give up so easily
"the PEACE OF GOD, which transcends all understanding,
guard our hearts & our minds in CHRIST JESUS" (Philippians 4:9)
Or would our
HOPE IN THE LORD renew our strength~
so that We will soar on wings like eagles; We will run and not grow weary, We will walk and not be faint (Isaiah 40:31)
Or would we be able to leave our past, present & future mistakes behind
because GOD has as we ~
"repent of our sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away" (Acts 3:19)
Or would fear be replaced by love because~
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love" (I John 4:18)
Just what if we made
for all that HE promises
as our first
then wouldn't everything just fall into place organically
because we would be
changed from the inside out
and that would change everything
made it so
JESUS IS MORE THAN A RESOLUTION~
HE IS THE TRUTH WORTH BELIEVING~
“If you abide in MY word[continually obeying MY teachings and living in accordance with them, then] you are truly MY disciples.
And you will know the truth [regarding salvation],
and the truth will set you free[from the penalty of sin]” (John 8:31-32)
