I read a great article this week titled New Year ... Same God by Kimberly Cotton (Justbetweenus.org). I'd like to share parts of this article.

Kimberly said, "So I decided to approach things differently. I asked myself, "What would happen if God created His own resolution list for me?" While I'm not an expert, I think it would look something like this:

God resolves ... I should be available

Too busy for God? Who ever heard of such a thing? I have to admit that I have often been distracted and less attentive to God's call by work, relationships, children, friends, and even ministry.

... I should be prepared

As we walk through life's unexpected changes, let's remember that God is still in control. As each year begins, prepare to be more prayerful, more organized, and ready to accept God's assignments. Spend more time in the Word and trust Him to use all the unforeseen challenges for His good purposes.

... I should be healthy

God wants to spend time with us, equipping us to embrace healthy outlooks and relationships.

... I should be disciplined

As we discipline ourselves spiritually, it's also important to discipline ourselves socially It's important to avoid joining in on toxic consercations.

... I should be a blessing

As we look ahead to each new year, let's remember that God offers us His best, blesssing us abundantly. Why? So that we may learn from Him and focus on His most important resolution for us: to be a blessing to others.
