Do people still make New Year’s Resolutions? I must confess that over the years I was not into New Year’s Resolutions mainly because I could never keep them. But then I always tried to keep them by gritting my teeth and by trying to exercise my will. New Year’s resolutions have to begin first in the heart – they need to be based on a real desire to change; they should be according to God’s will, and kept only by the power of God’s grace! So there!
This year I have made a New Year’s Resolution – it is the desire of my heart to grow in my relationship with the Lord. I think this resolution is in keeping with God’s will and I believe He will give me the grace to keep it if I only ask and rely on that grace! But in making this one resolution I think other areas in my life that need to change will fall into place!
