This is one of my favorite podcasts that I have recorded. I hope you listen and are encouraged!
The new year is always full of promise, resolutions, and plans. We have high hopes on THIS being the year that we will get it right. And very slowly as the months go by, we tend to fall back into old patterns and habits. And we begin the very same cycle next December/January to resolve again, to make THIS year the year we get it together.
As Christians, we know that we will never have it fully together this side of heaven. We are on a journey, and while the plans and resolutions we make can be helpful, many times the focus is on US and what WE can do for a better year.
Resolve this year to focus on Jesus. What can HE do through you in the new year? Better yet, what does HE want to do? Many times the plans look very different from yours, but they are always best.
