happy new year’s…

Posted on: January 1, 2013

Have you made your New Year’s lists?

Do you know what bad habits you picked up during this year that you want to change? Or things you want to stay very much the same?

Why do we knock ourselves out thinking that January 1, is some kind of ‘magic’ number?

Like the day itself can motivate and push us into that better person we long to be?
Congratulations to the few who will make their lists and stick to them. They have probably done so since they were born, so it’s no big surprise when they announce at the end of the year they ‘did it!’ (It’s still an accomplishment!)

Others never even made it out of the starting gate. January? Already? Well, I’ll start tomorrow. Others tried all year, picking different starting gates until here we are, back at the original gate…

It is a vicious cycle. Vicious because we feel that if we don’t have the self-control to force ourselves to do something for our own good we feel like we’ve let everyone down. Vicious because of our friend, who sits there and maliciously, (but most likely unknowingly) slyly berates us and tells us were no good; if THEY can do it, anyone can…

So not true… as we know, not everyone is equipped for the same purpose… (There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. – ! Cor. 12:4-6 NIV)

So, write your list if you must, but, instead of things you want to change about yourself, write things you LIKE about yourself. Promise to encourage those traits to take the front seat and all those other things you don’t like? They’ll be sitting in last year’s pile… (Just don’t get ‘proud’ of your ‘good traits’; nothing spoils a good thing more than a braggart…)

May you have an awesome New Year’s celebration and may God bless your hopes and dreams and guide them to fruition.

“‘“The Lord bless you
    and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you
    and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you
    and give you peace.”’ (Numbers 6:22-25, NIV)

and God’s people said…
