I have never been a devout advocate of New Year's resolutions, nor have I been a huge fan of the hoopla that surrounds the eve of a new year. However, as we begin a fresh chapter, I have personally challenged myself to adhere as best I can to the following statements:
I will not fail you again Jesus. I will rest strong in faith and be a tower for your people. A stronghold that shows them that you provide according to your perfect intent. In this provision your name will be lifted in ultimate praise and worship.
If you choose to let the fear of the unknown destroy, you will suffer without measure. If you choose to trust in a faith that is certain, you will experience miraculous divinity. Don't allow this time of hurt to weigh you down into the depths of hopelessness. Let this pain give you confident strength in all that you cannot control.
Chances are I will be whimpering at some point when the obstacles seem to hard or more painful than I care to endure, but in this I will offer continued praise because He will impart compassion. Happy New Year's - May this year bring forth bountiful celebration.
