Being & Building Followers & Friends of Jesus

Call me old-fashioned but I still make New Year’s Resolutions. Do I keep them? Not always! Yet I’m old enough to know if expectations and goals aren’t set, they’re not reached. So here’s my list for this year:

  1. Read through the Bible in its entirety.
  2. Read more books. (Currently my Kindle is used primarily for the Every Word game. What a waste!)
  3. Become a better finisher. (My mom continues to teach me this.)
  4. Cultivate discipline as a writer by designating specific times.
  5. Keep a cleaner, less cluttered home. (There are spiritual applications here, too.)
  6. Pray more fervently and consistently!
  7. Love God with all my heart, soul, mind and strength.

I can’t really look ahead without reviewing the main principle learned in 2011. Knowing when to say “yes” and when to say “no” has always been a struggle in my time management. Last year the Lord taught me a very significant precept about this. I have to measure each decision by this question: “What is it that only I can do?” When that is answered after prayer and petition, deciding how to spend my time is much easier.

Thanks you, Lord, for giving me insight this past year. I pray for more wisdom in the coming days. In Christ’s holy name, Amen.
