Good morning all,
The word of the day is “flapdragon.” If your family is anything like mine, each year you have your ritualistic boardgames, flapdragons, and such that bring in the new year. I remember vividly growing up and having different families over at the house, engaging and all the fun and festivities of bringing in the New Year. I am also reminded of a renewing of my faith and a continued understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” ~Rom. 12:1-2
My question is: what are your resolutions for the New Year, and is God a part of them? My mentor has me make resolutions each year and defined my goals for the next 12 months. I’ve been doing this for quite some time now. Because I am an avid Journaler I am able to look back at this year and those previous to see what kind of progress, or changes that I’ve made up my life. My prayer is that you would look forward to the New Year and make sure that God is a part of any of your decisions to change. Use this time as a refresher in your faith, and make decisions that will last a lifetime.
Praying for you,
