New Life In The New Year

Everyone seems to be thinking about New Year’s resolutions:

Quit smoking.

Stop drinking so much.

Lose weight.

Gain weight.

Go walking every day.

Spend less time on the computer.

Long lists of items to change reflect time spent in cogitation over the past.

Why do we like to have that line drawn in the dirt, so to speak? New year, new start, right? If that’s true, then why do most resolutions fail? Could it be because many of the resolutions we make reflect issues that only scratch the surface of our being, and have no effect on the inner life of the soul?

Stop and think for a moment… Do you know why you were born? Do you know where you came from? Do you know where you are going?

There is One who has the answer to all of these questions, and He is ready to help you. Call on the Lord God while He may be found. Bring your cares and worries and your big bundles of disappointment to Him. Confess your sins to Him today, and let Him possess you.

With surrender comes peace, and a chance for new life in the new year.
