Christmas 2019 has come and gone. A New Year is dawning, and with it new hope and anticipation. We never quite know what the next year will bring, but whatever 2020 holds, we have the assurance the Lord is with us and will never leave us, if we are faithful to abide in Him.
Years ago, I stopped making resolutions that involve improvements to my outward appearance and replaced them with ones to deepen my spiritual walk. Things like spending more time in God’s Word, being more thoughtful of others, and cultivating the Fruit of the Spirit in my life. These virtues, though invisible to the eye, reap much greater reward and cause a ripple effect that flow into the lives of our spouses, children, coworkers, even complete strangers.
I developed a New Year’s Resolution Secret Recipe. In it, you’ll find all the necessary ingredients to make resolutions that will strengthen your inner self. The best part is, you can enjoy it all you want and the only weight you gain is spiritual heft! Enjoy!
Combine: 2 cups of faith, 1/2 cup of prayer, 2 teaspoons of positive attitude, 1 Tablespoon of patience, and a dash of humility. Mix in the Fruit of the Holy Spirit until smooth. Bake in 350 degree oven of God’s Word until golden brown. Enjoy the wholesome, fulfilling goodness within.
“For the Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (I Samuel 16:7)
As we transition from Christmas into the New Year, what resolution is on your heart to make?
