Before you make plans for your new year resolutions, I’d like you to close out with some success. You might not even remember your 2016 resolutions much less fulfilled them but as you know it’s not the end of the world. It’s just the end of the year.
I’d like for you to try something a little different as you close out the year. Make a New Day Resolution.
At the end of today think about what you would like tomorrow to look like. Are you going to be lazy and squander your day or commit to something. Resolve to start tomorrow with a prayer and commit the day to God. Create a daily To Do List. Keep it simple and celebrate your life at the end of the day.
See if you could do this each day until Christmas then make that a part of your Christmas celebration. As you celebrate the birth of your savior, remember that you are imperfect and need a savior. Then let His grace empower you to live the miracle of each new day.
As I close remember Lamentations 3:22-23
22 The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[a]
his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
