Welcome to 2020!
Today is both the start of a new year and the start of a new decade! I hope you had a nice New Year’s Eve, and I pray that this new year will start off smoothly for you!
The beginning of a new year is often a time when people decide on what changes they want to make in their lives. I encourage this tradition, but I also want to add two things to it.
- It can be difficult to stick to one’s New Year’s resolutions, and I know that many resolutions are never met. This can lead to a feeling of guilt and/or depression. So what I encourage you to do when you are planning your life changes is to think of the things, no matter how small, that you have successfully changed in your life.
- Striving to meet your New Year’s resolutions alone is the hardest way to go about it. I encourage you to work with the Lord in order to meet your goals and to find fellow brothers and sisters in Christ who can help you stay strong.
If you need prayer for staying with your New Year’s resolutions, please leave a comment and I, and hopefully those who follow and read this blog, will be praying for you!
