Resolution: A firm decision to do or not to do something. A bringing into focus fine details.
New Year’s is often a time of reflection and goal setting. We review the past year’s accomplishments and consider the possibilities of the coming year. I always find myself doing this very thing. I have even jokingly stated my resolution for this year is to make no resolutions. But, I cannot help myself…to be honest…I need improvement. Reflecting and making resolutions help me challenge myself to be a better individual, husband, father, business owner, and a believer in Jesus Christ. This process also challenges my desire to do and give more. Personally I have a desire to impact my generation, my community, and my world for the cause of Christ. I can do more. I can give more. I can make a difference. It is just hard for me to accept the average or think otherwise being a child of God and a student of the Bible.
I believe resolutions are a good thing. Hopefully, prayerfully, by God’s grace, and with resolve I will have made some forward progress by year’s end. Happy New Year!!!
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:13-14
