It's so easy to make a resolution. All last night, you could hear the TV announcers and emcees asking people about them. Most people sputter something about losing weight,exercising more, or quitting smoking. How many people actually follow through? If you made a resolution to lose weight, did you get up and eat a healthy breakfast today? If you are going to exercise more, have you gone to the gym yet? I really think that so many people fail, including myself, because we easily forget to factor in our greatest source of strength and power... God. He is the one who can give our trials meaning and strength to our efforts. Not only that, but He loves you so much and wants to help you! No matter what your resolution is, start the day by asking God to help you. It's amazing what He can do. For me, it is about having the commitment run in such a way that I can glorify God by using the talents He has given me. Not huffing and puffing when it's cold outside or rationalizing why it's okay for me to eat just one more mint brownie instead of a healthy snack. On that note, I am off to the gym for some cross training. I was blessed to have a great workout yesterday (my faster mile time ever!!!) and don't want to get lazy on the first day of the year.
Whatever your resolution may be, I will pray that your efforts are blessed.
Prayer Request for the Day: for all your RESOLUTIONS!
Psalm 81:31-33 "For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the ROCK except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights."
