It's a New Year and time to renew (stress over) the yearly resolutions. My resolutions go something like this: work out more (or at all), eat healthier, work on bad habits, form better habits, pray more (is it possible to pray enough?!), be a more loving mother and wife, catch up on all my never ending home projects and the biggie...let God be first in all I do.
New beginnings are a wonderful thing if only for the purpose of filling us with hope and promise. Yes, I realize I will most likely fall short of my goals but the lingering feeling of possibility will remain, as long as I don't face them alone. For with God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). So I'm not going to sweat the small stuff, worrying about my yearly vows. I think I'll only work on one...to trust God in all things, large and small. Letting go is so difficult but the possibility fills me with hope!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely; In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths.
Peace and Joy,
