New Years Commitment
Don't new years feel exciting? They have a freshness about them that feels like all things are new again! No matter what happened last year, this year you can make a diffference. You can change what is necessary in your life.
So this year, I made a New Year's commitment. I call it a commitment because a resolution has always sounded to me like something easily broken. Resolutions are always laughed at by others because they expect you to break them anyways. A commitment sounds more firm and final. Something that we actually have to stick to.
My commitment this year is to not eat breakfast until I have done my personal Bible study. And if for some reason I don't get around to it, then no breakfast! I came to this decision when I realized that the Bible is our spiritual food. Just like actual food is necessary for our bodies to function, spiritual food is just as valuable. Therefore, if I can't find time to feed my Spirit, then I can't find the time to feed the body! A wonderful commitment I have made to my Lord this year.
What commitment have you made to the Lord this year? And if you haven't, is there something in your life you would like to change for the better? If so, it's a new year! Just the right time to start.
Jeremiah 29:11- For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
