“In the beginning, God……………..”
Tomorrow, January 1, is traditionally known as New Year’s Day, a day of new beginnings! Many will declare January 1 as a “fresh start” day by making resolutions they hope to keep!
If you make New Year’s resolutions, I challenge you to place God at the beginning and at the end of your list. When you pursue God above all else, everything in the middle should be a reflection of your pursuit, and if it’s not, don’t write it down.
But you, Timothy, are a man of God; so run from all these evil things. Pursue righteousness and a godly life, along with faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness. I Timothy 6:11
Backing your resolutions with scripture will keep you accountable and remind you “why” you wrote it down.
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4
Remember, you need God!
I can do all things through Him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
And if you stumble and fall, begin again!
Great is his faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. Lamentations 3:23
Great is God’s faithfulness! Deb
