How’s that Working for you?
By. Mrs. Muriel Robb
A new year, a new month, a new beginning; I’m going to read the Bible clear thru this year. I’m going to loose 50 lbs. I’m going to quit my addiction – smoking, drugs, or gluttony. I’m going to be a more loving caring husband or wife. I’m going to exercise and eat more nutritious food.
I’m going to be a bigger help in the fight for White Christian revival and not just a bench warmer. I’m going to let my kids know I love and like them every single day. I’m going to visit mom and dad more often and give them a hand if they need something.
I’m going to actually support the cause with my money and not just my mouth. I’m going to make it a priority to fellowship with other believers, even if it requires travel. I’m going to insure my family has positive role models.
I’m gong to put action behind my plan to organize a practical survival plan. I’m going to be a whole lot less critical, judgmental and gossipy, realizing when I point my finger at others I have three pointing back at me.
I’m going to be a much better friend. I’m going to start acting like, talking like, and living like I am a son or daughter of the most high God.
What resolution did you make? What plan did you start? Did you even have a plan? If you continue on the same path you always have you’ll get the same results as always. You talk about the end results, but the truth is, its all in the daily journey.
Consider Psalms 25:4 “Show me thy way,O Lord; Direct my paths.” And “. . . My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor. 12:9). Also, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take”. Proverbs 3:5-6. Your dreams and wishes all start one step at a time. Consistency and commitment is required. Any journey worth taking requires a guide. If you don’t take Christ along with you, there is little chance of a long term victory.
Trying to go it alone? How’s that working out for you.
