New Year’s Resolutions

How will you begin this new year? How does 2016 need to be different from last year? What is on your list of new year’s resolutions? If you reflect your countrymen, your resolutions might be one of these. Lose weight, get organized, spend less and save more, enjoy life to the fullest, stay fit and healthy, learn something exciting, quit smoking, help others with their dreams, fall in love, or spend more time with family.

All noble and attainable goals. Each focuses on an important area of our lives. With these areas in balance and on the right track, the rest of the world can be handled. According to statistics seventh-five percent of people maintain their resolutions through the first week. That number drops to sixty-four percent when you get past a month. And only forty-six percent of new year’s resolutions are still intact and on target after six months.

I start this new year with the words of Proverbs 3 on my heart. It is my new year’s resolution. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” As you write and follow your new years resolutions, keep these words on your heart. Put God first, trust Him, and He will guide your paths.
