Another year has begun. Full of new resolutions. New beginnings. For most, another chance to complete what was not accomplished the year before. We all know the cycle. So what's going to make this year any different from years past? Are we more focused? Maybe a little wiser? Possibly motivated...for real? Only time will tell.
I, like everyone else have come to a resolve to make some changes in my life. But this time, I'm not doing the changes! I'm not going to TRY and lose weight, TRY to adjust my attitude, or even TRY to be a better person. I've realized that all this time and after all the years of trial and error, I was trying to accomplish my goals and resolutions in my own strength. Not recognizing that that has been my downfall in the first place." I " was in the way!
This year, my only resolution is to SUBMIT! Submit to God. Submit to God my every care, concern, issue, and problem. He is the ONLY solution to my resolution. I'm grateful for this "light bulb" moment. In my efforts to TRY and accomplish goals that in and of myself seemed to be attainable, remained out of reach. Simply because I didn't take the time to ask for help. His help. Psalms 37:5 says "Commit your way unto the Lord; trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass." So today I submit and commit my ways to Him. Awaiting His instructions that I know will reveal the answers to every resolution and experience the change in my life that I could never attain on my own.
