Do you make New Year's Resolutions? I have some years and others years have not. I have kept some and not kep others. I did notice a major uptick in the amount of people at the gym in early January, but it normally tapers off a few weeks later. Lots of people want to lose weight. Lots of people want to quit smoking or drinking or cursing. Lots of people want to make their lives better and believe that if they try hard enough they can do it.
But, mostly people stay the same. Those resolutions are often quickly abandoned. The dream of dropping a dress size quickly fades as we fall into old habits.
So, I have resolved myself to lean not on my own inner strength (which often fails) but instead to rely on God's strength (which never fails).
Psalm 28:7 says "The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him and He helps me."
Will you resolve with me to trust more fully in the Lord this year?
