Good morning everyone. I hope all who read this had a merry and blessed Christmas.
Now that Christmas is behind us, it’s time to get into “out with the old, in with the new” mode and give some thought to what we might strive to change over the course of the new year.
No list for me this year, just a simple prayer…
Throughout the coming year I pray that I will thank you unceasingly for your precious gift of time. I pray that I will fully appreciate each of the over 31 million seconds 2017 has to offer and that I will not squander even one.
I pray, father, that every one of my goals, actions, words, and thoughts this coming year will line up with your perfect word and your divine will.
Lord, show me what you want from me in 2017 so I don’t begin yet another year with a collection of obligatory and insincere resolutions to simply do more of what’s good, less of what’s bad, or to improve myself in some earthly and eternally insignificant way.
Lord, instead of my own resolutions, I pray that you make me a humble servant who intentionally and deliberately seeks your will in everything I do and with every plan I make.
In Jesus name,
