This is Not About Resolution

Okay, maybe it is. Sort of.

This is really more about attempting small changes in life so that a habit is reformed,  a goal is adjusted, a project more thoroughly committed… …hmm, I suppose that Is the meaning of “resolution?”

<sigh> Another new year’s resolution read, huh?

I do hate that term though: New Year’s Resolution. You too? It’s just way too intimidating.

When writing is your art, it can be extremely gratifying to finally say what you meant to say. And quite often, after you say it, you realize so many others have already said it and most of them have said it better. Yes, much is already out there about resolving for a new year: To get out of debt. To exercise more. To be more fill-in-the-blank-with-a-vituous-quality.

I’m thinking, though, of a streamlined point, a  focus on one area.

How about just that? “single minded”

One. Decisive. Purposeful. Perspective.

That’s what I am hoping for this year….Who an I kidding? This day.

When the world demands our attention for so much, when the world comes crashing down, think focus.  Think, purpose. Think, single minded. Getting it done for His glory. All, in His service.

~ Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2

Remember, now is not a forever grace. But it is an amazing grace. The needs of our day are great. But God is greater. I have all I need for today.

Let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfector of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him, endured the cross. Hebrews 12:1-2
