You wouldn’t believe how many people in America make new year’s resolutions. Guess how many are about weight, health and habits? Eventually our lists start to address walking closer with God. He ended up at number ten on one recent national list I saw. Maybe we think about God only every now and then because we perceive Him to be far away. But we have to deal with those extra pounds every time we try to put on our pants. What if we had to put on our faith each day like a pair of pants?
I saw this the other day…
“Life has no remote, get up and change it yourself.”
Each day comes with it’s own challenge. I don’t know about you, but I need some inspiration to get me through some of my days. On other days I find that I’m traveling too much on autopilot and not really as engaged as I want to be. I need to be inspired to be the real me, to interact with others in ways that matter. What about you?
I don’t want to sit back and just take what comes. I want to journey each day and keep my balance because I’m walking by faith and not by sight. How are you going to walk into 2015?
“So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.”
– 2 Corinthians 4:18
Let’s get up, walk into 2015 and practice at keeping our eyes on what lasts forever.
