God is faithful. He has sustained the earth and everything in it. He makes the ultimate decision of when this planet will cease to exist. Are we truly in alignment with His will? Are we making a positive impact with the gift of life that we've been given? As long as we are in the flesh, our natural reaction is to be about self. It takes a conscious effort to be selfless and takes even more of an effort to love others who are not like us.
This year, please no more... promising to loose weight, promising to manage our money, being a better employee, cleaning out the clutter, and all the generic stuff that we say to ourselves and then let that fall gently by the waist side.
Do something BIG for God. Do something that will show others how mighty His Power is and how His giving of His Son was not in vain. Acknowledge the Creator, the creation and all the marvelous things we oftentimes take for granted - Romans 1:20. Stop allowing the human mind to be consumed with the many, many things of this world.
Choose to LOVE the unlovable, choose to FORGIVE the unforgivable and choose the PEACE that Jesus freely offers us in scripture - John 14:27. Family and friends really do have the best intentions. But in the end, there is absolutely no love like the love of the Heavenly Father for His children.
Love for a great year!
