Henry Ward Beecher said:
Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his fact to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past.
On the whole- good advice.
I don’t know how you feel about New Year’s resolutions, but here are worthy ones for 2010:
- Less complaints- more praise
- Less fear- more faith
- Less judgment- more grace
- Less rush- more relationship
- Less excuses- more service
- Less convenience- more commitment
- Less cynicism more trust
- Less of self- more of Christ
I pray that 2010 will be a great and grand adventure in which we fully engage the power of God in order to allow him the opportunity to accomplish in us more than we can ask or imagine.
If so, it will truly be a Happy New Year!
