Let no one seek his own good, but the good of his neighbor. 1 Corinthians 10:24
Wow I don't know about you but I love fresh starts! Tomorrow it is 2017! With the start of a New Year comes the freshness of starting over. Taking a breath from all the busy activities over the past few weeks leading up to Christmas. Now you can relax. Yay!
What are your plans for 2017? Do you have a resolutions list made? Perhaps projects you want to compete? Maybe a bucket list item or two to achieve? One thing is for sure you have to keep your focus on above, meaning God. It does not take long to focus on bad stuff and Satan is the expert at trying to get you buried in self pity, regret, fear, worry, and anger. Don't allow it.
Start today to make up your mind to not think or say negative things, this means talking about people behind their back or being ugly to someone to their face to include yes telemarketers. Tall order at times. Have problems with people? Give them to God. Have problems with yourself? Give it to God. Now go make a difference and bring in 2017 in a glorious way.
PRAYER: Oh Lord Jesus thanks for yet another year. A year to sing your praises. A year to right wrongs. A year to show love and kindness. Guide me each day to do your will. In Jesus' name. Amen.
