The Plan?

As always, the New Year brings lots of thought and contemplation.

What do I want to change, what can I do to make a difference, how do I improve myself...?

Of course there is the usual, get in shape, lose weight, get organized, read the Bible through again, volunteer at a charity, blah, blah, blah...

What is it about myself, that I want to make changes or start over or get going, only to fail. I always fail. I purpose to do it right this time and once again I fail. I think I put way to many expectations on myself, I cannot do anything on my own.

Yes, a light bulb moment!!! Okay, I will never be able to do anything on my own, I know this. Now comes the hard part, relinquishing control over to God yet again. So, I will start over, I like that, start over each morning. If I let myself start over, then I don't have to feel bad about failing. Each new day will bring victories as well as failures. I can celebrate and I can learn, I can grow.

Hmmmm...I wonder if this is what He had planned all along.

Paul says "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
SO you do not have to do anything alone and set yourself up for failure. He will help you if you let Him. We will pray for you to start new every day a new beginning. Happy New Year!
