Marriage and Family: Resolution Carry OversJanuary 02, 2012
Each January, our family sits down together and looks
at the past year's resolutions.
We celebrate the goals that were accomplished and forecast
new goals for the next year. We always have a bunch of
"carry-overs." You know, those goals that never seem to
get accomplished but get pushed to next year, many of them
remaining on the list for years! Anybody?
Maybe the carry-overs remain because WE are making the
resolutions instead of asking God what He wants on the list.
Maybe they carry over because they are
things that God wants us to begin to pray about
and then prepare us for over the
years to come. Many times, our lists have a lot of
carry-overs simply because we lack
two very important things: determination and discipline.
We may have short-lived willpower, but the Word says without
the Spirit's power, we will fail. We need
Spirit-power to sustain us and give us the
determination to see it through to
completion, even when our fleshly body and mind are weary.
We must make up our minds and then put into practice those
things that get us the desired results.
Jesus said that those who hear His Word and put it into practice
have a house that is built on the rock.
This next year, we are committed to having both
determination and discipline in accomplishing what we believe
God is calling us to individually and as a family.
AND We are committed to you. That's wny, each week, we will be offering
a blog, as well as, an audio, and a video resource to help enlighten, encourage,
equip, and empower you with truths based on the Word.
We will also include a "double-dog dare"
to help you put into practice what you’ve read, heard and seen.
We really believe God is going to use all of this to help us grow
into more fully devoted followers of Christ.
