It’s the end of the first month of the year. Just 30 days ago many of you made resolutions to change yourself this year. How is it going?
I picked Stretch as my word for the year, and that has helped me focus on change. Personally, my muscle flexibility has increased tremendously, I’ve cleaned up the basement a little bit ( not as much as I had planned), I’ve lost a few pounds, ( not as much as I had planned), I’ve gone the whole month without a carbonated beverage and we’ve eaten at home most of the month according to the plan. (Applause, Applause!)
It’s been a pretty good month for transformation in our home. Now, there are several other transformations that are faltering – organizing the office, keeping focused on exercise, letting the spirit lead, and always being peace in the storm. But they are moving along little by little.
How about you? If you change has been gentle or overwhelming, don’t quit. The first month is over, and it’s done – take stock, and move on. Keep changing a little bit each and everyday.
Oh and keep that one word that you picked for the year right out of you each day.
16Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.2 Corinthians 4:16 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
