It’s been many, many years since I created a New Year’s Resolution. I believe the work we must do is a daily resolution. Therefore, I have been waking up every morning over the past few years with a resolve to be the best I can; slay my goals; pull music from the static and let the challenges chisel me into a champion. I learned this neat trick from my minister, Bro. Jim Love, that I believe can help transform us all. Make an acrostic poem with the word resolution(s) for your personal purpose and improvement. Here is mine:
Read more, watch less.
Encourage others daily.
Separate myself from people who do not make me better.
Occupy my life with prayer, positive talk, and progressive learning.
Love and live more!
Understand God’s will for myself and attempt to better understand others.
Trust God more!
Ignore past mistakes, keep the lessons, and push through to the future.
Open my mind more to the guidance and Power of the Holy Spirit!
Need God more!
What are your goals, guiding words, and hopes for this day, month, or year?
