I know it's January 2, but I want to share with you something I've been doing for many years, and encourage you to try it. Each year I make what I call a Scriptural New Year's Resolution. At the beginning of a new year, I ask God to show me something that I really need to work on in the coming year. So, here it is for 2019:
But you, man of God, avoid all this. Instead, pursue righteousness, devotion, love, patience and gentleness. Compete well for the faith.
1 Timothy 6:11-12
Give this a try. When you find the right verse, print it out and put it somewhere that you can look at it every day. Oh, and pray it every day.
Father, show us in your Word what you desire us to work on this year, and give us the graces to allow you to change us into what you desire us to become. Amen.
