So, we are well into the new year...2009. My time really does fly!! And every year, I, as many of you, think about the past year. Some things I would love to change, some I wouldn't, what I did right/wrong, what I can do better... And this year I decided that I'm not making any resolutions. They always just beg to be broken anyway. I decided to do something different. Now I know what a resolution is...it's an intention, a firm intention to do something. I need more than that. Part of this past year has been about not being mediocre in the things that I do, so... it just didn't seem like enough. This year I decided to make some new year commitments. Those don't sound so easy to get out of, not so easily broken. After all, you make a commitment then people start expecting something from you... So here are the most important things that I am committing to this year...
*I am committed to knowing the Lord in a deeper way. More time in His Word, more time in prayer, more time recognizing His voice. Whatever it takes.
*I am committed to knowing more scripture. I know some, but not nearly enough. I want those verses so deep in my heart that I can call them to memory in a moments notice.
*And I am committed to making my relationships count. Being purposeful in every action, every word. Not being so concerned with the number of friends...but with the content and the quality of our friendship. Making sure that those that I love know it.
So there it is...right out there for everyone to see...makes it a little harder to take back, doesn't it?
