Resolutions and Propositions
For the last few years I have avoided making resolutions and planning for the New Year – too many past failures, too much pain. Though the fear of failure remains a reality, I am healed enough to make an attempt at some new things this year. I looked up the word resolution in the dictionary and thesaurus to see if I could re-frame it with a new word, but resolution is a really good word and many of the alternatives are lacking in one respect or another. Even so, I choose proposition for my plans this year – I propose to do some new things. Hopefully, my propositions will become resolutions at some point and not remain in the realm of suggestion or theory, but rather through intention, determination and Holy Spirit affirmation become a reality. If you are reading this and you are my friend, please pray for me. 😉
1. Write on my blog weekly.
2. Play my instrument daily.
3. Cut one TV show out of my schedule.
4. Pray for my husband regularly, not just when I think he needs it 😉
5. Laugh with my kids more often.
6. Sing a song of praise every morning.
7. Read through the Bible with my family.
We humans make plans, but the LORD has the final word. We may think we know what is right, but the LORD is the judge of our motives. Share your plans with the LORD, and you will succeed. – Proverbs 16:1-3
