Another Chapter in The Story of Our Lives

New years do not make new people, only Christ does. As we venture into another year, may our lives be about continuing the process of newness we have in Christ, realizing that while a new year may not make us a new person, it is another step toward it. If you want to make an excellent resolution, write down all the things you want to change, the habits you want to form, on a piece of paper, including all the details, then take that piece of paper, fold it up nicely, seal the document into an envelope, then dispose of said envelope into the nearest trash can or fire. That is how to make an excellent resolution. Christ does not change us through resolutions made in ourselves, He changes us as we resolve to live in Him. Yes resolutions are nice and healthy habits good, but the only way for true change to occur, is to put Him first. We are not perfect, mistakes can be expected, but what matters is not whether or not we will make mistakes, but how we learn from those mistakes upon making them. New years are not new books in the story of our lives, they are new chapters, and regardless of what the last chapter looked like, the next does not have to look the same.
