Shout out to Chad from Nocona, TX. His resolutions are 1. "To read my Bible more", 2. "Work on my relationship with my girlfriend Sherri" and 3. "To lose some pounds".
Chad, check out this verse from Isaiah 43:16, 18-19 -- "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland."
2008 is coming to a close. We cannot reclaim it or undo it. We cannot rest on the things it has brought us. 2009 brings a another day, a new opportunity, and the time to show our faith in Jesus as Lord. Step forward in confidence that He has your future in the palm of His hands. Let's journey forward, knowing that God already inhabits the future and promises to provide us with just the right elements that we need to make right choices. Look forward to what God is going to do in your life in 2009. Set your goals and remember what you to accomplish.
