One of the first things I hear from myself about last year's promise list is "I hope to do better this year". Or "Last year was full a complete failure." Not the most positive perspective but realistic. So when I think about resolutions for myself, I don't want to fail, or disappoint again. Myself that is....
You are really listening on my own private thoughts here...I want to do better. I want to be excellent. I want to realize my potential. Brent says my greatest strength is also my greatest weakness. I want to see God here...there...everywhere. I want to do more than just wishful thinking. I want to think, ponder and meditate on scripture. For me, that is were change happens. Any time I align my heart with God's I know there will be some change.
You might be thinking that's negative right? Wrong!
So in 2012, for today.... I promise to...do better.
I am going to re-learn my life's verse...and trust. I trust. I will trust in Jesus with everything. I will trust Jesus in everything. With all circumstances, with all calamities, with communications, words, actions etc. When I feel like giving in or giving up...I will trust. Proverbs 3:5-6 says to acknowledge God. That is simple, effective strategy. So in my mind, in my heart, in my soul I will trust.....and that will give God sovereign control over my life. That is my response and the way I trust. This is the way I can do better.
Do you have a life verse?
