New Year Resolution

Praying Man

Gym memberships and weight-control products are hot items at the moment because of those annual resolutions many are tempted to make.

How about something different? One resolution only: Don't ever give up on virtue and repentance and godly habits. Everyday, make a new start. When you fall, pick yourself up and try again. And again. Seek the Lord's presence and help in time of need. And whenever we fail is a time of need. Apart from Him we can do nothing! Learn that this year and we will go far.

Pray often and read the Bible every day—and if you can't acquire the habit, try it again, and again. Don't give up and say, I just can't do it. You can do it now. One step at a time. If you miss a day, don't go back and try to make up for it. Just start where you are today. It is always Today, the day of our salvation. It's not down the road, it's here, right now. "The Lord is near."

Thanks again to everyone who helped us this year! God bless you in the New Year.

Yours for Christ, Creed & Culture,
