New year resolutions….i am a believer :)

 

 

Proverbsmama

It is that time of the year again, the beginning of the year where everything is brand new. New year brings with it new hopes and dreams. At times, new year also brings with it reminders of buried dreams and failures.

Now that January is here, we will no doubt be hearing of the latest fad diets and must have books. Now i know we are supposed to be in the world but not of the world (John 17:14-15), but i cannot help but want to jump on this band wagon. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having faith and hope and having hopes for the new year.

Habakkuk 2:2 says , ‘And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it.’ I love this verse because it encourages us as believers to write our visions down and it ties nicely with Hebrews 11:1 which says, ‘Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see’. These verses are amazing because they show the starting ground of any dream or any hope and that is the planning stage where you write it all down and as time progresses you see yourself stepping out in faith and acting out what you have written. I believe writing down our visions is a bit like having a drawing board so that we can keep going back to it for pointers should we get stuck.

The Bible also tells us that we must act out because faith without works is dead so i encourage you and myself to write those resolutions down and act it out throughout the year. You will be amazed by what you will accomplish (With God’s help of course)

  1. Hi MAMA.
    PREVIOUS YEARS I WOULD WRITE DOWN ALL THE VAIN THINGS OF THIS WORLD. ESP. WEIGHT LOSS BUT WHEN I LOOK AT WHERE I HAVE COME FROM AND WHERE I AM NOW by his grace.aLL I seek is a MEEK HEART AND POSITIVITY ALL THE WAY. RADIATING ++++++++++vity……….. the Star out In the darkness

    • thanks for popping by, i think i been doing it the opposite way for a couple of years. 2 babies can take away the time for a busy mama to pamper herself so i will inject a little ‘vanity’ this year….i know the Lord looks at the heart (Thank God o) but i will fix my heart on Jesus whilst also trying to look fab on the outside for my hubby. xx:)

  2. I think resolutions or goals are all good at the beginning of the year. It helps UA set our plans with the Lord and pray into them and asking God and the Holy spirit to help us fulfil them. Without the plans and resolution one can loose his/her way in the year. We can also clearly see our desires being responded to through the year and trusting that God is with us in all our banal situations.
