New Years Resolutions

I (like most people) have high hopes at this time of year for a good year ahead, but I'm not one to make new years resolutions. It isn't that I don't think I need to make any, it's just that I'm not that creative in that way...I've tried to think of things that I would like to work on and cannot come up with anything that I think I can stick with, so I have that "why bother" Eeyore kind of resignation to the situation. Instead
I remain hopeful that the things the Lord would have me do will be accomplished in my life in His appropriate times and seasons.

Philippians 3:12
I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.

I cannot improve on the things that God is doing in me except to trust that He will use all things good and bad to accomplish the good things He is preparing for those who love Him (Romans 8:28)

Persevere in the things that are ahead, and do not be too discouraged, but always remember that all things good and bad are temporary hang on, some days will be difficult, but the Lord will see us through them all as we wait for Him to do His will in all these things.

Please try to keep your comments on the topic of the post you are commenting on.

If there is a link to an article or podcast, or if there is an embedded video please view these before airing your views on the posting. If you clearly did not watch video/read link I may choose to remove your comment or leave your comment and then not respond to it ...particularly if you have a question that is already answered on link or video.

Opposing viewpoints are of course allowed here, however, I will limit such discussions to two or at most three further comments on one topic, so do try to get all your criticisms in while keeping that in mind, and don't take it personal....I just don't want to be bogged down with a constant barrage of replies that go on and on like a dog chasing it's tail in circles.
