New Years Resolutions

Every year on New Years, I always like to start off with writing in my Journal. I've done this for several years now, and sometimes I write about just random things, and others, like today, I began to write about the thoughts of New Years resolutions. The first few ideas that came to mind were things like; journaling every day for the whole year, getting caught up on my schoolwork, stretching daily so I can touch my toes without bending my knees, different things like that. However, seconds after I'd written these things, I began to realize I'd left out a very important thing - my relationship with Christ. I wrote this: "Shame on me for leaving out something that should have been the very first thing on my list - growing in Christ and bringing Him the glory in all I do."
 Not long after I'd written that, Mom came in and told me we were going to go into town and do a little shopping. We'd went to K-Mart, and then to Barnes and Nobles, where I found something to help me with my most important resolution for this year - a devotional book entitled "Devotions for a Revolutionary Year - 365 Days of Jesus' Radical Love For You." by Lynn Cowell. I started tonight with day 1, and so far I really like it, and I feel like this book is definitely going to help me in my walk with Christ not only this year, but for many years to come.

 My question is, what about you? What will you do today, tonight, this week, and throughout this year to strengthen your faith in Christ, and bring Him the glory in everything you do?

Happy 2013 y'all, let's start this year off being 3G and growing in Christ - together.

"My love to all of you in Christ Jesus." ~1 Corinthians 16:24
