Don’t Make A New Year Resolution!
Sometimes facing life as it comes is the best resolution of all, i.e., not to think about all that you are going to do and not doing; not to worry about all that might happen in life but always worrying about it regardless. No matter what the resolution is, we have a tendency to go the opposite direction and then regret because we went the opposite direction. Just like the new year, let there be a new day every day. God blesses every day and therefore, let us make it blessed by living in it. The only resolution needed in the new year, even though I said not to have one, is to live the day as it comes.
On that account, let us have one resolution, and that is to live every day joyfully. Let no one take your joy away. Even when things go wrong, life hasn’t gone wrong at all. Because we don’t know what is ahead of us and let not the past weigh us down too much. Let this year be a year filled with surprises as it happened to the people of Israel at the birth of Jesus.
