|Just a thought or two......
The other day I overheard two women talking in the grocery aisle. One woman was talking about how she had broken all of her New Year's resolutions. She was frustrated with herself.
I began to think about how we don't have to make resolutions or promises just on New Year's Day - we can do that any day. Every day is a new beginning when we can start over.
What is we made some of these promises, starting today:
To be so strong that nothing can disturb our peace of mind;
To make all of our friends feel that there is something special about them;
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future;
To think only the best, to work only for the best and to make the best come true;
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as we are about our own;
To give so much time to the improvement of ourselves that we have no time to criticize others;
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
That's a lot of promises, I know. But let me remind you that we don't do all that by ourselves. Be sure to ask God to help you. He has made some great and wonderful promises to us, such as "I will never leave you or forsake you" and "I am with you always, even to the end of the world."
Just something to think about.....
I hope you will be in your place this Sunday at 8:30, 9:45, or 11:00 as we worship God together! Remember Monday is the holiday - Sunday is the holy day!
