I’m not waiting until January 1st this year to celebrate the New Year… or to make some resolutions.
When you think about it… every day is the beginning of a ‘new year’… I mean, isn’t that how we mark anniversaries? We take a significant event, mark the day, and celebrate (or grieve, or remember, or honor) on that day each year.
I’ve got a lot of improvements to make in my life… and starting on September 1st, I’m going to get super-intentional. I’ve got to get more fit, eat healthier, live a greener life, save more money, spend less money, pray more, be kinder, calm down, worry less… and the list goes on and on.
For each day leading up to 9/1 I am going to write about one of the improvements I hope to make… and reflect on it in light of the Christian Scriptures (The Bible). I believe that those inspired words of faith, the Bible’s… not mine :), can help us all be the best we can be… and I invite everyone to check that out for themselves.
Paul thought so too… he writes to his young student in the ministry, Timothy, these words (2 Timothy 3:16):
All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
I need some of that! How ’bout you?
