Resolution with God

 

Psalm 51: 10 – 11(KJV): 10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. 11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.

New Year’s resolutions are something that I usually break within the first 3 days of making them. This year I am going to change the narrative of that story. But before I start, I have to figure out what happened in past years that caused me to break goals I set for myself.  Is it that most of my goals are superficial? Maybe the goals I make aren’t realistic for me to achieve?

As I have this personal pity party the answer becomes clear to me. I have been making resolutions about me and what I will do.  This has been done in isolation without speaking to God and asking Him for His guidance for the year.  So, this year as I embark on a new resolution in partnership with God I will have to really be open to change, be fearless, and really put all my trust in Him. I will have to make sure that I will not make things my will, but His.

So let me be vulnerable for a second. I have been writing this blog because I had truly been led by God to do so.  Then I decided to stop blogging and start writing a book.  That’s when everything got messed up. I derailed from what God wanted me to do to focus on my own personal goal. When I tell you I had writer’s block it was like to the 10th degree. I was praying and asking God what happened to our line. He asked me as clear as day, “Who told you to write a book? I told you to start a blog and allow Me to use you to reach people.” So to start 2018 off right I have to totally and completely surrender to God.

Dear God,

Thank you for the many blessings you gave me in 2017. You are truly an amazing and powerful God.  Lord, as I start this week I ask that you be with me every step of the way and guide my path.  As I reflect on last year I  ask that you help me be obedient to Your will for 2018. 

Amen
