Truth: Resolutions.

I’m not a fan of New Year’s Resolutions, mainly because I’m not good at maintaining them.  I don’t know why – I’m a very habitual person and prefer doing things the same way over and over again (it annoys many of my loved ones).  But when it comes to making decisions to change my life, make myself better, and change who I am it’s much more difficult.  Maybe it’s because at my ripe old age I’m set in my ways.  Maybe it’s because I am fine with who I am.  Maybe I’m just lazy.  Whatever it is, I manage to stay the way I am. Or so I think.

What makes a change happen is realizing what God desires for me – I think there are definite changes that I need to make, and I can only make those with the help of my Creator.  I know there are things I don’t want to change that definitely need changing, and I’ll fight those changes every step of the way.  Whether it’s what I want to change, or what God wants to change, it’s all dependent on my allowing God to have a hand in the process.

This coming year is sure to be a doozy – if the past year has been an indication, I’m sure things in me are going to grow, change, bend, and sometimes break.  Truthfully, I’m looking forward to the changes that are coming my way (this coming from someone who hates change).  But I know that with God’s hands in my life, and my willingness to be moldable, I’m sure it will all be for good – difficult at times, good at times, indifferent at times – but it will be good.

May this year be a year of change for all of us, may we move in the directions God has made for us, and may we go through it (reluctantly, if necessary).

much love. sheth.
