Just so you don’t think I have not even the tiniest desire to grow in the New Year… I will share with you my New Year’s Resolution. (Notice this is a singular resolution.)
But first, wouldn’t you like to know what the word resolution means?
OK – I’m getting to it…
There are of course, many areas of my life which would benefit from some commitment on my part to behave in a “certain manner.” But, there is only one I feel convicted by the Lord to commit to. The others may have spurts of effort periodically – but this one… I want you to ask me about.
I resolve to kneel in prayer, at my bedside, every night before bed to bring before the Lord my husband and children (and hopefully a smattering of others – but I’m not resolving on that one.)
Sounds silly doesn’t it, but truthfully, prayer is a struggle for me. I used to journal faithfully, which was great. But these days I usually read the Word and walk away, offering prayers throughout the day in a very random and sporadic manner. I’ll keep these up too, of course, but I do feel like I need some time set apart to concentrate on Jesus and the needs of the family.
I mean it – please ask me about this!
