Save the DateSpring Retreat: March 12,13 (Sat,Sun)  

 

Well,  we have started another year.   I know, like me,  many of you have set new year’s resolutions with a focus on being better in things like your quiet time, eating better,  exercising or even school.   If you are like most of us,  we do a great job creating them but struggle just a few months after we start..if we are good.   What I have done this year is to actually focus on being in God’s word that convicts me and also asking a few people that are closest to me to share areas that they believe I could grow.

I find that many times  I can read God’s word and be convicted but not be able to practically put it into practice until I royally fail.  Even then, I choose to go back to that sin.    God created the body for a reason and some of your closest Christian friends or family are there to help us in our own fights against satan’s schemes, our flesh and the world. (Eph 6:11, Gal 5:19, I Peter 2:11)

Quick Questions to Ponder:

  1. Do you remember last year’s resolutions you made?  How did you do?
  2. Have you told any other believers this year’s goals or resolutions?
  3. Are your goals/resolutions to make yourself look good or for God to be glorified.

Happy New Year and Look forward to Seeing Most of you Back all together in a Few Weeks!!
