My New Year’s Resolution

My New Year’s resolution is simple: DON’T HAVE ONE. Are there things I hope to accomplish, or better yet, hope God works through me to accomplish? ABSOLUTELY. Are there things in my life that need truing up? WITHOUT A DOUBT.

But instead of making a long list of resolutions, I am just going to do some things.

Spirit-led. Incremental. Focused. Those are the key words for me this New Year’s season. I know I will try and fail at some things and then get right back up and try some more. The accomplishment will be just as much about the journey as it is the destination.

What are your key words for this New Year? What is it that God is leading you to for His Kingdom’s sake? Let us covenant together to begin this moment living into the life that God has drawn out for us. Each at her or his station. Each willing to submit to the will of God in our lives. That my friends will make 2007 the best yet!

I'm one of the pastors at First United Methodist Church in Lexington, Kentucky where I've served for the past thirteen years. The sub-title of this blog is "Grace is no accident" which happens to be the defining reality of my life. God's grace (gift) is the reason we have breath in our lungs and hope in our hearts.
