All of those New Years resolutions, what a bust right? Everyone making promises me and my ancestors know they will not keep, most of these people won’t remember the promises they made because they made them when they were drinking or they were just flat out lying. Now I know, you are probably reading this going…”okay”…”we get it”…”so what is your New Years resolution, I mean sense you’r making a stink about it you must have one right?”
Okay, fine, you got me. I do have plans, hopes and possibly of list of things I am going to get done on what would happen to be the new year. But it is just like birthdays and Christmas, why do we wait till then to do when we could be doing it all year. Why make goals now when we could have been making them and actually getting stuff done. As you can probably tell I really do not have the greatest amount of patience when I am attempting to accomplish something. I see an end goal, a light at the end of the tunnel, the cauldron and the end of the rainbow, something. I do not care if I have to fight the little guy guarding the gold pot it is mine.
I actually have a goal for all of you, I am determined to fufill it this New Year, and not because it is the New Year but because it gives me a visual deadline. I ask of you and me to declutter the extra in our lives that is causing us stress and unhappiness. I do not care if it is a closet issue, a “I’m in the wrong crowd” issue or if it is something like me where I have two many jobs. I want to please everyone and be what everyone else wants me to be. I want to be helpful and to be a part of everything that I am actually missing something. I am terrified that what I might be missing is my true calling from God. That is scary friend, do not let life and YOUR choices make you miss the one important and only reason we are even in existence and on this planet. You will be held accountable, WE will be held accountable for what we did not do.
I do not want to miss a blessing from my Father so I will do my best to do what I should do. I am still seeking answers, but if my worst fears are right, this year will be very hard on my flesh. Pray for me brothers and sisters as I will pray for you to have the courage to do the same. The devil comes in various ways, sometimes too appeal to our glutinous self, selfish self, prideful self, oh our sinful flesh why be so a burden!
Our Father sent his son to die on the cross for our sins. John 3:16
May this all be our New Years and Forever resolution, to be our true selves in God, never stopping him from making changes to us no matter the pain. Hallelujah, Amen.
Sincerely and with the greatest respect yours truly,
P.S. May we be grateful for the little things God has given us, just as I am grateful for that tiny glow stick I had that cold dark winter new years night of exactly 1 yr ago amen.
