New Year's Resolutions....Yeah Right!

I have heard a lot of people who have stated that making New Year's Resolutions are a waste of time because they never last. Well, I choose to disagree in a positive way. I think resolutions attempt to make you accountable to yourself and why wouldn't we want to improve areas in our life?

One area that I set resolutions for was SPIRITUAL. There is always room for improvement in this area of one's life. I thought I would share my list in hope of encouraging EVERYONE to take your spiritual life to another level. Maybe by the end of the year, we all can say that we have grown a lot closer to our Lord.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:35-39
