Day 2 – Resolutions Blown


2014.01.02

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11

If you are like me (and I pray you are not), you have already blown any New Years’ Resolutions you made yesterday.  You ate too much.  You were nothing but a sloth.  You didn’t read your Bible or exercise or pray or any of the other 27 items on your list to make you a better you.  You blew it.  Day 2 and you’ve already failed.

Or have you?

There is a plan that is bigger than your resolutions.  There is an agenda that includes more than calorie counting and exercise bikes.

God has a plan for you that offers a future.  It offers hope.

So get back up, brush yourself off, thank God for his faithfulness, eat a carrot and drink some water and meditate on this passage from Jeremiah once again.  God has just gotten started making your life different and boy is it gonna be good.
