She sits on a sofa, surrounded by her loved ones. As she gazes blankly into the TV, the ball begins to drop in NYC once again, as it does every year. Lost in a world of her own, she is consumed with thoughts of what the new year will bring. Voices ring out the countdown, but she can't help but worry about what another countdown means for her life. Will it bring anything?
...TEN... so 2005 is gone now, never to be revisited. I can't believe it went by so quickly. Where did it go? ...NINE... I guess it is about time for me to make another new years resolution that I will promptly break on about Jan 15th ... EIGHT... What should be my resolution for 2006? ...SEVEN... I could always loose a few pounds, quit smoking, drink less ... SIX... it sure seems like these are the same resolutions that I make each and every year, why can I never succeed? Am I bound to fail every year? ...FIVE... maybe I should be making resolutions for starting instead of resolutions for stopping? ... FOUR... maybe it should be about attitude and not so much on actions ...THREE... I have really been closing my heart to what God wants to do in me, maybe this year I will let Him in. ...TWO... Dear Lord, I hear your knocking, I hear your voice in my life, I want to let you into my heart. I pray today that you take my life, my heart, my past. Make me new, just like this year, so that I can start all over. I commit to you, to focus on the starting, not the stopping. I choose to start with YOU. ... ONE... HAPPY NEW YEAR!
"And I am sure that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again." Philippians 1:6 NLT
