New Year's Resolutions and Change

As you contemplate the thought of changing things in your life, be it behaviors or appearances, what thoughts and feelings go through your mind?
  • I'm hopeless. I can't change.
  • I'm not that bad.
  • So-and-so is far worse than I am.
  • God must hate me and be so frustrated with me for being like this. I don't even want to think about him.
  • I should be able to stop this and be a better person.
  • This is so much a part of me that I can't imagine being different. This is who I am.
  • I'm worthless. Why does God even bother with me?
  • I can't bear looking at a list of my sins. It's overwhelming.
  • I am so sad when I think about my sin.
  • This has to change--I'll do whatever it takes.
  • I don't feel much about anything.

Resolve to make this next year one that will see you overcome your obstacles with God's help!

Psalm 65:11

You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.
