These are things I ought to do not just at the beginning of a new year, but daily and consistently. The New Year is just a good time to reflect and think on these things.
- Seek the Lord's face daily and read and meditate on His Word asking Him to direct my steps - committing my way to Him and letting Him direct my thoughts. Proverbs 16:3 Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established.
- Realize that God's Way is the best way. I do need to make a plan and stick with it, but as I ask the Lord to direct my steps, if interruptions are brought my way, can I accept them as God's best, as perhaps a divine appointment from Him?
Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect: . . .
- People, my husband, my family ought to always come before things or plans. Can I be focused more on them rather than the things I need or want to do? Life on this earth will quickly vanish. May I invest in the lives around me for that is what I can take into eternity with me.
- Meditate on God's Word through out the day and keep a song in my heart and on my lips. Make this a continual and life long habit! You'll be glad you did!
