New Years Resolutions 2018!

I found an article from Faith and Health Link on making New Year’s Resolutions and wanted to share with you.

Biblical Guidelines for making resolutions.

The Creator of our bodies, minds and spirits wants each of us to turn to him and his truths for guidance in setting new resolutions. He wants us to resolve to live more deeply in love with him and in obedience to him and his will for our lives.

*Open your heart and ask God to reveal any ongoing sinful habits, then ask for help to turn away from them.

*Ask God to help you surrender to him at a deeper level. Admit to him you are dependent and reliant on him.

*Ask God to show you what he wants you to do differently. Ask him if there are any specific goals HE wants FOR YOU in 2018. Then, ask him to guide you in a plan on how to accomplish them.

*Ask him to help you understand what health-related behavior changes he wants you to make with the motivation for better caring for his temple. (1Corinthians 6:19-20)

God wants us to acknowledge him in all our ways!

A Happy and Healthy New Year to you!!
