All of the Christmas decorations have been packed, holiday food has been eaten, weight has been added and resolutions have been made.  Some tackle the new year with a fresh outlook, strong start and determined steps while others simply begin the same routine. The only difference between last year and this year is that a year has passed and they are still doing the same things. Paul encourages you as a Christian to look at life differently this year.  Do not simply go with everything the world tells you to value or achieve, but fix your gaze beyond this world.

Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
[Romans 12:2]

God loves you and has a plan for you!  He has placed a calling on you to love Him more and love others.  It will take determination to “renew” our minds from thinking the way we always have.  Seek His wisdom and be brave enough to take advantage of the opportunities God places before you.  Your life and the lives of another could literally be depending on it.

In Him,
