Reflect and Pray

Another new year is upon us. That means millions of Americans will make resolutions. I used to set big lofty goals and then fall off the wagon somewhere around the middle of February. So a few years ago, I decided to ditch the resolutions in favor of two steps: reflect and pray.

I reflect back on the prior year and give thanks for all that God has done. I think about the coming year and pray that the Spirit will continue to grow me. It’s a one time event that doesn’t have to be done or started by a certain day. Anytime around New Year’s Day works. It’s also more beneficial than setting a bunch of resolutions I know I won’t keep.
