What's New At Grace
Once the crazy schedules of Thanksgiving and Christmas have passed, you may find yourself with a moment of quiet to reflect on the last year. 2022 is just about over. Many of us will look at our New Year resolutions and consider how we measured up to living a healthier life. If you are like most people, this reflection time may be discouraging as you consider the bad eating and exercise habits through the holidays. Setting new attainable goals may be on your mind as we enter the new year.
Whether or not you took on the 100-day challenge, setting goals is important and helpful. Setting habits and creating schedules to prioritize tasks is essential to get all that is needed done each day. In the 100 Day Challenge I encouraged you to plan for success. Specifically, I encouraged you to not look at just your exercise and eating habits but also your prayer time and time reading God’s Word. If you aim at nothing you will hit it every time. Yes, perhaps you have heard me say this before, but repetition is the key to successful thinking.
As believers we must continually remind each other to focus on Christ, spend time with Him, and love others genuinely. These reminders encompass many actions and cover a multitude of situations. Although you may have heard it before, you can hear it again.
The sermons the first two weeks of the year will be on our New Hope in Jesus and how we can live a disciplined faith. Discipline and self-control may not be attractive terms to you, but believers must persevere, stay alert, and be ready to act as the hands and feet of Jesus each and every day. So, although you may have heard it before, get ready to hear it again. Let’s start this New Year off right and prioritize our relationship with the Lord and make an impact in our community for His great name.
Are you ready?
