Daily BITUB- “The New Year”
There will always be the opportunity for change. We will reflect upon the last year and make determinations of exactly what we deem that change to be. Many phrases will begin with "This year I'm going to..." and many others with "No more..." Thing is while our 2018 may have found us wanting more of one thing, certainly it also had its moments of needing less of other things. Reflecting on the "things" we want to change is never going to be enough. Change will happen once we realize that the real reflection we must see is our own. What did we do to impact our lives? What do we need to do to ensure we continue to do it? How will we approach the inevitable challenges that 2019 will bring? How will we show appreciation of God's presence, His blessings, His Grace and the beauty of today and the limitless possibilities of tomorrow? What does our reflection tell us when we truly look at it? 2018 may have ended, but 2019 is going to be as significant as we choose to make it... Just as every day has been and every day going forward can be. There will always be opportunity for change. So, don't make resolutions of what you want to do, make proclamations of what you will do with God's gift of life, with your many blessings, with that reflection looking back at you!
Here is to Believing in the Unbelievable beauty that was 2018 and the blessings of 2019 and beyond!
Happy New Year!
