A New Year's Resolution

I WILL...

like Paul, forget those things which are behind and press forward;

like David, lift up mine eyes unto the hills from whence cometh my help;

like Abraham, trust implicitly in my God;

like Enoch, walk in daily fellowship with my heavenly Father;

like Jehosphaphat, prepare my heart to seek God;

like Moses, choose rather to suffer than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

like Daniel, commune with God at all times;

like Job, be patient under all circumstances;

like Caleb and Joshua, refuse to be discouraged because of superior numbers;

like Joseph, turn my back to all destructive advances;

like Gideon, advance even my friends be few;

like Aaron and Hur, uphold the hands of my spiritual leaders;

like Isaiah, consecrate myself to do God’s work;

like Andrew, strive to lead my brother to a closer walk with Christ;

like John, lean upon the bosom of the Master and imbibe of His Spirit;

like Stephen, manifest a forgiving spirit toward all who seek my hurt;

like Timothy, study the Word of God;

like the heavenly host, proclaim the message of peace on earth and good will toward all men;

like my Lord himself, overcome all earthly allurements by refusing to succumb to their enticements.

Realizing that I cannot hope to achieve these objectives by my own strength, I will rely upon Christ, for “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil. 4:13).

That is great. I like that post. I'll have to print that.

Bruce and I were laughing the other day about how y'all would sing parts during the happy birthday song. Honestly, I don't recall that, but he sure did get tickled thinking about it and that made me giggle. Anyway, you and family were certainly in our thoughts this Christmas weekend.
