A new year means a wealth of opportunities for change, happiness, perspective, growth, etc. On this Wednesday which just so happens to be New Year’s Eve, which five resolutions are topping your list?
Change. An aspiring politician and educator knocked on our door the other evening while we were eating dinner. My hub answered the door and talked with him briefly before being handed a flyer highlighting his views on issues. What was interesting to note was how there was no mention of his being Republican, Democrat, Independent, or other, and I thought that rocked.
The point, at least as I inferred it to be, is the need for change regardless of which belief system you align yourself.
Isn’t this true for all problems in this world? Does it matter whom does what? Shouldn’t it simply matter that something . . . anything is being done at all to bring about change for the better of all?
While reading a post written by Lisa-Jo Baker the other day, she mentioned a friend in financial trouble who needed a vehicle to stay afloat for her family’s livelihood. The small group at this woman’s church agreed to pray for her, but, as Lisa-Jo Baker pointed out, what she really needed was a car, which, it turns out, is exactly what Baker did for this woman . . . loaned her a car. Goosebumps ran up and down my arms after reading this. This is change in action and has inspired me to think more along those lines. . .instead of simply praying, do. . . for change.
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed . . .
1st Corinthians 15:51
