New Year's Resolutions

Yup.  It's time. 

So here are a few suggestions.

Just in case you're having trouble deciding how you could improve yourself in 2013... 

Love your enemies, bless those that curse you, 
do good to those that hate you, 
and pray for those who spitefully use you.
Matthew 5:44

Have fellowship with Him.
1 John 1:6

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.
Ecclesiastes 9:10

Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise,
and apply your heart to My knowledge.
Proverbs 22:17

Delight in the law of the Lord
and in His law meditate day and night.
Psalm 1:2

Do justly, 
love mercy,
and walk humbly with your God.
Micah 6:8

Be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
Isaiah 25:9

If you lack wisdom {and who doesn't?}
ask of God.
James 1:5

Live in the Spirit;
walk in the Spirit.
Galatians 2:25


And to give you courage, in case any of those seem hard, here's a New Year's Promise for you:

"Fear not: for I have redeemed you,
I have called you by your name
You are mine.
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, 
you shall not be burned;
nor shall the flame scorch you."
Isaiah 43:1-2


Because after all:

"Thus far the Lord has helped us."
1 Samuel 7:12
