My New Year’s Resolution for 2019 and Beyond

I have not made a New Year’s Resolution for a very long time!

A New Year’s Resolution is a promise to yourself and like promises and pie crusts, they are easily made and easily broken, to paraphrase Jonathan Swift. This year will be different, I promise!

I have thought about this for several days now, and have decided to make a “commitment” to my 2019 New Year’s Resolution to really put it into practice every day for not just 2019, but for the rest of my life; it’s that important to me!

What I desire is to start every day with one thought and let that thought lay a foundation for, and shape the balance of the day; I can summarize that thought in these words;

I am a created being who exists by and for the Lord Jesus Christ.

It is my heartfelt desire to let this thought serve as the premise on which I build my life as long as I shall live (which just happens to be forever)!

15 Christ is the visible image of the invisible God.
    He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,
16 for through him God created everything
    in the heavenly realms and on earth.
He made the things we can see
    and the things we can’t see—
such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world.
    Everything was created through him and for him.
17 He existed before anything else,
    and he holds all creation together. Colossians 1:15-17

These verses in Colossians are my delight and my joy; I exult in the thought of them!
