In a few short days Americans nationwide will be ringing in the New Year, and making the notorious list of New Year Resolutions. It is a fascinating manifestation that occurs with the beginning of a new year, initializing the urge to prepare for the impending days and months for the New Year that is to come. This list of resolutions, or perhaps items that people may or may not actually attempt, are diligently focused upon and developed for what would seem to be of the utmost importance. What types of resolutions do Americans tend to gear towards? Does it really matter? For the only resolutions that may hold precedence are the ones that will be acted upon and ensured to be completed.
Nonetheless, the majority of these resolutions are only created due to the mere hype of media and the uproar of fallacious hope.
There is no validity in the claims of such a list of New Year resolutions. Needless to say, this is not a negation made against the avowal of resolutions for the New Year, but rather an observed preconception that the majority of people, who partake in this activity, conveniently overlook. The start of a new year implies a clean slate, and the hope for a better year to come. Some people share this start with a loved one or friend, and others just continue on as if the New Year was just another day. Regardless of how you decide to spend New Year’s Eve, and the beginning of the year 2015, ensure you remember our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
After the hustle and bustle of Christmas, and as everyone was scrambling about buying presents, and sending off cards to family and friends, the meaning of Christmas is often lost. Then, following the birthday of our Lord Jesus, humanity awaits the coming of the New Year. This time of year moves by so quickly, most likely due to how busy things get during this season. The holiday of Christmas, and the coming of the New Year move faster than expected and then they are all lost. Once the tree is put away, and the lights come down, Christmas is vanished from our very eyes, and even our hearts.
We must not forget our Lord Jesus, and ensure to remember Him each and every day. Sure Christmas is a beautiful time when all come together in celebration of our Lord Jesus’s birth. Although, we should be uniting in Christ all the time. Consider this for the impending New Year that is among us. Ready yourself for this New Year, and be sure to keep our Lord Jesus securely placed in your hearts, minds, and souls. Use this New Year as another year to strengthen your love for Jesus, and your loyalty to Him. Try to make our Lord Jesus the top, and utmost priority.
As the New Year approaches, stand still for a moment. Consider how you could incorporate Jesus into your life. Remember to thank our Lord for all His tender love, patience, and compassion that He has for us. These pure gifts are given to us in return for our love and belief in Him. Think about how much our Lord does for you. Take these thoughts into consideration when creating this list of resolutions. Learn to prioritize our Lord Jesus, our loving God.
