Every year, I make resolutions. Every year come February, I break them. So this year, I have decided not to make resolutions, but to make decisions. Decisions that I will stand by throughout the year. Decisions that will benefit me, that will enable me to become a better person, and that will bring me further in my walk with the Lord.
I will read the Word everyday. Even if it is only 1 verse. I will read it.
I will pray every day. Even if it is while I am folding laundry, washing dishes, or just sitting still.
I will strive to be a better wife. Even if it means doing something I really don't like.
I will strive to be a better mother. Even if that means playing with Play-doh or watching Drake and Josh.
I will strive to be a better friend. Even if that means hearing the same story again and again and giving the same advice again and again.
I will not think of myself as much. Even if that means no more scrapbooking supplies for a while.
I will get out of debt. Even if that means not going to the movies or out to eat as much.
These are things that I have decided to do to make my life better. These are decisions that I can stick to. These are not resolutions that can be broken. These are decisions that I have purposed in my heart to uphold.
