New Year, Better Me

Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
                    John 14:12‭-‬13 NKJV
The idea of a new year’s resolution has always troubled me. I have a problem with making promises to myself that I know I will not keep. I shy away from them and say my change begins today and not at the top of the calendar for the new year. So for the past 7 years I have not made any “resolutions”.

I realise now that I have been short changing myself because no resolution for me means excuses not to try. Not to seek better or pursue those things that honestly scare me. So for 2018 (deep breath in) I am going to pursue every active “I can’t” and “I will never get over…”. 

These past few months I have started to pray in the spirit and God is revealing new possibilities that I had never even dreamed of and the quite honestly freak me out. Then He reminded me that I myself alone can not do them, but with His power living on the inside of me I can lay hold of anything I am bold enough to have faith for. 

Armed with this new perspective I am about to go after my biggest giants with my ears wide open listening for the wisdom of the Holy spirit. He is not there just to comfort me but to do greater works through me. Only for His glory.
