The R Word

January 5, 2009

Seek first his kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 6:33

 

New Year’s is continuously linked with that nasty word…resolutions.  We all make them, we all break them. 

 

We are less than a week into January and I suspect that some of us have already broken the promises we made ourselves on January first.  Which is why I no longer make resolutions, per se.  I like to think of them as goals, or areas on which to focus. 

 

Whatever you call them, at the top of every mom’s list should be a deeper relationship with God.  There is not one among us that has become like Christ in every action, every thought. In every minute of every day. 

 

We already know the way to be more like Christ is to spend more time in His presence.  We know that simply setting the alarm clock a little earlier and getting up when it calls will ensure that this time happens.  Yes, we know there is nothing more important.  And yet.

 

Anytime is a good time to take a look at your relationship with God, but the start of a whole new year just seems to beg for an honest assessment. 

 

Are you spending enough time without distractions in His presence?  Do you spend time listening, not just talking?  Are you prepared to let His guidance shape your day?

 

Today I just want to encourage you to make the time to connect with Jesus.  There is no goal more worthy.
