Living Strong: Getting a Fresh S.T.A.R.T. in the New Year
In just a few days, January 1, 2015 will be here, and a new year will be ahead of us. (By the way, do you remember Y2K? That seems like yesterday, not 15 years ago!) Well, we made it through the “millennium bug” of 2000, and here we are 15 years later. As you prepare for 2015, here are some thoughts to consider from my friend, Tony Cook. Happy New Year Victory family and friends!
Stop making excuses. - Proverbs 28:13 - A man who refuses to admit his mistakes can never be successful. But if he confesses and forsakes them, he gets another chance. (The Living Bible)
Take an inventory of your life. - 2 Corinthians 13-5 - Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith.
Act in faith. - Matthew 9:29 - “According to your faith let it be to you.”
Refocus - Philippians 3:13 - ...but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead…
Trust - Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust in the LORD with all you heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
