I can almost see the New Year


The food for the holidays was very good. I have started thinking about how long it will take to lose the pounds I gained. If it would only be as easy to lose weight as it was to gain it. Have you started rehearsing those new year resolutions yet? How many do you think you are going to keep? There was a cartoon today, where one person was asking the other when was the best time to join those hard to get into health gyms? The other guy said February 1st. All those new year resolutions don’t last very long. They are not worth much, because it takes convictions to really change. You must believe and trust that your decision is the right one. I have done Daniel’s fast three times in my life. And I will tell you a truth, it gets harder each time. If you don’t know Daniel’s fast is 21 days on, in my case, water. The first time I did it, I lost 55lbs. I kept it off for about 10 years. Then I slowly gain the weight back, but it took almost 20 years. There is nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight or learn a new skill. It is the follow through that really counts. I can almost see the new year. It is just around the corner. I am hopeful that this year will be better than, let say the last few years. And it will be if you commit yourself to the truth and follow after God. I don’t want to talk about the other path, because it is just hurtful. Turn around and look at the new year. It is here already.
