I got an email on yesterday from a young lady who encourages me and she was looking for the devotional that I did on this specific topic a few years ago only for me to discover, I didn’t do the actual devotional on this topic but it was mentioned it in. But on this day, it just happen this topic fits perfectly. See, as this old year closes and a new year approaches we often find ourselves making resolutions to lose weight, save money, stop drinking, stop cursing (cussing), stop smoking, start going to church more, settle down, blah, blah, etc., yet we rarely keep them passed the second of January. So on this 30th of December, I charge each of you to instead of making a resolution, make a change. Yea, make a change in your life to do better. If you know you need to stop smoking for the sake of your lungs and those around you, do it. If you know you need to stop drinking for the sake of your liver, do it. If you know you need the Lord for the sake of your soul, seek Him while He can be found. But baby don’t join the gym because it’s what everybody is doing this time of the year, you’re wasting your money. Join the gym because you want to change your life and be healthy. Don’t go to church because it’s the first Sunday of the New Year but go to church because you are changing your life for the better. Don’t make a resolution, make a change. A resolution is temporary, a change should be permanent. A resolution is momentary, a change should be long-lasting. A resolution is passing; a change should be a lifetime.
