… is that many of us only hold on to it for a short term. Maybe for the first few days or weeks of the year, when in fact, it’s supposed to be a lasting goal. For instance, if you were to compare last year’s to today’s, how many of those resolutions are the same? I’m pretty sure most of them ressemble each other. Why? Because we want and expect an immediate change. Our tendency is to get impatient, give up, and rely on the following year to improve. But change takes time and perseverance. And who ever told us we would have a next year to look forward to? So rather than deciding on making a new year’s resolution, why don’t we opt for a day by day resolution. If we do want some bad habits to disappear, or see plans fulfilled, it shouldn’t only be considered on new year’s eve. It should be taken into account daily. If we are to make a resolution, let’s strive to actually keep it until we succeed.
You say, strength is found in weakness Peace in incompleteness So why do I hold on?
You look, For a heart that’s open For beauty in the broken So why am I withdrawn? My soul’s screaming out To be found in You Spirit draw me to my knees Captivate all of me, all of me Here before You honestly Captivate all of me, all of me
I’m so messy and distracted Undisciplined and tactless Here on the inside
I thought age would tell the secrets But the secrets are still secret And the years are passing by
