Resolution “I want a better year”

Okay…it is here…it is finally here…out with the old and in with the new…the new year… is here…Happy New Year…Happy Happy Happy New Year… now what..?

Maybe I need to resolve to do better this new year. 

Let’s see…what can I do?  Okay…I am over-weight…I could resolve to weigh less…Um…     I’ll eat less and exercise more, how about that……or I know… I owe to much Money…so I will resolve to spend less and work harder…and just maybe I will earn more…

One thing is certain…If I want a better year…I am going to need something to Change.

 Perhaps a New Year’s Resolution..!  The Babylonians made promises to their gods at the start of each year that they would return borrowed objects and pay their debts.   The Romans began each year by making promises to the god janus, for whom the month of January is named.   In Medieval times, the knights took the “peacock vow” at the end on the Christmas season each year to re-affirm their commitment to chivalry.  And even today about 45 percent of Americans make ‘New Years Resolutions” …However recent studies show that only about 52% of those making a resolution have confidence that they will actually succeed and only about 12% actually do.

That is not going to work for me…I said I needed Change not Chance..!

Webster defines Resolution as follows; 3a: something that is resolved as in <I made a resolution to mend my ways> I may need to mend my ways…but a 12% chance is just not good enough for me…I think what I need is another WORD..!  So I am going to change the word RESOLUTION like this…I ‘ll remove the S like this…RE_ OLUTION… and replace it with a V like this…and there it is…my new word… REVOLUTION…that’s it… I want a revolution in my life…a New Year’s Revolution… I want a changed life…

Webster basically says it like this…Revolution is a sudden, radical, or complete change… a fundamental change in my way of thinking… out with the old and in with the new… so to speak…a leadership change…a new decision maker change…Hmmm…

THIS NEWS JUST IN…I have been stuck right here…unable to finish this blog for days. Writers block I guess.  I could not find the words to say what I knew that I wanted to say…and I was frustrated.  After all…this is a New Year’s Blog and it is already the 10th of January.  It’s time to get er done..!

Then this morning about 10 o’clock a friend asked me to come pray with him and a man who had just minutes before…re-accepted and re-invited Jesus Christ back into his life.

He had good parents that believed in God…he first accepted Christ when he was a teenager…and then he lost his way in rebellion, alcohol, drugs among many other things…then today after some twenty years of trying to fight his way back…TODAY he gave up his fight and asked a friend for help…and today it is as if he has been Born Again…

Today he did’nt make a resolution to mend his ways…He had already tried and failed at that at least a hundred…maybe even a thousand times before.

Today he started a Revolution…Today he surrendered his personal government to God…not in some obscure private secret way…but publicly…and in front of witnesses..!

And because he has asked the Lord of Lords to be his King…he is being born again Today…he has new life right now…and new hope for tomorrow.  Already God is telling him “I Love You”…

Today a man was Born Again into the Kingdom of God…a man of great value…a man Jesus agreed to die for…a man created with purpose…for the Glory of The Lord..!

…Today at 10 o’clock He called me and I answered..!

Now that is what I call a REVOLUTION..!

  6. You are much better at your type of Revolution than I am….I’ve never been very successful at changing a person mind or evoking a change of habit in a person, in fact if you want the exact opposite result then send me in, I’m real good at that. When the Lord does come back, as a warrior and not as a man of peace, then I’ll see a massive radical revolution of change, for then there will be such a stampede to the cross that it will make the rioting crush after Cabbage Patch Kids in a Wal-Mart look like a Boy Scout Parade. You have a talent and a blessing….KEEP WRITING!!!
