As for me, (opinion alert) I don't have a history of making resolutions, and to tie a year to one word seems confining... like I would only view events wearing those glasses. As a result, New Year's Day changed nothing for me. I just have to remember to write 2012 on my checks.
My moment of enlightenment came in December. It promises to be a moment that will transform not just this year, but the rest of my life.
While pondering the details of the Christmas story, I came across a verse in Jeremiah that was God's word to said prophet regarding the ultimate goal for Israel - "my people shall be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord." (31:14)
I have taken the last phrase of the verse - "be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord." - and made it my constant companion.
Disappointed? Frustrated? Happy? Angry? Sorrowful? Quiet?
Be satisfied with my goodness, saith the Lord. Jeremiah 31:14
