In past years I have made them, many, and usually fail at them before February ever rolls around. Have you been there?
My 2021 Resolution was: To live my life content in Jesus because He is sufficient, all I need, enough.
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.
But of the Son He says, “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever, And the righteous scepter is the scepter of His kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness above Your companions.” And, “You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the works of Your hands; They will perish, but You remain; And they all will become old like a garment, And like a mantle You will roll them up; Like a garment they will also be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not come to an end.”
Hebrews 1:1-4, 8-12 NASB
There were many challenges, much to be learned about myself and about God, and some victories. God truly is sufficient, everything I need but this is a resolution I will continue to work on in the years to come as I surrender more and more of my will to His will.
🌹I will continue to strive in my belief that God truly is sufficient because He is.
Continually Seeking Him,
