New Year's Resolutions

Beau here. Nat and the kids headed out of a trip this morning, so I am solo for a few days. Spent this morning studying John 1-2 and listening to a couple sermons from Chan. Got me to thinking a bit about New Year's Resolutions. I am not in to that more years...but toyed with idea this morning.

Normal question we ask is "what do I want different (start or stop) in 2009?" This morning I turned the question to "what does GOD want me to be about in 2009?" You see, "not my will, but Your will be done..."

So as I looked back on recent weeks and what I have wrestled with, the following resolutions come to mind.

1. Bible study - In recent weeks I have been wrapping up The Journey for 2008 and outlining a plan for 2009. So I have a plan which I anxiously started on Christmas Eve with launching a three month study of the Gospel of John to be followed by some Old Testament minor prophets that revolve around the topic of discouragement.

2. Family Discipleship - I want to keep doing what I am doing with the kids (specifically daily Bible study and capturing teachable moments) and continue growing as a daddy. As a husband, I have a lot more that needs to be done, and I have been studying the marriage topic in Scripture to align my heart with God's. As God reveals, I need to respond.

3. What else - This is the exciting part where I get to wait and see. Don't know what God has in store, but I want to hear, respond, and see God's glory.

Happy New Year!
