I Can Revise 1

It was my birthday last week. I had a good time celebrating with friends, eating good food and thinking about the year that has gone and the year that will come. Some people dread birthdays as they can feel like a reminder that we may not be where we would like to be. However, there are so many people that were heading one way and switched up their life to great success. It’s important to remember the life lesson made in this video about Anthony Joshua, ‘Nobody ever moved forward standing still.’  

 



If you want to live differently, it's important to stop and think about what you would like to change. I often come back to this verse in Romans 12:2:

 

Don't copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

 

Remember, we don’t have to wait for a new year to think about change. I want to encourage you to take a moment to think about the following questions. How can I be more of a blessing to those around me? How can I care less about what other people think? How can I make more time for the things and people I love? How can I make the most out of this year?  

Dear God, we want to be people who make the most of our time on earth.

Help us admit where we have gone off course, and to start again where we need.

Give us humility and courage to keep going forward.

Amen.
