Hello my Dears…Welcome to my Monday Blog!
What a wonderful birthday I just celebrated!! Oh no, not mine…His!! I’m pretty sure YOU were at the celebration, too!! This is the one birthday we never want to miss!! Why is this particular birthday so worth celebrating, anyway? Well, it’s this holy birthday that changed the world forever —for EVERYONE!!
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
Most of us refer to Him as the Son of God, JESUS CHRIST; however, He’ll answer to any and all of the above— We need only to call on Him in earnest—Anytime!
When we choose to make our lives better and truly live in Jesus Christ, we are capable of achieving incredible things. I believe the biggest obstacle we human beings have to overcome while attempting to “make things happen” is FEAR. You name it, we have fear written all over us.Think about your own personal situation…it’s a fact, Jack—Fear prevents us from trusting when we need to, far more than we want to admit. It’s true.
For the New Year, what if we all reflect on 2016 for a minute and consider all those New Year’s resolutions we made last December— As they say in the movies now, “how’d that work out for ya’?”
Here’s a few thoughtful and logical suggestions I found for all of us today, in hopes of assisting us with our 2017 New Year’s Resolutions (& I need them more than anybody!!):
- Get to know the Superstar, Jesus Christ!! (this is the most important achievement you will ever make in your Life!)
- Don’t sit on the couch and wait for it.
- Go out.
- Make a change.
- Smile more.
- Be excited.
- Do new things.
- Throw away what you’ve been cluttering.
- Unfollow negative people on social media or anywhere else they may pop-up.
- Go to bed early.
- Wake up early.
- Be fierce.
- Don’t gossip.
- Show more gratitude.
- Do things that challenge you.
- Be brave.
- Be deserving of Jesus’ undying Love, because He wants you to be happy on His Earth (this is the second most important achievement you will ever make in your Life!).
This list is going on my dresser mirror and will remain there for the New Year—I promise myself I’ll take my own advice and leave the rest up to you-know-who:
our Superstar, Jesus Christ (the Miracle Worker…allow Him to work miracles in your Life).
God is Good! God is Great!! Always!!!
Happy New Year!!
I love you all,
La Vie est Belle – Life is beautiful…even with all its perfect imperfections.
