Well, it’s 2013. I had only just managed to get used to 2012. Lots of people do a reminiscent post round about now, or else one full of resolutions.
My resolve is to not make any resolutions this year, it sets me up for failure because I end up putting all my trust in myself to turn my life around. Yeah, I want to lose weight, I want to be better at housework and more disciplined in my reading times, but I’m not defined by those things. By making resolutions, I define myself in those terms – if I don’t do the things I say I will, I have failed at being a slim person, a good housewife and studious.
I’m not putting my trust in myself this New Year, I’m putting it in Someone who will never fail at conforming me to His likeness.
