Every year about this time we begin thinking about what new way we might proceed in the new year that could produce a different result. From relationships to worklife there is always that desire that somehow we could move beyond the mistakes and pain of the past and glean a different result!
God is the author and instigator of the fresh start. Clear as can be comes the invitation from God to us, “Come unto me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28, NIV). Problem is that it can’t be treated as a consult; the definitive change that God promises in Christ comes only through an on-going relationship. A relationship defined by God’s parameters fully seasoned with grace as opposed to a relationship bound to fail based on our terms!
A different result can result and will most assuredly take place, IF we take a different approach. It’s all about changing drivers! Be a passenger for a change and let God drive by making Jesus Both Savior AND Lord. Talk about a reload that works? This is what you have been looking for, God bless you with the courage to try it on! Blessings and Peace,
