It’s just past January 1st, and that means one thing. New Years’ resolutions. Why are these some of the hardest promises that we make every year?

It might be because we promise things that we know we can’t keep. Or maybe even more than that, our promises aren’t rooted in the right things.

When is the last time you and Jesus made a resolution together?

Whether or not you made one this year, consider bringing Him into your decisions. When He is at your side, you’ll be able to accomplish the difficult, but Jesus will help you do the impossible. He might even help you redefine your goal that will create a positive impact on your life for years to come. Bringing Him in on the decision will also help guard your heart against things that are pulling you away from him and deepen your bond.

So this year, don’t make a New Years’ resolution. Make a goal with Jesus and work together to accomplish it.
