Pray, Fast, Read
It is so interesting how nothing really changes tonight. The clock strikes midnight and a new year is born. We chunk the old calendar and hang up the new one (after we have transposed the important dates).
Mentally, this gives us a fresh start. This is healthy and good. I have no problems with it. I use the new calendar to refresh my goals, analyze how things went last year, read over my journals, plan out schemes for new dreams.
I commit to praying, fasting, and reading the Bible in 2008. I want everything to be laid on that foundation. I know that if my relationship with Jesus Christ is intimate, it will make me a better husband, father, teacher, lover, friend.
I am excited about your quest for intimacy with God also. How will this effect the peripheries of your life? Intimacy with God can do nothing but improve and empower you.
