Congratulations, you’ve made it to 2018, a new year! A new year often means new resolutions whether that may be eating healthier, stopping bad habits, going the extra mile toward your goals or whatever it may be.
A New Year always brings the opportunity to start fresh.
Maybe you need to forgive someone who did you wrong, or apologize for something done long ago; it’s never too late.
So, go for it.
Clean the slate.
Start fresh and begin this year on the right foot.
Maybe you want to pick up a book and read again for the first time in a while. Or maybe you want to create a new routine this year.
It seems super cliché and stereotypical, but the truth is that some people's’ new year’s resolutions are over before they’ve even started.
Don’t give up on yourself. Push yourself to do your absolute best.
You’re not alone because many people are in your very same boat right now.
It’s all about time management and prioritizing your tasks. Put first what you know needs to be done, but make sure you make some “you” time.
Time to decrease stress.
Time to enjoy life.
Time to debrief from everyday chaos.
You deserve it.
Now take a step back…….[PAUSE]......be true to this next question….
How much time of your day do you devote to your Lord and Savior?
Do you think that’s adequate?
I know, personally, I don’t spend enough time talking to Him. Just sitting with Him each day.
Our pastor, John Smith at The Church at Severn Run, gave a great sermon on 1 Kings 19 about this very topic last weekend. He shared how in the past year he had suffered from alcohol addiction and going through 28 days of in-patient treatment he was somewhat forced to be still.

In that time in treatment, he learned to just be still with God each day. After forming that new habit, he now starts each day with quiet time with God.
So, what will you do this year to be still with God this year?Do you have some things in mind that you are going to do this year. Whatever it may be, start this year out strong. Have faith throughout every day and begin 2018 by Living Scripture Strong.
