New Year Resolutions
Pastor B.J. Knefley

Can you believe that it’s 2019? Well get used to it because it’s going to be around for a full year. I don’t know how you celebrated its arrival but I, like many, went to bed at our normal times knowing that it would arrive whether or not we were awake to see it.

With the advent of a new year, there are some who will take this time as a year of new beginnings. It will be a year of change, resolutions, hopes and dreams. Gym memberships increase; eating habits change; and exercise equipment is bought with the hopes of new things. Some like myself have realized that as much as one might hope for some of the change that these activities will bring, they rarely do. Soon we’re too busy to go to the gym, the exercise equipment become expensive cloth racks, and we’ve reverted back to our comfort food. Why is change so hard?

There are some who have no trouble instituting new things into their lives. I’m not one of those especially when it comes to food. Food is comfort, and I like the full feeling that it gives. I do know that if I don’t have the first bite of something then I’m good with not having any. Ice cream is one of those that if I don’t have the first spoonful I’ll never have the next. Ice cream can stay in the freezer for months with this behavior. But change overall is not easy and it takes a lot of attention to staying on task.

Although I don’t have any New Year resolutions, I do have hopes of change. The only way that these changes will happen is if I choose to focus on taking the steps that will bring about these changes each and everyday. Notice that it is a matter of choice. It won’t happen by wishing it would happen. I must each and every day to chose to do the things that will accomplish my goal. It doesn’t matter what the goal is, relationships, food, exercise, or health related choices you must choose each and everyday to do the things that will get you there. Soon, those choices will become a part of our everyday routine, and then the change will come. To start, choose a starting point and start. Think about it.
