And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24 New International Version (NIV)
I have always liked that verse from Hebrews, because it so clear as to what must be done. We must “consider”, think about, how we can encourage one another. Toward Love and good deeds.
I would like to encourage you today to make some resolutions and then follow through with them. So many people say they don’t ‘try’ any more at new years, to make a resolution because they ‘know’ they won’t keep it. Don’t be like them! Try anyway. You can and will get farther if you take a step in the direction you want to go. Change Counts. Your change is what will make your life different and better.
Here are a couple of my resolutions (some are too private to put on here). I may not keep them, but I intend to and I resolve to.
- Lose 10 pounds by March 31, 2008, I will do this by eating 1700 calories a day. I calculate that I burn about 2100 a day, so I will burn 400 calories of fat. About 3500 calories of fat = 1 pound, so I should lose 10.28 pounds in 90 days.
- I will have a considerable amount of content on my site by March 31, content that I created. This is hard to measure, but I think I know what needs to be done.
