As I write to close out 2016, I reflect on many ups and downs. On a positive note, we welcomed a precious little girl into the world. It seems as if most of the year was focused on her arrival. Shortly after that, God began to open doors for me to preach and minister in various churches after a drought that lasted almost a year. Now 2016 is pretty much in the rear view mirror.
What do you want for 2017? I’m not talking about a slimmer body, 6-pack, tummy tuck, Botox, etc. I’m not talking about cars, houses, and earthly possessions. A fellow blogger challenged me in this area by reflecting on his goal for 2016 and how he rated. I want to ask myself and you, “Who do you want to be in 2017?” For clarification, I’m not asking if you want to alter your gender or any such thing. I’m talking about character. How do you want to be more like Jesus in 2017?
It’s time we pray and ask the Lord who He wants us to be in this new year. If you really want to know, He will answer. May we all become more like Jesus in 2017.
