lasting influence

new day resolution

DSCF2319"Who we choose to become and how we choose to live every day creates a trajectory for everything else."  --Jerry Sittser

The New Year, with all of its opportunities, questions, joys and challenges, is right around the corner.  These waning days of 2011 are rife with plans, resolutions and prayerful pleas for a glimpse of God's will.  In charting a course for a desired target on December 31, 2012 we would do well to remember that the path (trajectory) is made up of 366  (Leap Year) points along the way.  Each point is a day and each point along the way is important.  (My mathematical friends tell me that each point along a trajectory is critical to arrival at the desired target or destination.)

I am convinced that each day of my life is important to God. 

So... no New Year's Resolutions for me this year.  I am going with a "New Day's Resolution."  Each and every day of 2012 starts here...

But seek first his Kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 

Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
