Happy New Year (I think)

I am not big on change. I struggle with it more than I should and I honestly wish I could just yield to it, without any fight. I'm trying...

So it's 2012. Being the worrier that I am, I feel myself trying to worry about SOMETHING. Be it taxes, my health or that dog-gone HVAC (furnace and AC) that we need to replace. I really need to refocus and ground myself in the word of God.

Every year in Jan, I try to go over the 12 steps of Alanon - as a refresher.

Jan. Step One = We admitted we were powerless over ______that our lives had become unmanageable. "I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out." (Romans 7:18) 

For over 30 years, I have tried to follow and work a Christian 12 step program. Keeps me sane and brings me serenity when I let go, and Let God.

So for this New Year, once again,  I hope I can just let whatever is going to happen, happen and that I can live through it with my head high - giving God all the glory - no matter what!

  1. I'm like you; not much on change and a worrier. I do find the promises of God does help me keep a bit grounded about things and his word too keeps me planted in the truth that he is there for me, no matter what, and he knows what I'm going through and what I will be going through in the year ahead. May it be a good year for you and yours!
