This is the last posting for this blog. I made a commitment to write everyday in 2012. Today is the last day. I chose to use the same photograph I used on January 1, 2012 when I started this blog – the sundial at the waterfront in Grand Haven, MI.
Today people look back on the year which is ending and think about what they’ve done or didn’t do. They remember good and bad times.
Today resolutions are also being made for the new year. Some will be kept. Others will be forgotten in a matter of weeks or even days.
We have the chance to make 2013 better than 2012. Granted, there are many things over which we will have no control. However, we can control how we will deal with them and if we try to deal with them alone or not.
“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
How will you spend the time God gives you in 2013? Will you wallow in self pity, letting depression take over? That’s what Satan wants you to do. He wants your focus to be totally on you. When that happens it’s easy for depression to set in when things don’t go the way you want.
The alternative is to focus on God and His son, Jesus Christ. There will still be some bad times. There’s no doubt about that. The difference will be in how you handle those times. Instead of saying, “poor me”, you can rejoice in what God has given you. You can know you are not alone.
Maintain a positive attitude in 2013. Keep your eyes on God. Let 2013 be a life-changing year for you. All time comes from God. Use it wisely and to the fullest. HAPPY NEW YEAR and have a new year in Christ.
