We’re 17 days into 2014, which means you probably started turning a blind eye to your New Year’s resolutions about 16 days ago (give or take a few slices of pie).
All of those fanciful dreams of shrinking your waistline, tightening your budget, and decreasing the clutter were quickly exchanged with nachos at midnight, a shiny new credit card, and boxes of old knickknacks stealthily shoved into the dark abyss that is your bedroom closet.
Instead of disappointing yourself with short-term resolutions based on shrinking areas of your life—make 2014 the year you resolve to grow. Grow closer to God, closer to your family, and closer to the person Christ wants you to be.
Don’t just make this a yearly resolution, though—make it a lifelong pursuit. To do this, you need to make prayer and devotions a daily commitment. Together, these two activities keep Christ on your mind throughout the day, open you up to the awesomeness of the Word, bring you closer to the people you study Scripture with, and train you to talk with God all the time.
“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” —Romans 15:4
