Dream Year

As 2015 comes to a close I am plagued with the thought of what I really want from the new year. I love resolutions, and I get specific and detailed when I make mine. But as of late, what I’ve realized is that in the end we usually just want to the perfect year.

With a new year we resolve to find the perfect job, the perfect relationship, the perfect home/car, etc. We all know that perfection is unattainable but that doesn’t mean we cease to want it. In a nutshell, perfection is our ultimate resolution for the new year. But the world’s definition of perfection means nothing without God.

I’ve found that my dream job, guy, or home/car can still be a nightmare if it wasn’t sent from God. Even when we come from a sincere place in wanting those things, it means nothing if they aren’t Heaven sent.

Although I have my resolutions, I really want to keep in mind that none of what I have on my list matters if it isn’t what God wants for me. The fact is, a dream without God can only be a nightmare.

  1. Thank you for sharing. I few days ago I invested in a new Bible as my old one is falling apart and highlighted in so many places … the print was also getting smaller …

    In the intro of one of the books I picked up on 3 words. I shared my thoughts on it on Facebook just now.

    ‘I read this yesterday.

    It’s a simple sentence with only 3 words; and as such can easily be dismissed or forgotten …

    I honestly believe that (as a Christian) it holds the key to success for 2016 and beyond.

    If you take your walk with the Lord seriously, and depend upon Him to lead, guide and provide for you in all things, then please take it to heart:-

    “Obedience precedes Blessings.” ‘

    I wanted to share that because I think it fits in with what you posted.

    Thank you for your writings. Enjoying and learning from them.
