Goodbye 2012, hello 2013! Happy New Year to all, may the Lord bless you this year and show you His great love.
I don't do the "resolutions" thing; rather, I try to set goals for myself that are continuous. One of my goals is in John 13:34-35.
"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
I want to make it my goal to be more loving towards others, more compassionate to their needs, more caring about those around me. I want to ask myself, "What Would Jesus Do?" and really mean it. I admit I'm not the most compassionate person; I'm more of a "suck it up and deal with it" type, but I realize that's not the loving approach. Obviously there are people who abuse our trust and compassion, but most folks just want someone to understand, listen, and encourage. I want to be that person.
I'm off to see what 2013 has in store for me! God bless.
