Starting the New Year Well

New-year-s-resolution

Happy new year!

I hope the year has started well for you.

At the beginning of any new season it's a good thing to pause, reflect and prepare for what lies ahead. Check out my recent BLOG post on Getting Ready for the New Year for a few ideas on how best to do that.

The apostle Paul had this to say about our attitude towards life and time:

"Be very careful, then, how you live - not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is." (Eph 5:15-17. NIV)

“Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” [Prov.21:5. NLT]

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” [Jer. 29:11. NLT]

“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” 

“Today’s actions determine tomorrow’s achievements.”
