Five,Four,Three,Two,One! My New Year’s resolution will be to loose 100 pounds,stop smoking,stop drinking,get into shape,eat healthy. “Two weeks later,” OH,I give up”.
In life its easy to say things or set high goals but as time passes things get difficult and giving in to temptations seems to be the only way out.
A Christian life,like new year resolutions,feels simple. It is all black and white while at the altar where “we know how to live and what direction to take”,but after church,”somewhere between the “Altar and the Door” everything turns gray again. At the Altar Jesus expects us to leave everything that weighs on our shoulders to Him and not to leave with any when we walk out of the door. At the Altar we are full of confidence, we know who we are,what we are supposed to do,which road in life to take and how we are supposed to live. But the frustration comes however when we leave the Altar and have to take the things we left there with us. We face disappointments when we try to live the right path yet still falling into sin and temptation and having to come back again for forgiveness.
Don’t you think its Exhausting? Well I DO. But we can’t GIVE UP.
