So last night at midnight you said “Happy New Year” and hugged your loved ones and everyone cheered, and were as happy as ever, right? Until you wake up the next morning and remember that your life is still the same. Your marriage is still broken, you are still in debt, you are still sick, you are still in the same situation that you were in 2018.

It’s not happy wishes or fun and excitement that guarantee you a good year. It’s the effort that you put in. If you really want this year to be the best year ever, you must give more of yourself this year than you ever have before. You must give yourself more to God, you must put more effort into your career, more effort into your family, you must give more. 

Jesus said:

“Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Matthew 5:41”

Jesus is teaching us to do more! This year has to be a year that you add more to everything you do. Don’t be the same person that you were last year. You have 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days and 8760 hours ahead of you to give more of yourself. 

Sacrifice your will and give yourself 100% to God. Make it a year of plus. A year that you constantly “go the extra mile”. And you will have the best year ever.

Blessed New Year to all of you!

May the God of the Bible Bless You
