Ah! The hustle and bustle of The Holidays is slowly wrapping up. As I reflect over the last couple months, it makes me smile! Wonderful times with Family and friends! Eating WAY too much! Celebrations of Joy! Laughing and loving! Now it’s January. A new year. 2016. A new day, a new season, a new beginning.
Fresh desire, renewed goals and a sense of ” I can do this” are gripping me!
One of my favorite childhood books was, and still is, “The Little Engine That Could.” In this book a train needs help over the mountain. Many Engines go by and do not help. They all have excuses. Then a little engine agrees to help and begins to pull the train up the mountain…saying “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!!!!” And it does! Philippians 4:13 (KJV) says “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Let’s make up our minds in this New Year that we WILL……
Accomplish great things! With God on our side we CAN! “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!!”
Can somebody say “Amen?”
