3 Commitments for a Happy New Year

The new year is only a few weeks old, but I think it's time to take a look at the start you are off too before the year slips out of control.  Too me resolutions, without commitments are simply a recipe for failure!  Resolutions with comment can be powerful tools. 

Without the commitment to resolve, when the excitement subsides, you're back to the same old habits.  What we need are life changing commitments!  These take time and effort, but are worth it if they result in your resolution to make positive lifestyle changes!  

3 Commitments are a must:
  1. Leave behind the bad ATTITUDES!  Those negative attitudes have to go!  Commit to give the Holy Spirit control of your thought life! 
  2. Let go of the bad ASSOCIATIONS!  Some people are in your life for a reason, and some only for a season!  Commit to being the best friend you can, but don't commit to having the most friends you can!
  3. Loosen the grip of bad ACTIONS!  Don't let last year's bad actions dictate your actions for the new year!  Quit holding on to the things that have potential to destroy your relationships with family, friends, associates and primarily the Lord!  The gain is never worth the pain!
This is where it all starts, but it must start somewhere!  These commitments are more important than loosing weight and making money!  They will help you build a healthy foundation for a new life filled with good attitudes, good associations, and good actions!  It's not too late to make this year a happy new year if you make these commitments...NOW!!

Please commit to see the movie "Courageous"!
