I recently read about starting your New Year’s resolutions early, so this morning I figured out a Bible reading and study plan, created a budget, and determined my exercise and reading goals. I have a couple other plans for this year that I need to think through some more, but I had already been thinking about these things during the month of December, so I thought, “Why not start early?”
I wouldn’t call the things I listed new resolutions, because I strive to be disciplined in these areas all the time, but I needed to refocus and make a plan for how I want to accomplish these things. Some of my goals for this year include reading the ESV in one year; making extra payments on my school bill, so I can finish paying it off before May; running a 1/2 marathon in February; and reading a book a week.
What are some of your New Year’s resolutions? Do you have any brand-spanking new resolutions, or are you like me and resolve to do the same things every year!
