A New Start

As the New Year approaches, I am confronted with the usual "New Years Resolution" hype with the knowledge that I have never once kept my resolutions. And I have spent the last several months with the realization that I just let life happen to me. I kind of go through life with no plan or goals, just trying to get through the day. It is depressing to realize that I have spent over twenty years of adulthood this way.

I am realizing that I need to make a change. Not a "New Years Resolution" type of change, but a way of life kind of change. I got the book Discipline The Glad Surrender by Elizabeth Elliot for Christmas and reading through it I am finding that what I need is to be disciplined. I need to be disciplined in every area of my life.

First I want to start by being more consistent in my devotional life. I think I need to get my spiritual life in order and then move on to the other areas of my life.

So that's it. I want to make a new start in my life. Anybody else want to make a new start?

Those are my thoughts exactly, both on the hype of resolutions and on the consistent devotional life. I want to make that start too. Let's do it!

Discipline is EXACTLY what I am lacking as well, though before your post I could have pinpointed only several areas. It never occurred to me that I needed it everywhere...
