Starting A-Fresh
This entry is part 6 of 22 in the series Striving to be Christlike

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.~ Philippians 3:13-14 

It’s over! Yay! 2010 was a rough year for many folks, including myself. Unemployment, foreclosure, moved twice, leaks in closets, heck, so much bad stuff happened, I already forgot most of it. I had to. If I dwelled in the past, I’d get depressed and you can’t go on a job interview if you’re depressed.

The advice in the passage from Philippians is what we all need to follow. No matter what mistakes we made last year, what things we said that we wish we could take back – it’s time to forgive and forget.

Look at 2011 with anticipation.

Dedicate this year to God –that you will put God first in every aspect of your life. Look up for strength and wisdom.

Do you have some New Year’s Resolutions? Did you keep the ones form last year? The Holy Spirit gives us patience and self-control – two of the fruits needed to keep resolutions and goals. Call on the Spirit when you are tempted. The Spirit is a gift that Jesus gave us when we accepted Him into our hearts. This is one gift you don’t want to return.

Happy New Year!
Feliz Ano Nuevo!
God Bless,

About Giselle Aguiar

WWJD? The question we should ask ourselves every time we're facing a decision, when we're confronted, angry, shocked, frustrated, annoyed, impatient or panicked. What would Jesus say? What would Jesus write? We can wear the WWJD? bracelets and display the stickers, but do we walk the walk? Christians should strive to be like Christ. When the first WWJD? movement started, there was no social networking and viral meant the flu. Today, we have the means and opportunity to revive the WWJD? movement and make a difference in this world.
