What’s your New Year’s Resolution?

5, 4, 3, 2, 1….HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It’s the start of a new year, which means setting yourself targets for the year also known as RESOLUTIONS! Many people will be saying to themselves, This is the year I’m going to stick to my resolutions! I’m going to start my diet and stick to it, I’m going to walk everyday even when it’s raining, I’m going to quit smoking, I’m going to find the man/woman of my dreams!, but in honesty how many people actually stick to what they say?

I’m going to admit I am that person. I make resolutions that I say I’m going to stick to. Every year I say I’m going to lose weight or to slim down, I’m going to eat healthier, I’m going to save money and not spend it on rubbish. This lasts for maximum two weeks then I gorge out on chocolates and spend my money in the sales! This is a problem commonly known as unmotivated and lazy.

This then raised a question in my mind, Why are people so unmotivated to stick to their resolutions yet when it comes to God and their faith, we are so motivated to do His work and spend His word?
I personally find it hard to stick with these resolutions because it is a want. It is something I want to do because I can and it may might be feel better but it’s not God’s wants. God wants us to be happy but when we know Christ and we are living for Him we should be happy anyway.

We don’t need to be skinny and super healthy to be happy in this world. Surely having Christ control your life to help show your purpose in this world is a privilege but not many people see that. I didn’t until now.
Serving God and spreading His word is something I will never stop doing and something I will always have the motivation to do.
We don’t need resolutions that will change who we are. If you wanna go on a diet, fine but do it for the right reasons and not because you want to be like a size zero model. If God wanted you to be a size zero model, he would of made you that way when he started to write your story.

Back on the topic of resolutions, yes I’m going to make some. BUT I feel the best type of resolution to make are ones that are God centred and ones that will help you improve and strengthen your faith!

Have a great 2015!

Why do we celebrate Christmas? IT’S SIMPLE!

IT’S CHRISTMASSSSSSSSSSSS!

Finally the most exciting and happiest time of the year has arrived! Christmas, I find, is full of joy and brings family together as well as presents and over eating. But the true meaning of Christmas has been forgotten about in most families homes, why do you think this is? Is it because people think it’s a load of rubbish and don’t want to put a silly story into their children’s heads? or is it because adults nowadays don’t want to believe there is a great God? Who knows. Christmas used to and still is my favourite time of year as without it, we wouldn’t be us today.

On Christmas Day, many families around the world celebrate the birth of a baby called Jesus. No one knew when he was born that he would do the impossible in his latter years, all was said is that he would be the King of Kings. No one knew just how much impact this little boy would have on millions of people’s lives. No one knew he would die the most heart wrenching, bloodiest, unthinkable death just to save us from our sins! This baby fulfilled the prophecy that had been said in Isaiah 53.

“He was despised and avoided by others; a man who suffered, who knew sickness well. Like someone from whom people hid their faces, he was despised, and we didn’t think about him. It was certainly our sickness that he carried, and our sufferings that he bore, but we thought him afflicted, struck down by God tormented” – Isaiah 53:3-5

Many people ask What is Christmas really about? The truth is Christmas is the day we celebrate the birth of the most amazing man ever to have lived. With out Jesus we wouldn’t be who we are today. We would still be dirty and covered in sin but no, Jesus took all of that and died for us so we may live a clean life. Christmas is just the beginning on was yet to come…

Merry Christmas everyone 🙂
