Psalm 51:10 (ESV)
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.
The New Year is a time of renewing, renewing your goals, your family, and your friends. We often spend the first few days of the New Year creating a list of resolutions, goals we hope to accomplish during the year, things we want to change or improve, and possibly trips we want to take or new hobbies we want to start.
Whatever your goals or resolutions may be for 2017, it’s an opportunity to reflect on the past year and look forward to the new one. Some resolutions are the same every year, but it’s just a way to renew the commitment we have to ourselves and our family to strive to be better and grow closer. Here are a few resolutions that can make your year with your family more memorable.
Have a daily family devotion time. This is the perfect way to start the day with your children.
Take a family vacation. The trip has to be a fun-filled trip of quality time together as a familyt.
Better yourselves. It can be something small or something large, but whatever it may be, try to continue to improve your family and your marriage.
Take time to set goals both as individual family members and as a family. What are some of the goals that will make for 2017?
Dear Lord, we thank You for the year that You have given to us. Help us set goals that will bring honor to You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
