The New Year is a good time to make changes in your life, because you have just experienced a time of rest and reflection. Nevertheless, it seems to be a tradition in America to make New Year resolutions and then break them before the second month begins. The reason most resolutions fail is because people often do not have a plan associated with their resolutions. Or, they may have a plan in place, but it has not been prayed about and laid out in a succinct manner. Thus, on their own, most people do not follow through with their resolutions. We at Classical Conversations are not alone, however, because we have committed our plans to the Lord.
Proverbs tells us that in order to be successful we need to involve the Lord in our plans:
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. - Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)
If Classical Conversations were to have a list of New Year resolutions, it would look something like this:
1. Provide better customer service.
2. Update our website.
3. Provide more support for Classical Conversations communities.
Since most resolutions fail, we have decided to plan and to commit these plans to the Lord, resting in the assurance of His promise articulated in Proverbs 16:3. I would like to share with you some of the plans we have for the upcoming year, so you can pray for us, asking the Lord to bless our plans and make of them a blessing.
Let us take a deeper look at each of our resolutions:
