A Brighter 2016

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.”

  • Romans 12:12 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Approaching a new year often brings to mind a boatload of resolutions. For me, they usually turn out to be broken promises to myself. And that’s not a good way to start a fresh new year. I could resolve to read more, or to exercise more, or to eat healthier. But reality tells me I won’t do all of that.

There is one resolution I would very much like to make, and I discovered It in the 12th chapter of Romans. I truly believe it’s the key to a brighter year.

So my New Year’s resolution for 2016 is this:

“Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer.”

I believe it will sustain me well, whatever 2016 brings my way.
