Every year, I try to make a resolution of sorts to be better than I was the year before. I want to be different. I really want to be different. I want to be more than I am today. I want to be more than what I think I can be. I want to be all that God has created me to be. I want to choose love, not bitterness. I want to choose good, not evil. I want choose kindness, not selfishness. I want to choose mercy, not revenge. I really want to be different.
So, as I have done for several years, I've asked God to make me over. I don't want to be the same old me I was last year....I want to be more for my Father. I want to be willing to do whatever it is God has planned for me this day, this week, this year. I want to be different. I'm going to my Savior and asking that He will mold me and make me better than I was last year, better than I was yesterday, better than I am today....to make me different because I can't do it using my own power. I need the touch of the Lord to make me different...to make me a new vessel willing to pour out His love to everyone I come in contact with daily. This year I choose to surrender to God, so that I can truly be different.
