To come to a definite or earnest decision about; determine (to do something).
OK, here it is, the end of January. Many New Year’s resolutions have come and gone. That’s why I don’t make New Year’s resolutions anymore. They don’t work—for me. (Hats off to all of you who are doing well with yours. Keep up the good work!)
But the word resolve, now that’s an action word. And that is what I did a couple of weeks ago. I resolved to do something, and with God’s help, I did it. That word stuck in my head and gave me a determination to finish what I had started.
(I know, you’re thinking Don’t the words resolve and resolution pretty much mean the same thing? Well, yes they do thank you for asking. But it took me about a week to make the connection!)
So I guess I did, unwittingly, make a resolution!
A personal goal I made for myself was reached. I am a better person for it. Through reaching this goal, I am able to move on to some clear-cut decisions that will help make our lives happier and healthier, with a doable plan laid out in front of me. I’m excited and ready to achieve what God has planned for me and my family.
I have learned several lessons through this and do not plan on going around the mountain again.
Resolve. My new action word.
It’s All Earnestly Good!
