A Change of Heart

The New Year dawns and many people make resolutions they break shortly after the New Year begins. I guess it is tradition. People are supposed to be reflective and hopeful in the New Year. Why don’t resolutions work?

Simple really, your heart is not in it. There has to be an internal change in a person in order for a change of behavior to happen. We all know people that have changed a behavior. What happens first is a change of heart and will. A person has to make up their mind to change. While it sounds easy it is not. But it happens every day. The self-help section of a library or bookstore is packed with ways to change one thing or another about the self.

In the church we rely on God to help with a change of heart. When one reads the healing stories of Jesus in the New Testament it was always a desire of the person to change. Jesus saw the sincerity of the request and made it happen. Since a change of heart is needed to affect either an internal or external change of behavior, it is vital to rely on God for the change to happen.

As the New Year begins ask God to help you with your resolutions. You just might be surprised by the results. Blessings to you in the New Year.
