When Another New Year Comes
New Years are milestones. They represent significant points in the passing of time.
Stop and reflect about your self. Your life, every new year.
It looks like New Years are designed to enable us to make an annual life self assessment. Not only of length of years we've got, but our depth or quality of life as well.
Are you just growing older? Or, are you also growing whole and healthy?
The psalmist gives us a best wish to say each rolling new year along this line.
"So teach us to number our days, that we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom." (Psalm 90:12)
I've a caution for you and I.
These New Years are not like an insurance policy where there can be pledge of automatic renewal. Obviously, no one holds a guarantee of another forthcoming new year added into his or her life.
So, if our Creator gives you another new year, He must have some plans for you. He has some things in His mind that He wants you to pull off through your self and life.
Surely, that includes more than your coming 525,000 minutes for the new year!
You need wisdom.
Wisdom comes privately inside the self. It's a by-product of right choices, habits, and principles applied to circumstances and relationships. It's a fruit of a disciplined, deeper self.
Can you find marks of wisdom in your self, life, and future plans when another new year comes?
Make the most of the time given to you. One of these New Years will be God's terminal point in your life!
