Ever made New Year’s resolutions? As we launch into 2022, let’s make some New Year’s re-SOUL-utions … because all our souls have room for improvement! To come up with re-SOUL-utions, ask yourself questions like:
· How can I use my spiritual gifts in new ways to build up the Body of Christ?
· What can I do to deepen my relationship with God?
· What do I need to change to overcome my toughest temptations?
· How can I inspire the people I interact with to follow Jesus?
Dedicate your re-SOUL-utions to God in prayer, and ask for his help, presence, power, and grace to make real changes in your life. He will provide!
Let’s be energized and exhorted by the words of Jose Escriva, a favorite author of mine:
“Don’t let your life be sterile. Be useful. Blaze a trail. Shine forth with the light of your faith and of your love. With your apostolic life, wipe out the slimy and filthy mark left by the impure sowers of hatred. And light up all the ways of the earth with the fire of Christ that you carry in your heart.”
