My schedule Sunday night was coming together nicely. My work schedule runs on the dot, but my home schedule isn’t. It’s willy nilly, but I am always inspired every year end to whip things back into shape. The trick is to “keep on keeping on”, and it is a trick, because I can’t always seem to get it right. Going to bed early and getting up early is pretty important, but that’s a commitment in itself when others around you have different schedules. On New Year’s Eve, I don’t think I’ll make it to bed early.
This year, my focus is going to become much more narrow. It has become broad and cluttered with too many objectives, but that is the way of the world. It is worldiness that clutters and clogs. There is an agenda that is at war with God and we are witnessing it in living color now.
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
“Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light.”
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”
So, keeping it simple in 2014…Happy New Year friends.
