As the calendar page turns to reveal its fresh, empty blocks which mark the time which lies in front of me, I am struck with a sudden urge to mend my ways. Thoughts of an abundance of healthy, home cooked meals, lots of movement, stacks of new books to read, and an assortment of art supplies to try get me excited to see what the new year has in store. I like to dream about the New Me that I could become with a little more effort, planning, and self-discipline.
Then the doubt creeps in as I remember the many times in the past when similar thoughts danced through my mind. I become afraid to verbalize my dreams for fear of looking foolish within the first few weeks of my failed “New Year-New Me” efforts. So, often I let the ideas pass instead of making the effort. Can you relate to this or am I the only one who falls prey to dreaming and doubting?
If you feel called to be a Prayer Warrior, but feel more like you are entering the battlefield with a butter knife— I have something just for you.
