New Year

This Could Be Your Year

This could be your year. Theoretically. You could keep resolutions, catch the right breaks, and accomplish great things, becoming the person you want to be.

This could be your year. Possibly. Depends on how much year there is to go around, and if you're one of the lucky ones who has things work out the way you hope. On the other hand, things could go well for someone else. 

This could be your year. Maybe. What would that accomplish? If it is "your year," does that mean that someone else doesn't get theirs? 

This could be your year. I guess. But it doesn't have to be. We could all focus on making it a successful year for Christ and for the people around us. That way, maybe, when we get to next January, we can look around and say, "This was our year." 

This could be our year, but only if we set our selfish agendas aside and focus on a universally applicable agenda of peace, hope, faith, and love (also known as the gospel.)

This could be your year if it stays yours. This could be our year if we give it all to Jesus.

"May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me." (John 17:21)

Happy New Year.
