Well it is January 2015 and I have several resolutions including losing weight, but the most important resolution has to do with being closer to God. He is always there, but I have a tendency of fitting him in rather being in day long communion with him. My prayer is to be praying without ceasing where through out my day I am sharing with God my worries and praising him for the promise of his presence.
In the war movie Saving Private Benjamin there is one character who is a sniper who is an amazing good shot. The little side note to his accuracy is he prays before each shot, and he never misses. Until.. in one dramatic war scene the enemies frenzied attack was overwhelming the Americans to the point where this sniper hurries his shots and no longer is praying. He is doing it on his own, and eventually is overcome and killed in this climactic final battle.
Now please don't worry I am not a literal sniper that you are going to someday here about on the 6pm news, but instead I desire to be in a relationship with God that grows so close I know he is with me and blessing my efforts no matter my circumstance. What if my relationship with God was so close there was no room for self. What if my attitude of prayer was such a part of me I could shoot down any attack from the enemy.
May God bless each of you as you draw near to Him. May your relationship with Him be such that it brings peace to your hearts, and is a testimony to this world.
