New Year, New Me?

Happy new year! Photo Credit:  Leandro's World Tour (Creative Commons)


Yes, it's a new year.  The calendar has been turned, and time marches on.  It's a new year full of possibilities and opportunities.

But I'm still the same person.  No magical transformation happened at midnight.  I still have the same problems that I had in 2012.  My insecurities and weaknesses are still with me. 
 
The new year inspires me to change, but lasting change doesn't occur overnight and I can't do it by myself.  I can attempt to change my habits, but only God can change my heart where enduring alterations to my character occur.
 
So, Lord change my heart today and every day henceforth so I will become more like Jesus in my attitudes and actions. Give me the desire to the work that is needed for lasting change in my life.
