Now is the time when we see whether our New Year’s resolutions have any staying power. Which is why we need to establish routine, rhythm, and ritual in our lives. Stick with that exercise routine! Establish a rhythm of personal connection with your children, spouse, and friends. And lock in that ritual of daily prayer and silence with Jesus each day! These resolutions keep us committed to growth. Since we all struggle with this, let’s also remind each other to get our hearts in rhythm with the Heart of Jesus. It’s His grace that powers our will to get after it and stick with it. Yes, “God helps those who help themselves,” but it is more accurate to say that “God helps us to help ourselves.” When our hearts beat with His, amazing things happen! As Paul exclaims, “Now to Him who by the power at work within us is able to do far more than all that we ask and think, to him be glory.”
