Finish Strong!

Posted on by Willie Comer

We are one month into our New Year’s Resolutions of losing weight, going to the gym, reading our bible, going to church every Sunday are just a few of the many resolution we make year after year. Unfortunately, for many of us we have already fallen short on our promise to ourselves. 
We knew that the piece of double chocolate cake we had was not apart of our New Year dietary plans and yet we ate it anyway. We knew that it was Wednesday, which was sat aside as a resolution to work on our cardio at the gym but somehow someway we came up with a reason not to go. 
We finally took the plan seriously and we were going to read through the bible in a year and we are already 10 days behind and have already missed church service twice.

What is the problem? Why do we make resolutions at the beginning of each year that sounds great? They actually make sense to accomplish. Yet, one month in we find ourselves struggling to complete the task for the next 11 months. I want you to know something I found out during my resolution making and that is: there is no resolution without a solution. Before I can resolve I have to have a real solution that does not depend upon my flesh or any of my abilities. The solution must be something or someone with more power then me; and His name is Jesus! He is the solution for my resolution! 
Matthew 6:33, “We have to seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything else will be added unto you!” You are not out of the race yet! You are only one month in, make up in your mind to seek Jesus and Finish Strong!
