For the next few weeks, many things around you will be reminding you that we’ve just entered a New Year. There’s encouragement to begin a new exercise regimen, a new diet, a new class. Begin a new hobby, learn a new skill.. New Year, New You! Well, we will not join the chorus by telling you to have a new marriage in 2018. Nope. Not going to do it. We actually think you should reach back and grab some of the old. That’s right, the old. Not ALL of the old. Remember, some of that didn’t work for you. But we want you to reach back and grab the old part of your relationship that was fresh and in love. The part when you saw the best in each other. When you chose to see the good. The part that brought you together in the first place. And then made you want to decide to spend the rest of your life together…
Step away from the noise for a moment. The distractions that are telling you that what you have right now isn’t good enough and you need to go and get something different to have something new. Believe us when we tell you that it is possible to transform what you currently have into something refreshing, loving, and exciting. But first you must begin with commitment.
- Commitment to be an active participant in the transformation that you desire to take place.
- Commitment to stick it out when things are difficult.
- Commitment to work on self and learn to shift your focus to becoming all that God desires you to be.
Resist the temptation to abandon what you have in favor of looking for something new. God can bless what you already have.
What commitment will you make? Let us know in the comments below.
