December 31

This is a day of hope.  We enter this day letting go of 2015, with the hope that next year will be different- better.  We make promises that we will stop this or do that.  We are told by the experts that making a Resolution with a friend will improve the chance that we may actually stick with it.  How about we make our promises with the Holy Spirit this year?  Let's consult the Spirit to see what God might want us to do or not do, then promise to check in with the Spirit to help us keep our Resolution.  We don't have to wait for a text or meet at a certain time in order to talk with the Spirit.  The Holy Spirit is with us all the time, no matter where we are or what we are doing.  And- the Spirit wants us to succeed.  God wants us to become the best us that we can, and will even help us to do it, if we ask.

Gracious Spirit, please show us the person you want us to be and help us to become that person.  Amen.
