Now that Christmas has almost come and gone, we begin to make plans to usher in a new year. We mark our calendars with new events and make new lists of things we want to accomplish that we somehow missed last year.
"Out with the old and in with the new," we say. Resolutions fill our agenda for the first week of a new year, and then it's on to something new.
But this year-yeah this year, I'm resolving to love beyond myself.
I pray that this year, the Lord will flood in this life like never before. Flood our hearts with joy and our homes with more of You. Change us. Remake us. Give us strength in the days when our flesh wants to run the other way. Let our life be a light of You-even when others aren't watching. Even when we may be scared. Don't let us be blinded by the culture, by the lies, and by our own sin. Let us go to work daily with less pride, more humility, and more You. Give us a deep desire to love others beyond ourselves. Let us write this, pray this, and believe this. Let our hearts drink deep from the truth. Find us, know us, and give us strength. And on days that You seem so far away, don't let our hearts grow weary. Don't let us lose sight of You.
That is my prayer for the new year. But how do I plan to love beyond my self, you ask?
Well, I plan to end 2016 and begin 2017 by giving back to one of my favorite organizations, and I am giving you a chance to do the same. The Tim Tebow Foundation strives daily to bring Faith, Hope, and Love to those needing a brighter day during their darkest hour. Beginning today and ending on my birthday, January 13, I am raising money for TTF.
