An Angel says, "Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice."

We all know about New Year's Resolutions! But, I for one am going to try to practice a little godly wisdom this year. The list below has some suggetions that I believe will greatly enhance the quality of my life. I pray the Lord will guide and strengthen me to follow these guidelines in 2005. There are many challenges in this present world we live in and we need to be better prepared to face them. Many of us have taken our blessings for granted. We need to live more responibly, taking care of and using the gifts God has given us. Repentance means to turn from our sins and walk in the light of the truth of God's purpose for us. I pray we can all stand taller and stronger and grow in the Lord as never before.

Please join with me!

Love in Jesus,




1. Pray

2. Go to bed on time.

3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.

4. Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your physical or mental health.

5. Delegate tasks to capable others.

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
I Cor. 3:16 -17

6. Simplify and unclutter your life.

7. Less is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many.)

8. Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.

9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things all together.

10. Take one day at a time.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt. 6:34

And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. I Cor. 9:25

11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.

12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.

13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, extra stamps, etc.

14. K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.

15. Do something for the Kid in You everyday.

... Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you....
Matt 6:30


16. Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.

17. Get enough rest.

18. Eat right.

19. Get organized so everything has its place.

20. Listen to a tape while driving - one that can help improve your quality of life.

Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. Matt. 6:34

21. Write down thoughts and inspirations.

22. Every day, find time to be alone.

23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.

24. Make friends with Godly people .. the kind that will bring out the best in you and you in them.

25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand. (better yet, memorize them)

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you
I Thess. 5: 18

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Ps. 119/105

26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good "Thank you Jesus."

27. Laugh.

28. Laugh some more!

29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself at all.

30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).

A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.
Prov. 17:22

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
Prov. 15:13

31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most)

32. Sit on your ego.

33. Talk less; listen more.

34. Slow down.

35. Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.

36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for that you've never been grateful for before. And during the day, remember all the things that the Lord has given us .. Eternal Life #1!

"If God is for us, who can be against us?" (Romans 8:31)
