I’m still in the new year/new habits mode, and I’m excited. I’m excited because this year God has given me new perspective on what success really looks like.
Success doesn’t mean that you are 100% perfect at reaching your goals. Success means that when you fall face first in the mud you make the decision to get right back up, wipe off as much dirt as you can, and then keep running like when you were a small girl on the playground. Uninhibited. Unashamed. Unfazed.
This year do not let satan win. One bowl of ice cream doesn’t constitute failure. Neither does two. We are human, and we certainly are not perfect. This year when you “fail” at whatever new habit you are trying to form just remember that God never fails. He wants you to be successful, and He will hold your hand and walk you through this entire journey. You just have to grab ahold of Him. Grab ahold of Him, and don’t ever let go.
“But you, Lord, are a shield around me,
my glory, the One who lifts my head high.” – Psalm 3:3
