My New Year’s resolution to eat less sugar crashed and burned in the candy aisle at 7-11. We’d been on the road for 10 hours. I was tired, the kids were cranky, we had another hour of drive time left to go, and that candy bar was doing the cha-cha and calling my name. I had earned that chocolate.
It was January 2.
Resolutions and goals are great, but they aren’t enough. I can set the most specific, measurable, reachable goals in the world, but to see change I first have to change myself. Willpower, commitment, and accountability are important, but they don’t change who I am at the core. For that, I need something different.
I need someone different.
I need Jesus.
