A new year offers us opportunities to stop and reflect upon how we want to spend our time and energy this year. |

Yesterday, I preached on resolutions at The Moody Church. I mentioned that I would post this helpful list from Don Whitney. I hope you benefit from it.

Donald Whitney:

The beginning of a new year is an ideal time to stop, look up, and get our bearings. To that end, here are some questions to ask prayerfully in the presence of God.

  • What’s one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?
  • What’s the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year?
  • What’s the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year?
  • In which spiritual discipline do you most want to make progress this year, and what will you do about it?
  • What is the single biggest time-waster in your life, and what will you do about it this year?
  • What is the most helpful new way you could strengthen your church?
  • For whose salvation will you pray most fervently this year?
  • What’s the most important way you will, by God’s grace, try to make this year different from last year?
  • What one thing could you do to improve your prayer life this year?
  • What single thing that you plan to do this year will matter most in ten years? In eternity

    These questions, and others, can be found here.
