A treasured tradition that dates back centuries involving the careful selection of the Christmas tree, the positioning, and its decoration, so as to build an atmosphere for the globally celebrated holiday which really adds something to the home in which it is placed. But for this Spruce, Pine, or Fir, if naturally selected is considered for its timeline and beauty.
A lot of people end the year with this tradition, and it is my believe that nuggets can be drawn from this tradition; which can positively narrow ones focus and straighten ones path. As the curtains of the year draws to a close, we instinctively take to account how we spent the year – cataloguing achieved and unrealized goals. With this, we begin by making a new set of list in our minds or document in some physical or digital form new goals which may involve carryover goals, and look forward to bring these new goal to fruition in the forth coming year. We hope that with enough willpower, we can see this list become reality.
Planning for the forth coming year is a good step to take, but for some people as the year progresses they begin to discover that their willpower is not enough. For some people think, “with enough willpower, I can …,” but this notion is like a can of spray, having sufficient force at the beginning, but as pressure mounts, its area of coverage diminishes and drowns until nothing is left at the end.
“… but they that wait upon the lord shall renew their strength …” (Isaiah 40:31), I am a believer, so this is what I believe is needed; with this, even when you think it is over and cannot handle more, think on this scripture and move as the Holy Spirit leads because, “Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’ ( Isaiah 30:21)”
Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
