The New Year grinds forward. You may long for it or try to hold it off. You may think it augurs a new beginning, or you may be fretting for 36 things still to do in 2015. It’s forward progress is unstoppable.
But a new you doesn’t proceed forward in the same manner. A new you comes only if you change existing habits. If you set new goals — or maybe just goals, then you can pursue. A new you requires effort.
This is why I am a Christian. I want a better version of myself. I want to resolve not just once a year but daily for it and strive for it. Christianity is all about looking forward, embracing change. Christianity is about idealism and yet it is practical.
I encourage you to seek the new you — and, yes, I highly recommend you find it where I think it can only be found, in God.

People want simply to add to what they have, but the genuinely new can be had only by letting go of the old. That can get scary, but in Christ it is more than worth it!
yes it is beautiful
