As the new year is now upon us, everyone talks about the need to start something new. But that “newness” of whatever quickly goes stale and we revert to what we were once before. We are creatures of habit.

The question I have for each of us today as we start the new year is, “What would it take to start something new?” Not just with the stirring of the heart or having a new mindset, but starting something new that would create permanent change for the betterment for ourselves. What would need to happen to trigger such an event?

One thought I have toward this includes the word I have been thinking about for myself…

Obedience…

I believe this is something we have to pursue. With everything that goes on in society, we have to be obedient to the point of eliminating the silliness, the drama, and pretty much all the worldliness that causes us to be complacent and accepting of the wrongs in our lives. Obedience leads to commitment without compromise. It creates consistency for others, but most importantly, ourselves.

Having obedience places a new perspective toward allowing ourselves to eliminate the need for the usual quick fix of a new strategy. Many times we try to be clever and work around something to get to where we need to be instead of facing the problem knowing we are lacking nothing more than just being obedient. The problem is our willingness to compromise with everything else and allow the lie of not being able to change to fester within us. We stop fighting for the truth we know to be true in our lives.

Whatever it is that needs to be changed in your life and your “want” to change, it starts with obedience without wavering. Find what it is you want to change and create the obedience in your life that is needed. You might just develop the “2020 vision” to see it through. Go and do the right thing…
