New Year, New Heights!

With the new year, couples will dream up their new year's resolutions. Like years in the past, resolutions always start with the best of intentions. Unfortunately, if they are not grounded in strategy and fueled by passion, they will eventually deflate or disappear in midair. Think of a helium balloon that slips out from between your fingers. You can only see it for so long before it snags on a tree limb or pops from the high altitude.
On the other hand, in a hot air balloon, you are literally travelling with the dream. It is fueled by fire and guided by the wind. With unbridled passion and the direction of the Holy Spirit all things are possible. However, sticking with the dream requires you to be grounded and to be still in the "basket." Remember that God has many promises He wants to give you, but you must be anchored by the Word of God and the fruit of the Spirit. Self-control and patience will keep you grounded in order to achieve new heights.
I pray that in the coming year, your marriage, ministry, goals, and desires will be rooted in Isaiah 40:31: "But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up their wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
