Happy New Year!! (Its not the chinese new year). I know its quite late now, but its better late then never. I took there is never too late for anything. New year is always been a good day for me. Near the end of the year I like to reflect back over the year what I have been doing, what are the things I have achieved as I look backed to my goal list of the year.

When new year come in I like to make a new year resolution and a new goal list. Maybe you have finished yours, but mine is still on progress. I would like to apply the marathon principle, start slow, increase slowly, and keep steady.

For those who are still working on their new year resolution, I would like to share this great video, a talk by a legend in the field of psychotherapy, dr Viktor Frankl (wiki link).

When I watched this, I remembered  this verse “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him, male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). I was reminded about my identity, and what kind of resolution  and goals I should aim. Many times I just aim for what I think I can become, not what God has created me to be. Jesus reminded me not to be contended with my own standard, or even the world standard.

We need to follow the standard that He set “You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect”. (Matthew 5:48).

Currently my resolution of 2011 is Repentance. What about yours? Have you made your resolution? Have you set your goals?

“Ask, and it will be given you; Seek, and you will find; Knock and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened”.(Matthew 7:7-8)
