“And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”” (Matthew 26:39, ESV)
If I wrote down a list of resolutions, one thing would be common to them all: me.
They are the skills valuable to me. They are the interests and virtues worthwhile to me. They are the vices distasteful to me.
Me, me, me.
This year, I want more than me and what I personally find important.
This year, I want what my Savior finds important.
This year, I want to ask a different kind of question: What does God want of me?
Give me more than I want, Lord. Give me what you want.
Not my will, but yours be done.
