Men, here’s a fresh day and a brand new year to get started off on the right foot! If you’re anything like me then you know how it is to want to start something brand new and input new changes in your daily life whether it’s working out, reading the Bible, eating right, doing better in school, etc. Well, God has given you a brand new beginning in this New Year to get started and he continues to do this each and every day! Imagine how much further along you can be next year at this time if you just start today and  remain consistent in the area you want to grow in! It could be mentally, spiritually, relationally, physically, or ALL OF THE ABOVE!

Stay tuned, we are going to cover ALL of these topics to give you ENCOURAGEMENT this year!

* For the women reading this, you’re welcome to follow along as well, but just know I focus in on the betterment and encouragement of men (You’re welcome to message me with any topics you’d like men to know about the heart of a woman).

Create for me a pure heart, O God! Renew a resolute spirit within me! -Psalm 51:10 (NET)

So many times we fail but the beautiful thing is that God is always readily available to lend a helping hand and get us back on the right path. This verse should be our heart’s cry daily! We will fall along life’s path and that is when God can work through our weakness. Don’t get discouraged when you don’t see the results right away after all your hard work.  It takes time. This is where God’s grace comes in our weakness. Remember, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” The same goes for you.  Ask God to renew your heart, mind, body, and soul to do the task at hand in your life and fulfill your responsibility as a man as He takes you to new heights. Ask Him to help you set positive goals and change your habits. This starts one choice and one day at a time. Go ahead, ask him for it. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had to ask God to renew me and start all over again in my life.

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV) 

Guys, you have a brand new year to do big things for God and grow as men. You are tomorrow’s leaders. Start moving forward today! Don’t get so discouraged or disappointed when you fall, to the point you give up and walk away from what you originally had determined in your heart to do just because the path gets “too hard.” There’s an old saying, “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” It’s not about IF you’ll fall down and fail, it’s about when you do, how soon you get back up! Start somewhere today! The rest of your life depends on it.

Making a big life change starts with attention to the daily details of your life, one step at a time.

Sincerely, with All of God’s Love for You,
