“New Year, new you” has become the mantra of marketing campaigns targeting consumers making changes to their diet, exercise routines, and lifestyles. January features epidemic viral optimism marketed directly at our overindulged post-Christmas lethargy. Businesses capitalise on our interest in New Year’s resolutions and our new found desires to be better: more organised, fitter, healthier, balanced, and budgeted. Yet they are so quickly broken leading to disappointment and frustration.
In contrast God’s promises do not change with the latest fitness craze or fall by the wayside before February. As we begin 2020 we are going to focus our attention on God’s promises. Let’s make God our the focus of our 2020 vision.
