For this, the beginning of the year, it is good to remember, that obedience to God is the first promise to be made. If nothing else, stop worrying about the effect your obedience will have on others.
God is not to be mocked. He knows. This is not news. Just do whatever it is you know you need to do and the rest will fall into place the way it is supposed to.
Nothing is more destructive than second guessing the direction that the Lord is taking you. Stop all doubts. Do it even if you are afraid. Just do it.
Happy New Year. Happy new leaf turned over for your benefit and for glory.
