“He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good … and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.”
— Proverbs 16:20

Most everyone in this experience knows someone who is waiting for the New Year so they can change something in their lives. The past 15 years of my life have been the most rewarding, for as far back as I can remember I was always waiting for New Years so I could make some changes in things that were not serving me well.

I now call on the Creative Force of the Universe (God) to assist me in making changes that make my life a joy. I am not the only one that understands that joy is one of the most important parts of our lives. There are stories written and stories we hear about people who are living life to the fullest, because they call on God to help them with decisions that bring joy, peace and harmony into their lives.

Most of us know someone who is living his or her life by thinking and talking about what happened to them weeks or years ago. We are not created to live our life based on past experiences, but to learn from those experiences and move forward with our own creative thinking. Most people do not get their New Year’s request, because they really didn’t want the request to begin with. They do not want to put forth the effort that it takes to make the request part of their life. God helps those who help themselves, and if you move an inch toward your request, God moves a mile for you toward this request if you are true to yourself...
