Whether it be by eating better, starting a new hobby, or trying new things, resolutions are important priorities we create, to try and achieve fulfilment and happiness.
However, there is one thing as Christians, that is the most important priority of them all, and that is keeping God first in the new year. As Christians, we often ask ourselves how we can be the best version of ourselves, which reflects His teachings.

Start your day with Him
What better way to start your day, than with God! The way you wake up and begin your day can set your mood for the rest of the day! Whether it’s reading your Bible, or praying, in starting your day with God, you are staying connected with Him and keeping him first in your life.
By shifting your focus to spend more time with God, you are allowing yourself to become closer to Him, and maintain discipline.

Seek God’s guidance when working

If you are struggling to get things accomplished or staying focused at work, seek God’s help! Ask him for guidance and clarity before you begin your workday, and you’ll find yourself feeling more connected to both God and your work!
God is always there for us, in our good times, and bad times, so it is important that we always give thanks to Him for his constant, unwavering love and guidance. Part of keeping God first is demonstrating your love and appreciation for Him, by giving thanks.
