Resolution or Revolution?


By Davalynn Spencer @davalynnspencer

Help—my plate runneth over! Anyone else feel the same way?

I don’t need






But neither do I need resolutions. I need a revolution—a change. A way to declutter, delete, and delegate some of the activities and obligations in my life that are crowding out more important commitments and responsibilities.

Remember the old slogan, “Just say no.” Easier said than done on many levels.

A resolution (saying) is a statement—a list of things I should do.

A revolution (doing) is an action, and the last time I checked, actions still speak louder than words.

So here’s my approach:

  • Pray about each activity I’m currently involved in.
  • Can I delete it or delegate it?
  • Be kind and professional about it either way.
  • Remember that God wants me to lighten up. That’s why He said to bring my burdens to Him.

Are you planning a resolution this year or a revolution?

Which would you prefer to see in your life?

Which will bring about the most change?

      Thank you, Stacy. Onward!

  2. I need a revolution. Your suggestions are a great way to start one. It’s easy to just keep doing the same things over and over. Change is good if it’s positive. I think prayer is the key. Follow God’s path. His ways are higher than our ways. He knows what we need.

      Thank you for reading, Karen. And may your revolution revolve around Him.
