10 Most Popular Resolutions of Teens for 2010
Church – parallel – Lent
Lent is a season of soul-searching and repentance. It is a season for reflection and taking stock. Lent originated in the very earliest days of the Church as a preparatory time for Easter, when the faithful rededicated themselves and when converts were instructed in the faith and prepared for baptism. By observing the forty days of Lent, the individual Christian imitates Jesus’ withdrawal into the wilderness for forty days.
Praise the Lord
I will sing of the LORD’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
Look forward to attending every Worship Service
Some people have gotten out of the habit of meeting for worship, but we must not do that. We should keep on encouraging each other, especially since you know that the day of the Lord’s coming is getting closer.
2 Timothy 2:15
Concentrate on doing your best for God, work you won’t be ashamed of, laying out the truth plain and simple.
Give 10% to the Lord
2 Corinthians 9:7
Each of you must make up your own mind about how much to give. But don’t feel sorry that you must give and don’t feel that you are forced to give. God loves people who love to give.
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Pray, Pray, Pray
I Thessalonians 5:17
Never stop praying.
Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.”
Do something for those in need
Matthew 25: 35-36
For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home. 36 I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you cared for me. I was in prison, and you visited me.’
Guard your thoughts
2 Corinthians 10”5b
take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Share your shame
Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so God can heal you. When a believing person prays, great things happen.
Develop your talents
I Corinthians 10:31b
whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.
When people make these resolutions, they actually are hoping for:
a new start
a new beginning
Myrtle Beach Marathon February 13th, 2009.
I am running in honor and support of Children in Southern Sudan.
Holston Conference is planning an Orphanage and we can help by raising support to get the job done!
Maybe your family could send your gift to the children of Sudan in honor of each other!
If you would like to support, send your check to 1st Hillsville United Methodist Church, C/O Ronnie G Collins PO Box 356 Hillsville Virginia 24343. Make the check to Holston Conference and on the remit line “Hope for the children of Sudan”.
Why not do something you love and help others at the same time?
Together we can change the world!
Here is how it will work. I will travel to Myrtle Beach in February and run the 26.2 mile Marathon on February 13th Day in honor of and support of The Children of Sudan Africa, “Hope for the Children”.

Help me meet the goal but more importantly help the children of Sudan.
There are several ways that you can support.
# 1 is in your prayers
26 people (Churches, Youth Groups, UMW, UMM, any group)could donate $100 and I would reach the goal.
Donate $1 for every mile = 26 dollars
Donate $5 for every mile = 130 dollars
Donate $10 for every mile = 260 dollars
Donate $20 for every mile = 520 dollars
Donate $100 for every mile = 2600 dollars

What excitement will the New Year bring to your life? As I look back over 2009 I have to take a deep breath because it has been so busy. A lot has been accomplished. However, the greatest thing I want to do is learn from 2009 in order to make 2010 better.
Here are some things that I want to accomplish in 2010
#1. To grow closer to our Lord, get to know Him better
#2. To have more date nights with my wife, just she and I -this will require babysitters
#3. To have more 1 on 1 time with my oldest son, Michael
#4. To spend more time with my grandbabies
#5. To spend more time in sermon preparation
This is a start, I will add more later because I have just started to think about what things need to change and how to accomplish this for 2010. I am sure the list will grow…
