How bout this modern translation of Haggai 1:5-7:
“You go to work, but you don’t feel any sense of purpose, you have relationships, but you cant find intimacy, you go to church, but you don’t feel close to God anymore. Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Stop blaming someone else and take a long, good look in the mirror.”
Looking for a good New Year’s Resolution? Realize that what goes on inside your head and heart are much more powerful in your life than what you experience externally. Resolve to let Jesus help you be the person you’ve always dreamed you would be. He can and He will.
