“At the times when you remember God, increase your prayers, so that when you forget Him, the Lord may remind you.”
(St. Mark the Ascetic, The Philokalia, Kindle Loc. 2995-96)
One good resolution for the New Year: remember God daily – early and often. Whenever God crosses your mind, say a prayer – offer thanksgiving, request mercy, or give joyful thanks. Do this intentionally and with resolve. Then, in those dark moments when you have forgotten God or feel far removed from the Lord, God will remind you of God’s presence not only in the world but in your life.
