Studies show a lot of our New Year’s resolutions are out the window by the end of January, and sometimes we may feel really frustrated. Spiritually, if we don’t live up to our expectations of ourselves or God’s expectations of us we may want to pull back from Him out of shame, guilt or frustration. But closing God out of our lives is never the answer. Instead, by opening our lives to God and faith—even if we’re hurting or frustrated—is how we grow and have the best year ever!
