The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards...



To welcome in the new year, I wanted to share with you the 70 resolutions that Jonathan Edwards wrote to challenge himself in his walk with the Lord. He faithfully read them once a week.

You can read all 70 resolutions here.

The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards (1722-1723)
Being sensible that I am unable to do anything without God's help, I do humbly entreat him by his grace to enable me to keep these Resolutions, so far as they are agreeable to his will, for Christ's sake.

Remember to read over these Resolutions once a week.

1. Resolved, that I will do whatsoever I think to be most to God's glory, and my own good, profit and pleasure, in the whole of my duration, without any consideration of the time, whether now, or never so many myriad's of ages hence. Resolved to do whatever I think to be my duty and most for the good and advantage of mankind in general. Resolved to do this, whatever difficulties I meet with, how many and how great soever.

I haven't done a ripple afghan in a year, since Rachel was born. I don't really have a favorite pattern; I just get one out of a crochet book. Sorry, I don't really get my patterns online. If you want to borrow a book, let me know.
