Happy New Year!!

…or as we say in Scotland… ‘Lang may yer lum reek wi ither folks coal!’

Some ‘resolute’ wisdom from the General…

1849
RESOLUTIONS
I do promise — my God helping —
1. That I will rise every morning sufficiently early (say 20 minutes before seven o’clock) to wash, dress, and have a few minutes, not less than 5, in private prayer.
2. That I will as much as possible avoid all that babbling and idle talking in which I have lately so sinfully indulged.
3. That I will endeavour in my conduct and deportment before the world and my fellow servants especially to conduct myself as a humble, meek, and zealous follower of the bleeding Lamb, and by serious conversion and warning endeavour to lead them to think of their immortal souls.
4. That I will not read less than 4 chapters in God’s word every day.
5. That I will strive to live closer to God, and to seek after holiness of heart, and leave providential events with God.
6. That I will read this over every day or at least twice a week.
God help me, enable me to cultivate a spirit of self denial and to yield myself a prisoner of love to the Redeemer of the world.
Amen & Amen
William Booth
I feel my own weakness and without God’s help I shall not keep these resolutions a day. The Lord have mercy upon my guilty soul.
I claim the Blood
Yes, oh Yes,
Jesus died for me.
