Change, from my point of view is not always progress; it can impede my pace. For instance, I recall the phrase: "The clock is ticking." Time was running out and I needed to be diligent in following through on goals and meeting obligations. With today's technology many clocks no long tick or tock; time silently whizzes by and I no longer receive subliminal messages.
How well will I maximize time in the New Year? I have new calendars and have already written in several events and scheduled appointments; I'm efficient but am I faithful to follow through on the greatest commitment? "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33 NAS)."
He adds to my life; I must not subtract through needless worry. "Therefore do not be anxious for tomorrow: for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34 NAS)." My clocks and watches may not be ticking but the silence allows me to hear God's voice; He is calling me to seek His kingdom and righteousness. Progression follows seeking!
