Happy New Year

 

To God be the glory for blessing us to see a brand new year.  I pray that 2018 will be one of the greatest years that you have ever experienced.  May it be filled with joy, love, excitement, peace, prosperity, and most of all spending more intimate time with the Lord.

Should you decide to focus on making changes this year, determine what those changes will be and take time each day towards completing those things.  Near the end of the year, we often hear the familiar phrase “finish strong!”  Why wait until the end of the year?  Make an attempt to set daily goals that are within reach that causes you to “finish strong” for that day.  If this is consistently done, you will begin to see tangible evidence of accomplished goals before you get to the end of the year.

You may want to create a list of things you want to accomplish.  It’s always a great feeling to finish something and be able to check it off as completed.  Perhaps listing the easiest thing first will work best for you, that way you will be able to quickly move on to the next thing.

On the other hand, you may want to list the most challenging things first or the things that you’ve been putting off so that you can go ahead and get it out of the way.  At any rate, determine what works best for you and work at it consistently.  Keep your list in a place where you can look at it daily so that it will be fresh in your mind.

Most of all, remember that the Lord is with you and wants you to succeed in achieving your goals.  He will help you.  Be sure to keep Proverbs 16:3 in your heart as you are working on completing the things on your list, Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts will be established.”

 

Reflections

  • What do you want to achieve today, this month, and this year?

 

  • Working on your goals at least 10-20 minutes per/day is better than not working on them at all. Will you make a commitment to work on your goals daily

 

  • What is your personal action plan for working on your goals?
