2014 has been rung in and we are all looking forward to the “Fresh” New start we get each and every new year!
The reality is that we can have a Fresh New start- each- new- minute- IF we NEED it.
Each New Day is a Gift…..Each New Day we get to decide what we do.
You see, if you are reading this and you live In the US, you (and I) have freedoms that many people in our wold know nothing about. Or maybe they dream about but just don’t really know what it is like to have this freedom.
As a Christian, I am keenly aware that I can practice my religion freely here.
I know that is not true everywhere.
And while I understand that being a Christian means that my life will be filled with sacrifice and may not be easy (contrary to popular belief), I still choose to walk with Christ!
As I look forward to a New Year….
I am excited to see what my pastor is preaching about each week, as he has been encouraging us to take advantage of this New Beginning.
Set Goals —>>>WRITE them DOWN – BUT —->>>>>They need to be tangible, measurable and in the Will of God!
I think in the past that WAS the missing Link!
I want my goals moving forward this year to be In the Will of God. I want God to help me reach these goals and therefore, I must consult with Him when I set them and we can work them out together.
Here is the FIRST Message in our series….May it encourage you as it has me!
The Truth is – If we are NOT setting Goals in our life, we are saying that we are OK with where things are now AND that we are OK if they deteriorate or at the very least, stay the same as they are now.
I don’t know about you, but I am never satisfied with where things are.
I Love by the idea that we are always learning, and therefore should ALWAYS be searching, reaching and going forward in the idea that THIS day Can and WILL be BETTER than yesterday.
Maybe it is a simple smile, maybe it is something much larger like trying to figure out the meaning of something that had escaped you before…..but either way if we are not being stretched than – what i the point?
Are you willing to set some tangible goals on paper this year?
I am and I will be sharing some of them here soon!
Until next time – I wish for you Success!
2014 started as a good year for me writing-wise. I’d like to keep it that way till December.
That is my plan too. No matter what else is going on, i am going to be sure to get my writing in each day! The world is a much better place for me when I can release my tensions through writing. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Brian! Please do come back again and share your thoughts with us!
