    Setting Goals

    Monday, January 03, 2022

    I pray you had a wonderful New Year and are ready to begin 2022 with a renewed spirit and hearts full of joy in serving our Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

    I want to challenge you to begin this year with new ministry and personal goals, not New Year’s Resolutions because we always tend to break those, but set realistic goals for yourself and your ministry and write them down. Share them with someone and ask them to hold you accountable to these goals.

    I know God has great things in store for you this year and can’t wait to hear some of your stories as we go through the year.

    I want to share a devotional from “Jesus Is Calling” and pray it speaks to your heart as you are praying about these goals for 2022.

    “Come to Me with a teachable spirit, eager to be changed. A close walk with Me is a life of continual newness. Do not cling to old ways as you step into a new year. Instead, seek My Face with an open mind, knowing that your journey with Me involves being transformed by the renewing of your mind. As you focus your thoughts on Me, be aware that I am fully attentive to you. I see you with a steady eye, because My attention span is infinite. I know and understand you completely; My thoughts embrace you in everlasting Love. I also know the plans I have for you: plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Give yourself fully to this adventure of increasing attentiveness to My Presence.”

    May God do great things in and through you this year!
