I have decided to have fewer goals for 2015. Normally my list is long and I have different categories even for my yearly goals. In the past there has been a Spiritual, Health, Family and Other headings for my goals. After last year though I’ve come to the conclusion that while the world might think I thrive on deadlines and busyness the truth is I don’t. I need time to think, explore and just be still. It is essential to being who God created me to be. I need my daily date with God and His Word.
So goal #1 is to meet with God daily. I’m not talking a check list perfunctory meeting or a quick hail Mary type time either. I’m talking about a conversation between friends quality meeting time. A time each day devoted to listening and submitting to Him and His will.
All other goals will fall from and be developed during this time. Psalm 143:10 will be my theme this year. “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.”
So goal #2 is to write something each day. Whether it is a journal entry, blog entry or working on an article or book proposal; writing each day is what he is asking of me.
I am so thankful to have a new year to explore and discover what God’s will is for me. What about you? What does God want for you in 2015?
