New Years Goals

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

The most important thing I do when when setting goals is to ask myself and God; "What do I need to accomplish this year (month, week, day)?
I seek first the kingdom of God. He will direct my steps.
I remember that old things have passed away. I'm not the same person that I was last year. This is a new start. God will help me triumph (2Cor. 2:14). I can be successful in my endeavour.

God will help me. I have nothing to fear (Is. 41:3) The steps of a good person are ordered by the Lord. He will uphold me (Ps. 37:24).
In God I will trust. What better way to walk into 2013?

My personal goals have to do with
1. my teaching-keeping up my current licenses, and effective teaching techniques.
2. My blogging-every day I write something meaningful.
3. My health-at least 20 minutes of cardio and some sit-ups and push-ups daily.
4. My diet-One small improvement every single month.
Good things are coming!

    May God grace your steps, bless your path and strength your resolve. Your "have tos" are wonderful and I love that you go before God first and have Him show you those things that will benefit you greatly in this Journey.
Everyday is a blessing and it's up to us to see the miracles that God is working out around us every single day!
