The year 2018 is now only days away! I’d suggest that we take just a quick glance back over 2017 and see how much our lives have changed. The things that we’ve accomplished … or not, are totally dependent on our perspective! However, we’ve experienced almost 365 days (over 8,000 hours) of life, some days were challenging and others enlightening, but I pray that we have lived EVERY day to it’s fullness!
As a NEW year approaches, we must look beyond the Chaos of the world today and continue to focus to establishing more Order in our lives day by day. In spite of what we see, we should move forward with Purpose, Determination and Expectation!
I believe that we will continue to experience a “Shifting” in our lives in 2018. Shifting is defined as changing, especially unpredictably.
- Keep our eyes open, so that we can avoid the distractions and move the barriers.
- Walk through the doors that the Lord opens, but don’t try to push through the doors that He closes.
- Plan for success, but don’t give up if we fail. Just get up and TRY again!
- Organize along the way (I am a professional organizer :-D) and Stay on Track…
May you have a Blessed & Prosperous New Year!
Back in December, which seems so long ago now…. We talked about getting ready for 2014 and the need for us to lay out a plan to achieve our dream, Big or Small!! Well, it’s February already and I am checking to see how the plans are going. I suggested that we jot down 2-3 things that we really wanted to accomplish this year. Now that 32 whole days have passed… How Goes It??
We must always keep our eyes on the prize or we will lose sight of our goals. Our path may become real foggy. Yes, I know that it is still early, so may I suggest that we at least glance at the plan and just make sure that we are heading in the right direction. It is so VERY easy to get caught up into the day to day routine and before we know it, it’s September and we are saying, “Well there’s always next year!”
NO, not again! Let’s make this year different. 2014, the Year of Double Completion, we can accomplish TWICE as much! Double for our Trouble… We will be BLESSED twice as much… Double Spiritual Perfection… in order to make certain that what you hope for will come true. Then you will not become spiritually dull and indifferent. Instead, you will follow the example of those who are going to inherit God’s promises because of their faith and endurance. Hebrews 6:11b-12 NLT
We can accomplish GREAT things by simply taking one step at a time. Yes, Our Steps are Ordered!
Are you making progress?? I am sure that your story will encourage others or you may need our encouragement to Don’t Give Up! Your dream is closer than you think. Please share….
You are Blessed & Highly Favored!!!!
