Happy New Year

Saturday, January 1st, 2011

Another year. Come and gone. And this time of year can be both exciting as you think on a new start, new goals, and a new perspective. Or it can be kinda painful to think on unfinished business and things you didn’t quite finish. But either way, the new year is a great time to make new goals and set direction for your relationship with the Lord, your ministry, your business, and other relationships.

A great book by Andy Stanley, The Principle of The Path, has a great quote. “Direction, not intention, determines your destination.”

A lot us have big dreams and big ideas. But we will only get there if we actually start working toward it. We will never reach our goal unless we do the work to get there. Want to learn to play the guitar? You must practice. Want to know what God wants? Spend time with Him. Want a better relationship with your parents? Be kind and obey.

So, in the new year, dream big. Do great things. But don’t just dream, do. Start walking in it. Start taking steps, even baby steps to achieve what it is that God has for you.

Take some time today to write down your goals and then go for it!

“Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap” (Gal. 6:7).

Happy New Year!!
