Do you set New Year Goals?
Looking up at the sky, searching through the cotton candy clouds, as if I’d see God. I’m frustrated. I’ve failed. Not goals met. I sigh, sinking down into myself. “Lord, please help me!” I sulked.
My resolutions and goals sat broken on the floor of my life.
*Weight loss, nope.
*Finish writing devotional, nope
*Double my Virtual Assistant clients, nope
And I know I’m not alone in my struggle. All those who struggle with achieving your goals please raise your hand or coffee cup!
**This is me raising my coffee cup**
According to THIS study, the top 3 New Years Resolutions are…
#1 Weight Loss
#2 Get Organized
#3 Spend Less, Save More
Yet, they say that only 8% of us are actually successful in achieving those goals. Only 8%! Wow!
I needed a better plan!!
As I sought God and dove into His Word this morning, I found a verse I want to share with you, my friends.
“The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty.” Proverbs 21:5
I failed to achieve my goals because of two reasons….
#1 I was not diligent. I didn’t create nor did I purchased any strong structure or plan to help me with the goals I felt God place on my heart.
Solution: I didn’t have to become one of the MANY that failed. If I didn’t know how to get un-stuck, I could have reached out for help to overcome.
#2 I relied solely on my own will or self diligence to see me through. Real change happens on purpose and with God’s help.
Solution: I can do this. There is HOPE! God will strengthen me as I lean on Him and seek His help!
“I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
Can I overcome? Absolutely! And so can you!
Let’s link arms and be part of the 8% that follow through and achieve their God given goals!!
I want to be intentional about my spiritual growth in 2018, my health, getting organized, writing my book and growing my business.
Proverbs 13:16, TLB. “A wise man thinks ahead; a fool doesn’t and even brags about it!”
God does encourage us to set goals and plan ahead, as long as we keep Him and His will for our lives the center of these plans.
Which is why I’m excited about Grace Goals, a series of 5 workshops that walk us through the process of setting goals from a biblical perspective.
My friend, fellow blogger and sister in Christ, Arabah Joy, created Grace Goals. She not just created it, but lived it. Grace Goals has helped her accomplish so much including changing her family’s eating to real food, trained for a marathon, launched an online course for bloggers and completed several writing projects.
Best of all , the grunt work is done for us! This 48-paged PDF will walk us through the entire process. I love it when the guess work is taken out of things, don’t you?
