How many of you made resolutions, goals, and to do lists for this year when the clock struck midnight on January 1ST 2012?
Well I am pretty sure we all did. Some of us started full force, and achieved some of them, and some of us, well….It was pretty much said out of excitement of a new year.
Believe it or not, we have gotten half way through 2012, and for some we have become distracted.
Our job status changed, our finances took a plunge and to some it ALL UP…things just HAPPENED.
And with all that, we got discouraged, depressed, unmotivated, and we pretty much fell in the dumps. We had a list of things to accomplish by June 2012, but some are still contemplating on how to accomplish the first item on the list.
Proverbs 16:3 (GNT) says this, “Ask the Lord to bless your plans, and you will be successful carrying them out”. Whatever it is that you have decided to do, whether it’s losing weight, going back to school, writing a book, starting a business or ministry, the key is God has to be first in making decisions.
If everything is done to give God the glory, your plans will succeed. Now I’m not saying it will be easy, but it is possible. Mark 9:23 says “Everything is possible, to him who believes”, but you first have to believe.
Always remember a good idea is a good idea three weeks from now, four weeks from now, or even one year from now. Take the time to learn all you can about your goal, your vision; take notes, meditate, pray and study. It will be worth it, once it has been accomplished.
Habakkuk 2:2 says “Write the vision and make it plain “. By writing your vision or your dream down on paper, you believe that this will soon happen in your life. Always remember God desires that we prosper and succeed in ALL areas of our life.
So what’s your plan? Are you planning to get some things done by December 31st 2012? Or do you do you want that piece of paper to get dusty and go through yet another year, saying what you should have done wishing you could turn back the hands of time? Like Nike says “Just Do It”!!!
I know what I’m doing, I have it all planned out-plans to take care of you, not to abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for ~Jeremiah 29:11~
