Goals for 2018

Spread the love

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
    and he will establish your plans.”  Proverbs 16:3
I’ve prayed over it all week.  It’s time to establish my goals for 2018.  I know the verse, I’ve got the word, now it’s time to add the goals.
It actually is so hard to choose.  Mainly because I still need a lot of work.  It’s useless to try and fix everything at once.  It will only lead to defeat, and inevitably failure.  Failure in itself is not bad, in fact it’s necessary to learn and grow.  The important part to failure is picking yourself back up, brushing yourself off and getting back on the road.
As I’ve prayed over these goals, I’ve tried to make them realistic.  Something I can and actually will do.  One of the passions God has re-awakened in me in 2017 is writing, hence the blog.  He’s brought writer’s into my life who have inspired and encouraged me.  I’m adding a fourth goal this year, one for writing.  What I learned in 2017 is the most important thing about writing is you must do it.  It’s not about being a best selling author, it’s about developing the gifts God has given you.
If you’re unsure of what your gifts are, ask yourself, what do you love?  Answering this question can point you in the right direction.
My goals for 2018:
Spiritual:  Praying over my calendar on Monday mornings.  Finding and completing a domestic mission trip.
Physical:  Continue my two classes a week minimum.  Increase cardio workouts to 5-6 times a week.  (Cardio meaning walking, biking, zumba etc.)
Financial: Come in on budget personally each month.
Writing:  Write a blog weekly.
That’s it.  That is what I’m going to work towards in 2018.  God help me, it’s the only way I can do it.  His first prompting is for me to create reminders and add it to my calendar so I don’t forget what I’m working towards.
Happy New Year Everyone!  I pray you are able to set and accomplish your goals!
