Last week we shared our Word for the year ahead. A word is a wonderful way to stay focused and encouraged with a one word reminder. This week I was pondering the fact that it’s the time of the year where we consider our hopes, goals and dreams.
King Solomon reminds us in Proverbs 29:18–
Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Living each day or season without a goal is not good for us or for our children. God himself tells us without a vision we perish. Goals give us focus and purpose. They help to clarify our activities and help us evaluate our choices from day to day. Without a goal we have no purpose or focus either. Today I would like to encourage you to see each day as a new day to reach for your goals, hopes and dreams. Pray and seek His heart for you for the year ahead.
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Tony Robbins
