As promised in my previous Goal Setting post here, I am sharing the goals I am working on this year.
My first goal for 2019 has been to cultivate my relationship with Jesus Christ. This should be every Christian’s goal on a daily basis. I want to spend more time in prayer and reading the Bible in order to become more like Jesus each day.
A Notepad– To record thoughts and/or questions that come to mind. I also use it to jot down thoughts that distract me while studying. By writing them down, I can focus more clearly on my studies because I know I can come back to them later.
A Missionary Calendar – This is a calendar from our church which features pastors in a foreign country that our church supports. It’s in my bag as a reminder to pray for them each week. Unfortunately, I can’t provide a photo of this as their safety is a concern
Some goals aren’t going to have set numbers or clear finish lines to measure your progress, as is the case with this goal. I’ve resolved that at the end of 2019, if I feel I have moved closer to Christ rather than farther away, I will consider it met. A good thing about setting goals, however, is that YOU get to decide the factors which determine your success.
If moving closer to God is one of your goals for 2019, please share the steps you’re taking in the comments below. I would love to hear about them.
