The Importance of New Year’s Resolutions & Life Goals
By: Denise N. Fyffe
We have just transitioned into a new year. It is a time to launch our goals and resolutions, which were decided in December. Some people wholly believe in this practice and others do not.
As a Christian, I have learned to trust in this process.
Why, because it focuses me on hearing from God for all aspects of my life and His plans in the earth.
From Dec 1 to Dec 31st, I shunned all distractions, took a break from social media and spiritually tuned into God. Thankfully, I can report that I have come away with a new game plan for my life and ministry in 2019.
Think about it, even Jesus set plans and goals. When he started his ministry, he set out to accomplish certain things with the time He had. And, He left instructions for when He would depart and no longer physically be around to guide new Christians and his disciples. Though he did send the Holy Spirit.
This is a good example to follow. So feel free to look back, assess and make life goals for all aspects of your life – especially the spiritual aspect – because we won’t be here forever.
