The past 6 months of my life have been some of the most difficult of my entire life. While some of the events may have seemed minor to others the combination of them was just plain overwhelming. After about week 2 of the start of these events, I just knew God was calling me and telling me you need to rely on me for strength and comfort and stop doing it by yourself.

So I started returning to my morning quiet time and trying to make Him a bigger part of my life. Yet still not the center of it. I did feel better and my circumstances went back to “normal” and life was better for a few days or so. Then yet another struggle came. Finally after this cycle –struggle – relief – struggle, I knew that God was telling me that my normal needed to change. He was basically hitting me over the head and telling me “you NEED me at all times and for every moment of every day!!”

At that time, I checked the Faithfully Yours site and saw the post about the Faith Goals webinar, I just knew I needed to be there. I signed up and attended and gained many wonderful ideas. God was reminding me that I needed to focus my life on Him and that having Faith Goals would help me to do this.

I spent time praying and sitting in silence listening for God’s voice to tell me what areas of my life He wanted me to change. He led me to these 4 goals by the verses He gave to me to read and study as well as various outside sources. The key one was -“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Psalm 119:05 as a reminder that it all comes back to His Word and that I must spend time with Him there!!

The one goal I wish I had added and may figure out how to add it as an overall goal for my year is “to bring Glory to God in all that I do and say.” I am thinking that may just be a layout of it’s own!!

Supplies used:
