Just before 2017

Compliments of the beautiful season to everyone. I pray the blessings of the season remain with us in Jesus name. Amen. 

It’s few days to 2017 and this is our last post for the year 2016 🎬🎬🎬

Usually, people set goals or wait to have a new year resolution. For me, I have goals prepared for the next year some days before it arrives. To this end, I invite and encourage you all to set realistic and even unbelievable goals for 2017. By the time this post is published you have 3 days to do that. They do not have to be in any order. Just make a list of all of them and tick them off when achieved. Always check to see how much you have achieved so you know how to go about what and what remains.

I have divided mine into Five major categories which I always check quarterly to tick off those that are done and those that remain. I use my “note” application on my phone. Work with what feels comfortable for you.

  • Spiritual Goals
  • Career/Business Goals
  • Family/Home Goals 
  • Financial Goals
  • Interpersonal Relationship Goals

Just like a footballer keeps moving forward towards the goal post to earn a point by sending the ball right into the net. Let us all be encouraged to move forward into the new year ensuring we earn every point from that goal.

Bible Verses to inspire us :

Habakkuk‬ ‭2:2-3‬ ‭(ERV‬‬) – “The Lord answered me, “Write down what I show you. Write it clearly on a sign so that the message will be easy to read. This message is about a special time in the future. This message is about the end, and it will come true. Just be patient and wait for it. That time will come; it will not be late.”

Proverbs‬ ‭24:27‬ ‭(ERV‬‬) – “First get your fields ready, next plant your crops, and then build your house.”

Isaiah‬ ‭54:2-3‬ ‭(ERV) ‬‬- ““Make your tent bigger. Open your doors wide. Don’t think small! Make your tent large and strong, because you will grow in all directions. Your children will take over many nations and live in the cities that were destroyed.”

Philippians‬ ‭3:13-14‬ ‭(ERV)‬‬ – “Brothers and sisters, I know that I still have a long way to go. But there is one thing I do: I forget what is in the past and try as hard as I can to reach the goal before me. I keep running hard toward the finish line to get the prize that is mine because God has called me through Christ Jesus to life up there in heaven.”

Finally as we all begin the new year, let’s remember that we get ALL THINGS when we seek God kingdom and live righteously FIRST. No matter how impossible your goals may seem to even you. Claim the promises of God in Matthew 19:26 (ERV)  “Jesus looked at them and said, “This is something that people cannot do. But God can do anything.””

Confession: “I can do all things [which He has called me to do] through Him who strengthens and empowers me [to fulfill His purpose–I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace.]” ‭‭Philippians 4:13‬ ‭(AMP‬‬)

Beautiful New Year.

God bless you and yours.
