And the Lord answered me: “Write down the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it.”
Do you make goals at the beginning of each year?
Me too! I love a new year, with a fresh start and new goals to set and accomplish.
My husband and I carve time out of our schedules to not just set goals, but to put action items to them to ensure they are achieved.
What’s a goal without the proper plan to reach them, right?
As I sat down thinking about what I wanted out of my personal life this year, several topics emerged:
I sense God wanting to do a new thing this year.
I want to show more love and affection to my husband, my children, my friends and my community.
No More Fear
I want to overcome lingering fears that are keeping me from walking in my purpose.
I want to stay focused on the purpose that God has for me in this season. I don’t want to get distracted by things that sound good, but aren’t God’s best for me.
I feel Him drawing me in to a greater surrender to His Word, His Will and His Purpose for my life.
As I began writing down each of these desires, there were numerous others that I really wanted to add to the list, but I couldn’t see how I could include them all in one year.
And then an idea arose….
What if I could focus on all these things through an intentional Bible reading plan?
I’m taking my wants, desires and expectations and seeking the scriptures on how to carry out the action items. I’ve created a calendar of 12 areas that I will be working on this year—one for each month. I’ve provided a free download of the schedule here.
Perhaps this process would be beneficial for you too? Rather than just telling you what I’m doing, I want to invite you to join me on this journey.
I would love the company and honestly, the accountability. When we know we have others along side of us, it gives us the endurance to keep going when the going gets tough!
By signing up, you’ll receive an in depth monthly bible reading plan each month with specific scriptures for each day. You’ll also learn to pray and declare these scriptures and share what God is speaking to you through His Word. As a bonus, you’ll have other resources and encouragement made available to you along the way!
We can connect on Instagram too! There will be daily encouragements that correspond to the verses we are studying. You can follow me @flourishingtoday! Also hashtag #FlourishingintheWord and tag me to share what God’s speaking to you on this journey!
I can’t wait to hear all of the amazing things God will do as we get intentional with reading the Word in 2018!
