Wow! Some times I still have to take a step back and think, geez - what was I thinking these last few years. I guess the twenties are truly meant for finding yourself. JOY GOALS? Really, Aukele? Yes! If you need some background information on JOY, go ahead and read this post, Focusing on Joy. It pretty much sets the tone for me, for 2014.
So how does one create JOY goals?? I was stumped, as well, for a little bit. Then it dawned on me - that it needs to be appropriated from the source. I don't know what your source of pure, true JOY is; but mine is Jesus. I guess in a sense these JOY goals are truly spiritual goals that I'm setting for myself - but at the end of it all, the benefit is to live a life full of JOY. So we'll stick with JOY goals, shall we?
2014 JOY GOALS:
- Trust in the Lord - Sometimes I still do not cast all my cares on Him; and I still hold back in letting everything go. Trusting in the Lord with EVERYTHING is definitely a work in progress. I know, though, that once I do - I will have peace and JOY in knowing that He is taking care of everything as long as I trust in Him, and follow His Word.
- Build my relationship with God - I need to seek Him more. I need to talk to Him and listen to Him more. I need to dedicate more time to praise Him and worship Him.
- Get connected in my Church
- Actively involve God in all my decisions. This one kind of coincides with #1 and #2, but I just wanted to highlight it, because it is something that I truly want to work on this year.
Do you have any spiritual goals this year? If so, I'd love to hear about them in the comments below!
