  • … I find my sweet spot in ministry, using my gifts, talents, passions and more to serve God and His church.
  • … I take a chance and follow the Holy Spirit’s leading.
  • … I develop the habit of time alone with God.
  • … I focus on being a godly husband or godly wife.

  • … I am going to be available for my spouse and kids.
  • … I am going to put in my schedule time with my family.
  • … I join F3 and start working on Fitness, Fellowship and Faith with a bunch of men.
  • … I go back to school to create some new opportunities.
  • … I learn to speak a new language.
  • … I learn to play an instrument.
  • … I am going to get rid of the resentments in my life.
  • … I am going to forgive those who have hurt me.
  • … I am going to tell someone about Jesus and His great love, sacrifice and plan for humanity.
  • … I going to through a block party and invite my neighbors over.

You get the idea. The list could go on, and on, and on. But here is the truth. God is preparing you for greater things. What will it take for you to get ready, to prepare, to take on, to take off, to trust Him?  If you keep doing what you are doing, you will keep getting what you are getting. Now is the time to set a goal, create a habit, conquer a fear.


First – write it down and pray over it.

Second – tell someone what you are doing and what success looks like.

Third – ask a person to hold you accountable for it.

Fourth – celebrate along the way … it you get behind, get knocked down, or get overwhelmed … get up and start over.

Getting knocked down is not failure ... not getting up is.

So, what kind of year is it going to be for you? Do you believe that this could be the year? I would love to know what you are going to do this year. You can leave a comment below and let me know.
