Ready….Set….Focus!

Ready…Set…Focus!

Well the New Year is off and moving right along and so am I.    It is amazing that next week it will have already been a month since we celebrated Christmas, which only tells me that it’s time to get focused so that this can be a banner year!

It is amazing to me how many times I’ve made the same missteps over and over again because I never had my focus on the right things. I would set goals, but run out of steam to accomplish them.  I would then take lots of time trying to figure out why I couldn’t achieve the goal.    The first thing that must happen in trying to set any new goal is to make for sure that we are focused on the right things and for the right reasons!

We’ve been learning about a renewed mind in our church services.  It has really come at a good time as the teachings have really helped me to see why I have reached goals in the past.

Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he

To accomplish anything we must see ourselves as a victor not a victim!  God has purpose us to do great things upon the earth!  He has purpose behind everything that is in His word, so if we apply it to our lives we will see the results that the word promises.  In order to achieve our goals we must change our behavior of the past. We can’t be winners if we keep seeing ourselves as losers!  We must have a renewed mind to know what hindered us in the past and how to press in to achieve them now.  I believe the scripture below is a great starting point to begin to see change in our lives and to see our goals being reached.

Romans 12:1 (KJV) I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

My number one goal for 2015 is to get rid of “stinking thinking!” I must put the word of  God before my eyes and get His image of who I am in Him  on the inside of me.  If I operate from a renewed mindset, then I can see myself achieving all that He has called me to do!  This is not a conceited or boastful stance, but instead it is a humbling position.  I place all of my hopes, dreams, goals in His hands and totally rely on Him to co-labor with me to achieve each and every goal!  This is exciting to me because He has never set us up to fail!

I would love to hear about how the Lord has helped you to  accomplish your goals this year!  Please feel free to contact me so that we can rejoice together!
