NEW YEAR GOALS


I’m working on many a blog post for this upcoming year, answering emails about how I do goals/planning/dreaming for the new year. But wanted to share some scripture with you.  So far, I’ve been in full on mom mode with no time to dream/plan/goal, but God has stirred up a bunch in my heart this past month.

“Search me O God, and known my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me and lead me to the everlasting (Psalm 139:23-24).

To commit our plans to the Lords means that we give Him the say and seek His will in our life, not our own! It means trusting that God’s will is better than our own wants and desires. To commit our plans to Him is to genuinely want His plans for us to succeed, not the ones we have made for ourselves.


As we reassess our resolutions by committing them to the Lord, let us ask that He will give us the discernment to distinguish the goals and plans that are pure, noble, beneficial and honoring to Him, from those that are not in His best interest for the woman He’s created us to be. The result is success in God’s eyes – the modeling of our inner selves – lasting transformation that begins with our heart.

  1. Oh, how much I love this! We can make all the resolutions we want, but unless we commit them to the Lord and follow His will for them (and us) nothing is really going to change.
