regarding resolutions

New Year is a great time for me: I feel like I've got that fresh start and permission of some kind, maybe from myself?, to start after new goals, or reshape last years goals, or refocus... Hopefully it is a time for all of us to seek God and find His heart, and also know His desires for what to do in us and through us in a new season.

I just came across a a helpful reference to use as we look at setting goals for a new year. Don Whitney lists some excellent questions to guide and inspire us as we look forward...

Here's a bit of what he shares:

1. What's one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God?

2. What's the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year?

8. What's the most important way you will, by God's grace, try to make this year different from last year?

10. What single thing that you plan to do this year will matter most in ten years? In eternity?
