The new year always brings a sense of hope and inspiration to most people. It gives everyone the opportunity to start anew. I myself always look forward to the fresh start that the new year brings. For this year, here are my goals for 2015.
Reading enriches my soul and my spirit. I hope to spend more time reading, not just for read-alouds with my children but by myself. My list includes the Bible, inspirational books and the classics.
Traveling educates. I want to learn more about people and culture and there is no better way to do this than leaving one’s comfort zone and traveling to a new place. With the provision that the Lord will provide, I do hope to see more of the Philippines and the neighboring Asian countries.
Writing expresses one’s thoughts and allows one to process all that he has learned. I pray that I will be more consistent this year, writing down the things I have learned, the blessings that I have received and the growth that I will experience all year though.
Blessing others is the reason why God blesses us. Praying for opportunities to open up so we can bless others, especially the poor. I will be doing this together with my entire husband and my children. We want to be more intentional in sharing our blessings this year.
Spending time with God in prayer rejuvenates and refocuses us. I will wake up early this year and start my day with the Lord more consistently. Nothing else is more important than Him.
How about you? What are your goals for this new year?
