As each year begins I see the new calendar as an opportunity for many accomplishments. With high expectations I set goals and make vows to fulfill them but as the months go by I’m tempted to dart from one good thing to another. Then winter rolls around and I look back on the year with some regret for not staying focused. Half-read books; projects started but not finished, issues or problems I began to tackle until some other urgent thing would catch my attention. I don’t mean to say the year was wasted, but distractions, even good ones can get us sidetracked from our goals.
What are your goals? Do you make resolutions? I’m making just one: “Commit your way to the LORD, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.” Psalm 37:5
It seems simple yet if I will begin each day committing to Him the time that I have, He has promised to direct my path through the urgencies that attract my attention. Focus on Him and He will help you accomplish many things…one chicken at a time.
“Trust the LORD… surrender all your ways to Him and He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
