Welcome to the weekly Wednesday Wisdom email, and Happy New Year! Every week, I'll send you one thought, one Bible verse, and one question to think on as you hit the middle of the week.
If you're interested in where I'm preaching or where I'm playing music at next, you can click here to view my upcoming events.
If you haven't downloaded the Life Audit Assessment, you can do that by clicking here. It's a great way to assess where your life currently is so you can start taking the steps to get the life you want to have!
Let’s get going!
It’s the beginning of the year, so resolutions are on everyone’s mind. New year, new me, and all that. Did you know that only 9% of people felt successful about keeping their resolutions at the end of the year in 2016?
Instead of just making resolutions, take the time to figure out the steps in order to achieve the goals that are in those resolutions. Break it down as detailed as you can so that you’ll be able to see the journey (and also the progress) and you get closer to following through with your resolutions!
“Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.” - Isaiah 43:18
In this portion of scripture, the Lord is telling Israel through the prophet Isaiah (but it can be applied to us) that we don’t need to worry about the past. He has brought us through hardship before, and it’s important to have faith that he will continue to do that for us.
What is one goal you want to achieve this year?
Think about this for a while, and once you have your answer, write. it. down. Don't just keep it in your head. Put it somewhere you can see it every day to remind you to take the steps to achieve that goal!
Thank you so much for signing up, and I'm looking forward to achieving goals with you as we journey through 2022 together!
