This year I have decided that instead of making resolutions I am going to adopt a mission statement. I realize that you rarely achieve a goal you never set, but after some reflecting I think that I will choose to view each day in light of my mission statement.
I want to live each day simply and intentionally to God's glory.
I know that seems broad, but I continue to desire to simplify my life. As a pastor's wife there are many things that are not optional and in addition I tend to add more things to my schedule, this year I want to live each day as simply as possible. There will still be things that are expected, but I want to limit the things that I have a choice in participating. I want to live intentionally, I don't want to feel that life just happened, I want to be purposeful in all that I do. My relationship with God, my relationship with my husband, my children and my friends. I want to actively pursue each of these and be the best I can be. At the end of each day I want to ask myself did I glorify God in my life today, did I spend time with Him, did I honor Him with my choices, did I follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
Perhaps a check list would be easier in some respects, but for 2014 I have decided not to view the year as a whole, but each day as it's own chance to fail, but more importantly achieve my mission for the year! I pray that you will set goals that honor God and bring glory to His name. May 2014 be a great year in your life!
