Eeeeeeeek! How is it the last day of January? Crazy! This year I have taken the entire month of January to plan and prepare for 2014 - setting goals, and creating action plans to accomplish these goals - all with the help of Lara Casey's Powersheets. And to be honest, I kinda love it. I love feeling prepared and having accountability. I love taking time and prayer to decide on goals for the new year. I'm thinking this may be a thing for me from now on...
But ok! My 5th a final goal for 2014 - and probably the most important one!
Goal 5 // To make my relationship with Jesus a priority and commit to prayer.
This year I want to seek Him even more. With more of my heart, more of my mind and more of my time. You see, I'm pretty selfish with my time - especially since having a baby. It's like I get a few free seconds and tend to waste them "relaxing" or laying on the couch watching empty TV. Not anymore. This year I am committing to taking my extra seconds, minutes and hours - and even that time that is not "extra" - and spending with Him. Mostly in prayer. Honestly, I struggle with prayer. The dicipline of it. Sure I pray when I wake up, before meals and when I go to bed, but rarely do I carve out time during my day to truly commit to prayer - other than the two second "Lord, Help me!" prayer. I spend time reading devotionals and listening to praise music, but again, it's the "still" time that I am missing. So this year, I'm hoping to commit to time and prayer - even when I don't feel like I have anything to say.
So there they are! My five goals! If you missed the other parts of this series you can find them here:
