In a recent Facebook post, I shared with friends that I’m in a goal-setting and decision-making phase. This is something I take seriously: for all of us, time is fleeting. I’m considering long-term goals and how God might be best honored in my personal decision making. Obedience to my God, for his own kingdom purposes, is my ultimate goal.
To say I have a few things going on is an understatement, evidenced by what is on my desk this morning. God is good to allow me to participate in what He is doing in the lives of women. I pulled a folder from my drawer and found study notes dated back to 2014. I believe they are worthy of sharing:
“As we are obedient to the commands of His Word we are blessed by a closer walk with Him. To walk in the Word means we’ll have to deny our selfish desires and do the will of the Father, regardless of the cost. Our attitudes must reflect the will of our Lord and not our own, which is contrary to all fleshly desires. To sense His direction for our lives, we must walk in the Word where we can draw strength daily. Following God’s direction requires intimacy and obedience. It means we will live with one purpose alone and that will be to accomplish God’s sovereign plan.”
