Are you waiting for an answer to prayer, and you don’t know what to do? You’re really trying to remain patient, but you need wisdom that can only come from the Holy Spirit.
It is a part of our culture to make big goals at the beginning of each year, but how many of us spend the time to assess where we are at the end of that same year? This list will help you to ask yourself the questions that will prepare you for an even better 2017.
- Did you make a list of goals or things you were believing God for this year? If so, what did you get vs. not get? (Include miracles, dreams, etc).
- Are there at least 10 people in your life who helped you this year? How can you make this known to them? Tell them now, that you are going to need them as a part of your (W)inner circle for 2017.
- What do you need from God for 2017? List it now.
- If you could change anything about you, what would it be? List specific things you want to lose. (temper, addiction, bad friendships, toxic relationships,etc).
- If you had died earlier in the year what would have been your legacy that people would have been talking about for Summer 2016? If it is a bad one you have the time to change it and work on things.
- Do you have a backup career or second set of skills that you have acquired?
- Who are you currently serving? (An elderly parent, a pastor, a volunteer cause, etc).
- How is your health? Is everything in check and by the way when will be your next doctor’s visit? (before 2016 ends).
- I don’t want you to compare yourself – you are unique, but who are the two persons you draw great inspiration from that basically sum up who you want to be in life? (Keep in mind that Jesus Christ is who you should ultimately want to measure up to. He is our measuring rod. See Ephesians 4).
- Please consider getting into a professional circle or getting a life coach that can help you reach your 2017 targets. Will you do that?
DON’T GIVE UP!
