As I shared last week, my big goal for 2017 is to develop a stronger prayer life. I am excited for the first time in forever about starting a New Year’s resolution. The difference this year is I am only going to be focusing on ONE goal for 2017. My prayer life. I did a challenge last September, and I did great during the challenge, but afterward, back to my old habit of NOT praying.
I would buy prayer journals, make lists, but nothing stuck. This year I am going to use the entire year to focus on prayer. This year I’m not going to give up, and this year is going to be different.
How do I know?
Start Jan. 2 I’m going to do one workshop a week. Each workshop can be completed in one sitting – maybe two. Here are the workshops:
Workshop 1 – It Starts with a Desire
Workshop 2 – Getting God’s Approval
Workshop 3 – Refine Your Vision
Workshop 4 – Finding Your Motivation
Workshop 5 – Gathering Grace
After each workshop, there are worksheet pages to fill out. You are encouraged to examine your motives for changing, the real heart-reason behind your goal, and the importance of getting God’s approval and help with your goal. After those workshops, you do the real work of making a plan. You determine how you (and God) will change and develop towards your goal.
I love Arabah Joy’s process because it is GOD FOCUSED. So many times we leave God out of our plans, but really He is our reason for success! A close relationship with Him is going to be the secret to change.
Do you want to see a real change this year? YOU are worth it! Your heart, habits, and health are worth a little time and finances. The course only costs you three cups of coffee from Starbucks. YOU are worth far more than that. Don’t neglect yourself this year.
