Fresh Year, Fresh Goals, Fresh Ideas

Just a few days of the year left and I am beginning to kick into gear for a fantastic 2009. So here’s my immediate thoughts…need to do the right things first, get some quality time with God, make the year one of purpose and one that is immensely fruitful.

Thought I would share my thoughts for 2009. You have to have a plan. The old adage ‘if you fail to plan, you plan to fail’ is so true…with that ringing in my ears I have goals and ideas for various areas of my life which I will share over the next few days.

I guess posting them in a blog is the ultimate in accountability. Spiritual goals are often the easiest to think about. Read what Mark Batterson wrote on his blog that those who have been Christians for say 25 years should have 25 years experience but unfortunately many have 1 years experience repeated 25 times.

To make sure I don’t repeat stuff and I progress in my walk with God in 2009 I include the following goals…

1. Read my Bible through in the first 6 months (started).
2. Fast more – determined to fast at least 10% of the year.
3. 40 days early prayer from next Monday – praying for some particular things including Xcel Darlington and the people who are part of it.

There will be more. I am however determined to stay as close to God as possible. What are you doing this year to help mature your relationship with God?
