Occasionally, I set goals to help reengage with my priorities and things I want to be about. Last few weeks, I haven’t felt well physically. I thought since I have nothing else to write about, I might try setting a few goals for this week. It’s not something I regularly do. Even when I do “set goals”, I rarely share them.
Do: This week’s “do” section can be subdivided into two categories: Work of the writing region, and then typical housework. Equally important. For “book-work”, I want to finish editing “Grace Leads”. I need to diligently make this a priority. I want to glorify God in this devotional piece, and others to be drawn closer to Him through it. . . Secondly, housework, the set goals include: cleaning bathroom, bedroom, and begin working on the front of the house. We have an apartment inspection in a couple weeks, and I need to get a jump on preparing for it.
Read: I have a few book reviews that need my attention, so need to devote this week to work on reading through two of the books. For this week, I want to focus on reading “I Tried Until I Almost Died” (Sandra McCollom) and “The Set Apart Woman” (Leslie Ludy).
Learn: Focus on John 10.11, where Jesus yearns for me to learn the significance of what it means that He is my good shepherd. “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life, for his sheep.” I need to focus on this Scripture and allow that to become spirit – knowing – truth, not just head knowledge.
Be: I need to be intentional about how I spend my time when unwell. I need to be more intentional about putting on praise music. I used to let that be one of my primary sources of “entertainment” and it fed my spirit well. Lately, I haven’t been even having music on. So, that’s one step I want to take this week, is to surround myself with words of praise to the Father that are accompanied by a melody.
What are your goals for this week? How do you intentionally spend your time? What is important for you to be intentional in doing?
