Happy New Year’s Eve! Are you enjoying time with friends and family, joining the crowd in Times Square or another public place, or — like my hubby and me– staying home in your PJs (maybe with your fur babies, like we have)? Time to prepare for a new day in a new year, with a focus on gratitude, plans, purpose, potential, and all that creates a positive balance in your life. As I suggested in yesterday’s post, challenge yourself in 2017 to not complain or speak negative words!
Here’s your New Year’s Eve inspiration….
“It takes discipline to balance your life.
Examine your life today,
and do what is needed to bring balance
to the way you use your time.
If you have been asking God
to lead you in the way you should go,
you will have a sense of purpose building in you.
You can ask God to help you plan
your day, your week, and your life.
I encourage you to write down the things
that God imprints on your heart to do.
Writing the vision,
and placing it where you can routinely see it,
will help settle the plan God puts inside of you.
Life without purpose is vanity.
Today is an opportunity
to willfully and deliberately seek God
with the intent to know Him better
than we knew Him yesterday.
Today we can deliberately move forward
with the intent to accomplish
good things for the kingdom.”
–Joyce Meyer in “Starting the Day Right”
Balance, planning, and purpose…relevant areas of my life under development right now and definitely a major focus for 2017. I am determined to facilitate breakthroughs in 2017 by continuing to pull down strongholds, overcome hurdles, and achieve a greater level of productivity and victorious living that aligns with the purpose in my life.
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Is your life balanced or off balance right now?
Do you have a plan for 2017 to discover or fulfill your purpose in life?
