Welcome to my blog if you are stopping by after reading today's devotion! I hope the devotion has you thinking about where God has you... and where He is taking you. Speaking of where He is taking you, do you ever write down your goals? I wrote this post about a recent exercise I went through that I thought that some of you might want to do it as well. I hope it inspires you!
This post inspired me. I took some time over the last several days to create my own list, which I wrote in my journal. I like activities like this because it causes me to dream, and plan. I remember reading in Debbie Macomber's book Knit Together that she wrote down goals for herself and found that she was more likely to achieve the things she wrote down. She even made a list of 30 people she would like to meet and is amazed at how God has orchestrated her meeting many of those people! (She also learned to make a list of the 30 people God wants her to meet, but you'll have to read the book to discover how she learned that lesson!) Another book Write It Down, Make It Happen was based on the premise that we need to write down the things we want to happen in life. I have that book on order right now.
My list was fun to write. I encourage you to write one too. Even though I have seen some wonderful dreams come true for me in the last few years, I never want to stop dreaming because I know God won't quit exceeding my expectations beyond what I can ask or imagine. I love the anticipation of what's next and when I can go back and look at a dated list of when I first gave voice to my dreams, that helps me praise Him all the more!
