Before a new year arrives, or shortly after it has begun, most people have some form of “New Year resolutions” - their aspirations and things they want to achieve during the year ahead.
However, as the year goes by, often as soon as the first few weeks or month of the year, the desire to achieve these goals begins to dwindle. Sometimes we even forget the goals we set for ourselves as various distractions come our way. During the course of the year, we leave our resolutions behind to pursue other, more attainable goals. I want to encourage you to set your face like flint; to write your goals down, pray and work toward them as the year continues.
Habakkuk 2:2 reads, “Write the vision and make it plain on the tablets, that he may run who reads it.” What are your goals? Write them down.
This cannot be stressed often or strongly enough – In order to set your goals in motion and start working on achieving them, you must write them down. You can write them on a piece of paper and pin it to the wall, on a chalkboard, or on something else you see every day so you can always refer to it. This will be a constant reminder to keep working on them and eventually achieve them. What do you want to achieve?
Dig deep into your imagination and write what you see. This is your master plan. If writing in a journal works best for you, do so. Or you can do both. I like using journals but I also like to write them with bold colors on a white board so I can always see them. I recently started using an app for my vision boards that allows me to make a collage of pictures of what I want to achieve and what I’m working on. Since I have my phone with me all the time, this enables me to get quick inspiration whenever I need it. Do not be afraid of writing out your ideas, visions, goals and dreams on paper. It is the first step of manifesting your dreams – first on paper, then in reality!
