GODLY GOAL SETTING
As I sit in contemplation on the things that must come about this year, One thing is for certain, In order to accomplish anything, there must be accountability. I submit that I missed my mark because there was no value placed on any particular event. Consequently, here I am wallowing in should’ve, could’ve, and would’ve, Hm.. I do know that whatever plans I make must be submitted to God for His approval, After all, He is the ultimate accountability partner, Amen?!
Where to start, where to start?

DEUTERONOMY 33:23 And to Nephtali he said, O Nephtali, satisfied with favour, and full blessing of the Lord: possess the west and the south

As the Gospel was being moved throughout Macedonia and Asia minor, no one had a clue how much of an impact their obedience would have; (1Thessalonians1: 7-8) 7 so that ye were ensamples to all who believe in Macedonia and Achaia 8 For from you sounded out the word of the Lord, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith to God-ward is spread abroad;…
I pray to remain sure footed and not be easily be distracted by circumstance. To run toward the goal of our faith as if my life depended on it, because, it does!
(1 Corinthians 9:24) Do you not know that in a race all runners run, but only one gets the prize? run in such a way to get the prize
