Has pursuing your passion become a distant memory? Your purpose matters! Pursuing your purpose matters, especially to God! Life is busy, kids need us, committements pile up, but that doesn’t mean you should shove your passion aside. Here are 6 simple steps you can take to work towards the goals God has planted in your heart! Look for a video this weekend on this resource.
Galatians 3:3 “Are you so foolish ? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human efforts?”
Anyone who has a goal they’re trying to achieve understands that it takes self discipline, a plan, and a willingness to see it through. You may have the perfect recipe ready to reach your goal. You have all the right ingredients, the step by step instructions and it appears as though you are on the right track then all of a sudden everything stalls. You can’t understand why? You’re doing everything right so what happened, why are you at a standstill or worse everything seems to be falling apart? Often times we miss the most important ingredient and that is we don’t include God in our goals. Instead we rely on our own human efforts. Before we purse any goal we first need to take it to God, if we don’t we’re just spinning our wheels. When we take it to God he gives us the necessary guidance, tools, and people we need to achieve our goals. I think one of the primary reasons people give up on their goals or get frustrated is because they didn’t turn to God first and then keep turning to him! They decide to rely completely on self and when they do that it slowly begins to fall apart. It is foolish to do it on your own when you have a loving God who wants you to succeed and will help you every step of the way. Our human efforts have limits, but the possibilities with God are limitless! Aim for the sky but look up while doing it and nothing is impossible!
