Nearly 9 months are down…Are you meeting your goals for 2010?!

Hello World!!! 

Can you feel September in the air? I can…It’s crisper outside…my eczema is starting to act up again…college football is on television (Go Dawgs!)…

Guess what y’all? That means we have just over three months to accomplish our goals and dreams for 2010! As I scan over my list, I’m feeling pretty good I must say…not every one has been checked off, but I’m getting there…

I will share a few of them with you…I paid off my credit card, and I am faithfully building up my emergency fund with God’s help! And I have other financial goals that God is helping me to accomplish as well…Yay God! Yay me!

Let me share a few verses with you that I was reminded of last week that inspire me to continue to chase after my goals and dreams for this year…

Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  Hebrews 11:1

This verse tells me that just because I don’t see the evidence of what I hope for in my life does not mean that my blessing is not on the way…God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him, and He is working miracles all of the time…

Dear friends, do not be surprised at the painful trial you are suffering, as though something strange were happening to you. 1 Peter 4:12

People (especially me) don’t like to hear this, but Christians are guaranteed trouble, hardship and setbacks…Why? Because trouble, hardship and setbacks build up our faith!  And without faith, it is impossible to please God…And I find that I trust in God most when I am forced to do so..and you know what they say…”You cannot have a testimony without a test!”

But a time is coming, and has come, when you will be scattered, each to his own home. You will leave me all alone. Yet I am not alone, for my Father is with me. I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.  John 16:32-33

But guess what y’all? Although we are guaranteed trouble, hardship and setbacks, we are also  guaranteed that we are never alone because the Father is with us…AND we are guaranteed that we have the victory because God has the victory!

I hope these verses inspire you to keep striving for your goals for 2010! It ain’t ova till it’s ova!!! I was also reminded of a time-tested saying last week…”If the Lord brought you to it, He will bring you through it!”

Any thoughts?

Pastor Shirley Caesear’s song “You’re Next in Line for a Miracle” comes to mind this morning…Enjoy!

  1. I joined Weight Watchers last week ~ its never too late :-). Congrats on reaching some and striving towards other financial goals. Nothing like financial freedom!

    • Congrats to you! I have friends who have joined Weight Watchers and are doing great. And I did a similar program in college! It worked for me too back then…how much are you trying to lose, if you don’t mind me asking? And thanks:)

  2. A lot ~ lol! About 20 – 30. Not bad at all – I’ve had larger goals. So far I am loving it because I really can have whatever I want … its just a matter of how much :-).

    • 20 to 30 huh, that’s not a lot…and yes, portion sizes matter almost more than anything in my experience…Congratulations in advance on meeting your goal!
