Many people begin the year intending to read their Bible in a year, eventually fizzling out around Leviticus or March. Daily Bible Reading is not always easy to maintain as this habit can be upset by dramatic changes to your daily routine. So how do we get into the word and remain in it daily?… Continue reading How to Stick to Daily Bible Reading
Note from Elihu: I'm sure many of you have already made your goals, but if you're like me, the goals get re-evaluated frequently. This post applies to any time we make plans or goals or even dream dreams. I hope your year is off to a lovely start! May God bless you with grace and… Continue reading The One Thing You Need to Do Before You Set New Year’s Resolutions
On this New Year’s Day, we begin a new trip around the sun, full of expectations, hopes, and goals. Is one of your goals to draw nearer to God?

Welcome to life---a constant stream of unexpected twists and turns, frustrating interruptions and derailments.
Someone out there is feeling aimless today. It might even be you.
Someone out there is running sluggishly, ready to give up. It might even be you.
Remember those goals/resolutions you created at the beginning of the year? You do? Wait... you don't? Where's your list of goals? "oh, right.... that list was in my head." "Goals? What goals?" "My New Year's Resolutions? Well... Uh..." That's where a lot of people are by this point in the year---all those great plans are often under a pile of papers or covered in dust. If you are on track with most of your goals for the year, congratulations! Keep up the good work! If you still have your list of goals and have fallen behind, there's no time like the present to rev them up again.
Tomorrow is the last day of January. One month down, eleven to go. How are you coming on your goals? You may be shifting uncomfortably in your seat, but there's no need! I'm here to encourage you to pick up the pieces and keep going! If you're on track, bravo! If you're way behind, it's time to lace up those shoes, dust off that bible, break out those knee pads and get crackin!
Today is the day we start taking our goals from ideation to reality. Are you ready to start the journey?
