Focused Action 2015

Friday, January 2, 2015

A blessed new year to you dear one! I pray that you and your family had a great Christmas season. I want to answer these "focused action" questions and look back in a year to see how well I did. Do join me if you'd like!

What is the single biggest time-waster in your life, and what will you do about it this year? - Mindless browsing and dreading go neck to neck. I am planning on being more aware of my goals as well as time management. As far as dreading, I'll be reading the Bible and that will help with my attitude.
For whose salvation will you pray most fervently this year? A couple of friends and family members who are not walking with the Lord yet.
What one thing could you do to improve your prayer life this year? Just pray more.
What single thing that you plan to do this year will matter most in 10 years? In eternity? Get to know God better and lead my children to having a relationship with Him.
What area of your life most needs simplifying, and what's one way you could simplify in that area? My home needs simplifying. Being focused on finishing what I start can really help that area.
What habit would you most like to establish this year? The spiritual discipline of fasting.
Who do you most want to encourage this year? My mommy friends. We're in such physically demanding season of life.
What's one new way you could be a blessing to your pastor (or to another who ministers to you) this year? I can be encouraging to my husband as well as serving him with a generous attitude.
What's one thing you could do this year to enrich the spiritual legacy you will leave to your children and grandchildren? I can study the Bible and get to know God better through His Word.
• What book, in addition to the Bible, do you most want to read this year? Holy Spirit, an Introduction by John Bevere.
What one thing do you most regret about last year, and what will you do about it this year? Dreading things. I will be more mindful to get God's perspective about whatever it is I dread.
What's the most important trip you want to take this year? We want to go on a few family getaways.
• What skill do you most want to learn or improve this year? Pubic speaking.
What one biblical doctrine do you most want to understand better this year, and what will you do about it? The work of the Person of the Holy Spirit in the life of a Believer.
If those who know you best gave you one piece of advice, what would they say? Would they be right? What will you do about it? Pace yourself would be the great advice. I'd make sure to rest every day and do one thing at a time. I also would always have clear priorities (God and family).
What's the most important new item you want to buy this year? We're not focusing on acquiring things but I'd like to be a giver in the same way God is.
In what area of your life do you most need change, and what will you do about it this year? My mind needs to be renewed the most. I'll follow the advice found in Romans 12:2 and I will study the Bible for whatever the Word touches, it changes.
