Goals

goals-header

Since birth, we learn to strive towards goals. Some of these goals have been learning to walk, learning to talk, graduating school…all the way up to a career, marriage, children, and financial goals. With each goal met, we slowly build our confidence. There have been times when we made mistakes and our confidence was affected, but with each mistake is a valuable lesson. It is through those lessons that we are able to gain wisdom, and then ultimately and more effectively…reach another goal. Sometimes we become frustrated when these lessons take longer than our human minds are comfortable with. Keep in mind, God may not be allowing certain things to take place, so that His bigger plan…more effectively may take place. Be confident in knowing that God knows the desires of your heart. He knows the goals you have set for you, and if you trust in Him, He will guide you and abundantly bless you!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. PROVERBS 3:5-6

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised. HEBREWS 10:35-36

God is with us.
