Home Group Prayer & a Few Goals for '08

Tonight continues our week of prayer and this evening we had prayer groups in Northsiders homes all over the city. We went to the group at Joel & Sheri's here in Wesley Chapel. It was good. We pressed in and believed for great things. Victor had a few words from God about this year and not limiting God...Bernie prayed a powerful prayer of truly leaving 2007 behind and letting it go. My husband had a vision of something great happening with the children and youth as one stepped forward to "light the candle" of revival.

At the conclusion it was our assignment for everyone to share what they were believing for in increase in their lives in 2008. I personally shared what I have been struggling with concerning goals.

Normally I have a boat load of resolutions. I love goals. I have always thrived on them. But this year I'm just not "feeling it" although I'm wildly excited about the year! What's happening with me? Well, it's like this. Everytime I go to map things out I just feel a check in my spirit from the Lord and it's like He's telling me to leave a lot of margin because some very unexpected things - great and mighty things - are going to happen and I am going to have to be prepared.

It's not like I have a blank slate in front of me. Not at all. That would be rather impossible. Honestly, there are too many roles I have to fill out of necessity, let alone doing a few things I love to do and am passionate about. However, as far as things I normally would be writing in stone and getting prepared for at this time -I'm just not going after it as hard. I have a feeling I'm just going to need some space to take care of stuff, so I'm leaving it there. Hence, the reason I don't have some big list for this year. However, here are a few things that regardless of any huge thing happening, I'm going to do this this year:

1) Go to the next level in my intimate walk with the Lord.
2) Continue to pursue greater fitness.
3) Do a few projects around my house in the way of painting and decorating that I want to do.
4) Work on a new book proposal.
5) Take a trip with Savanna.

And there you have it my friends -- a few goals for 2008. What are your goals?
