I had an interesting dream last night. I want to share it with you. But first –
Share on Social Media:
God is for you! There are times you might struggle to believe that. Moments of deep disappointment, loss and loneliness. Long periods of waiting that bring discontent and doubt.
The fact remains – God loves you deeply. He wants you to succeed and do well in your life. He has a special place in His heart just for you. God has many blessings and good things for you to enjoy. He also knows how difficult life can be. With the presence of sin, this world is in continual tension, and that’s challenging to live with.
So, He names Himself for you.
I hope you have a person or 2 praying for you. In today’s busy world, people are limited in availability, memory, and understanding of your life. So, committed intercession is valued and precious – a wonderful gift! But it is limited . . . because people are limited.
There is another person – very dependable, not limited, available continually – who is praying for you night and day: Jesus.

There is a magical ingredient that changes everything when you throw it into the mix of your life. It makes the dough rise, fills out the flavor, defines the recipe of a day. It raises options in issues, kneads out a problem, sweetens the sorrow, and serves up mercy.
In Part 1, we explored 5 super simple processes to develop a 1-Page Goals Sheet. Those 5 steps give you approximately 1/2 page of data. Now develop the other 1/2 page. You are very close to being done with some great goals in place.
Before heading into the last 1/2 of this great life management 1-page resource, you need to refer back to part 1 for a moment. You started a Step By Step Action Plan. Step #1 helped you to establish some basics. The results of this step did not go on your Goals Sheet. Step #2, you asked good questions to identify a short list of things you want to make progress in. Steps #1 and #2 served to “prime your pump.” However, you were told the short list from Step #2 goes on your Goals Sheet. This is where that short list goes. We are going to develop it now.
First, we MUST talk about goals and objectives. They are critical if you are going to live with purpose and not waste your life.
Goals and objectives:
Goals are different from objectives. Let’s look.
This has been the most difficult election process I remember. So many concerning things leading up to this week of voting. I think the best one-liner is now: VOTE: prayerfully!
I’ve been pondering how – even in a country where we help decide policy – there are still so many things outside our individual control. Honestly, that is part of the frustration with this election.
