I'm a fan of goals. Short term, long term, big and little. I will even write something on my to-do list that I've already done just to mark it off. Yes, I'm that person. There are things that I hope to do this year and I actually want to do them. Small, little, short term, long term. So, this year, I'll be joining in and posting my goals at the beginning of the month and then recapping the next month to see how well I followed through. Feel free to keep me accountable on these things!
Read two books | Guys, at this point, I just want to be able to finish a book.
Create a Facebook page for Polished Arrow | Yes! And if you haven't liked it yet, you can do that by clicking here.
Join the Sunday Post Challenge | I'm way behind on this, but would love to still get some letters out before this challenge is over.
Memorize at least one Scripture verse | Didn't happen. No excuses.
Make time for prayer | Yes and no. I've been wanting to set aside a specific time of the day for prayer, but that didn't happen. I have journaled my prayers a bit more and made time to reflect on sermons from church. I also listen to podcasts in the morning on the way to work, which allows for more reflection and prayer.
Memorize at least one Scripture | Exactly the same as last month. Having the Word on our heart as Christians is one of the most important things for growing in our walks. I have a bad habit of knowing Scripture, but not knowing where it is in the Bible. Or I can remember a reference, but not what it actually says. This year, I want to make it a priority to memorize the Word.
Make time for prayer | I want to build on what I started last month in keeping with journaling my prayers and reflecting on sermons. This month I want to actually set aside a time daily for prayer. I like my sleep, so mornings isn't the best time for what I have in mind. I try and stick with a regular bedtime, but I do have my afternoons free. This is usually when I'm really focused and ready to get things done. So, when I get home from work in the afternoons and before I start my evening may be the time for my dedicated prayer and quiet time.
Focus on health and nutrition | I stepped on the scale a couple of weeks ago and surprisingly saw that I had met my goal weight. Talk about the unexpected! Spring is a time for renewal and new life, so what better time than now to re-focus on my health goals. I have a new weight goal and want to focus on nutrition (and exercise). Nutrition is more fun for me, because I like to cook. Exercise, not so much. Real talk, y'all.
Complete the puzzle scattered about on my kitchen table | Just a fun one. I mean, really. That puzzle doesn't need to be there much longer. I really need to work on getting that finished.
Make Blessing Bags | I live in the city, so no doubt that I see the homeless on a daily basis. I've even begun recognizing faces. The man from the library. The one across from the fountain. The group near the bench. I've done ministry with the homeless before, but now I want to have something handy with my always. I want to make blessing bags - ziplocs filled with goodies and helpful items - to keep in my car for when I'm around town and come across someone in need. I'll keep a couple in my glove box and the rest in the trunk for easy access.
March is more than halfway over, but these are goals of mine
for the rest of the month that I would love to start on.
What are your March goals?
