Seek First Project: Abstract Goals (Day 119)

For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11

The first step in our goal-setting is done. We’ve prayed and committed any plans to the Lord. We’ve prepared our minds for the second step.

Now we are going to set some abstract goals. Don’t worry about being detailed. We will look at this in further detail tomorrow. For today, just make 5 goals that you want to accomplish in the next 3 months. We’re not in a race here. We’re taking our time and doing this right.

Goal #1 should be something that you wish to accomplish spiritually.
Goal #2 should be something you want to achieve physically.
Goal #3 is something to work on having to do with relationships.
Goal #4 is something you wish to surrender completely.
Goal #5 will be something you will work on NOT doing.

Here’s my list, as an example:
#1 Getting back to sending prayers to people
#2 Not feeling so tired all the time
#3 Making more of an effort in my marriage
#4 Surrender my fears of illness and trauma
#5 I don’t want to be so distracted

Remember to keep these abstract. More detail will come tomorrow. For now, it’s enough to have a general idea where you want to be headed.

Write this list in your journal. Talk to God about it. What will be the most challenging? The most relieving? Ask Him to help you with each item. 

And He will. Oh, He will.


Lord God, this project is important to us and we can see how You are working in us through each step we take towards You! Thank You for being by our side. We can do all things through Christ, who strengthens us. Amen…
