1. Write/Journal more. This isn't in relation to my blog, but rather to my personal writing. By hand. I'm horrible at it. I want to get better. In fact, my original goal was to journal each day of 2011. Right now, I'm aiming for 4-5 times a week, which is a vast improvement over last year and the year before that. In fact, the current journal I'm using, which is less than half way used, I started in March of 2009. You do the math. So in faith, I bought 4 new journals.
2. Blog on a regular basis. I can't blog everyday. It doesn't work with my schedule. But I can blog more than I do now. Which, if you think about it, shouldn't be that hard since it's been about a month and a half since I blogged last. Let's say 2-3 times a week minimum. And if you don't see me blogging on here, you are free to send me comments to remind me that I made this goal. Maybe some accountability will help.
3. Dive deep into God's word. Yep. I don't want to do this just half way. And my track record this year has already been, well, non-existent for the most part. There's really two parts to this goal: my daily Bible reading/prayer/Jesus time and studying the Bible (which would happen a few hours at a time 1-2 times a week). I just bought this book and I'm excited about what it says:
But there are tools you need to study the Bible, so I also bought all of these books:
And you really can't see them all that well in the picture, but there's a lot. And I'm excited. And you should be excited for me. Just saying.
So, it's a new year. But even better, it's a new month, a new week, a new day, a new hour, a new minute, a new second, for me to start my goals. I love that God gives us so many chances for new beginnings.
