Focus leads to effectiveness. Decisions fuel our determination. Sometimes we simply need to clarify our commitment before we get confused by all the chaos any given day can bring. So today try answer these simple questions. What do you want to build? Your marriage, friendship, business, ministry? If so then make sure you do something that builds, be specific and use words that build, actions that build, build that person, marriage, area up today. Who can you help? A colleague, friend, neighbour, stranger? Take the opportunity to be someone’s answer to prayer, look for a moment when your help can become a gift to someone today, seek an opportunity to help another, it will make your day sweeter. Where can you grow? What can you read, listen to, or ask that will grow your life today, then do it, any growth you can gain is time well spent. And when will you change? What one thing could you do today to help change in that area where you are stuck? Maybe you need to apologize, forgive, sow, pray. The point is, we can all make progress everyday in someway, we just need to focus our efforts and be deliberate about our decisions. Why not try to answer these questions throughout your day, maybe it will make you more aware of what you are spending your time on and help adjust something on your priority list.
Progress is not a mystery or magic, it’s a reward of discipline. Tonight when you close out your day. Look back and answer these questions. You may not feel you took giant leaps but you will be more aware and able to give thanks for the ground you gained.. You can do this!
All the best,
