2012 is here with its promises and it’s pressures. Which will you focus on?
Are you going to let the daily grind consume you? Allow distractions and demands to keep you from doing what you really want to do in life? Is your focus on making a buck or making a difference? As Tom Brokaw puts it “It’s easy to make a buck. It’s a lot harder to make a difference.”
My challenge to you and to myself is to make this year count! Don’t let another year roll by without doing something that really matters to you, something that will make a difference in your life and perhaps the lives of others.
What is your dream, your vision, your heart’s desire? Whatever it is, go after it. Pursue it. You have the strength, the wisdom, and the courage to go out there and conquer the world! Proverbs 29:18 says “My people perish for lack of vision” and you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Phil 4:13).
So what are you waiting for? First, pray about it. Ask the Lord to give you revelation. He will reveal His will to you. He will help you make a plan, put action steps to it, and then it’s up to you to step out in faith and get to work. He’s behind you all the way and so am I!
I’m excited to see what God is going to do in and through His people this year, so send me a note and let me know what great thing God is up to in your life. Happy 2012 and let’s all MAKE IT COUNT!
