Hmmm, has anyone else noticed that the gym isn’t quit as full as it was 2 months ago? People’s social media status posts are much less motivational and overall I don’t hear anyone talking about resolutions. Everyone was so excited in January to make life long changes but how many of us maintain the consistency needed to see these things through. I started today by examining my own personal new year’s resolution which is to live life fully and with no regrets.
It sounds good but have I really been living a no regrets life I questioned. The answer is for the past couple of weeks I must honestly say that I have not been living life fully. When faced with various financial and personal challenges I fell off. I allowed my problems to become bigger than my goal, bigger than my vision and purpose. Here in lies the problem for many people. We get so wrapped up in the day to day issues of life we lose sight of the bigger picture.
Psalms 121: 1 states “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from?” Instead of looking down at the problem, look up today. Look to the almighty Creator who is our source and our help. Today as I refocus myself I encourage you to do the same. Go grab that journal and revisit the goals you set for this year. Pray and spend time with God, seek Him to help you stay focused. Don’t allow temporary problems to become permanent obstacles to your life long goals.
