3 steps to make the next 51 weeks matter  


Countdown-51

You have 51 weeks left in front of you. How will you use those 51 weeks?

We’re one week into the New Year.  Maybe you’ve made resolutions.  Maybe you’ve already broken them!  It doesn’t matter.  What matters is what you do the rest of the year.  Fifty-one more weeks.  Here are three steps you can take now to make the most of the 51.

  1. Choose one word you want to focus on in the coming year. Words like generosity, gratitude, ambition, rest, friendships, reflection, creativity, forgiveness, learning, etc.
  2. Choose one verse from Scripture you can focus on in the coming year. Make it a verse that captures part of God’s truth, wisdom and power.  g. some of the verses we’ve worked on for the Celebration Challenge.
  3. Choose to live your life under new management this year…specifically, the management of Jesus himself. For help in doing this, join in our new weekend series, “Under New Management.”  (If you missed last week, catch the podcast here and check out the life-transforming Daniel Plan this Saturday at Noon.)
  4. Tell someone about your decisions. I know, that’s technically a fourth step.  But it’s really just completing the first three.  Hey, I majored in Bible, not math. 🙂

So forget last week.  Focus on the upcoming week.  One word.  One verse.  New Management.  Then watch what God can do through you!

-Pastor Mark

P.S. My word for 2015 is “courage.”  And my verse for 2015 is 1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV) – Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
