Something I have loved doing since I was a teenager is shooting at targets, and not just with a gun. I love to shoot for accuracy, with pellet guns, bows, rifles, handguns anything. However, I have never liked to hunt. I remember going gopher shooting and having bad dreams for weeks because killing just isn't in me. However to aim at a target and strive to hit is has always been thrilling. I remember walking into the woods with a pellet gun as a young teenager and shooting aimlessly at no target. I quickly became bored and distracted. I would start to look for things to hit, challenging myself. I walked around looking for old cans or bottles to put on a stump to shoot at. It was so much better to aim at something than to have no target to hit. You can't expect to hit a target if you don't have one. Philippians 4:14 says, "I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." KJV
I have been talking with many people of late that seem to need to push toward some goals but have never had any kind of instruction as to how to reach their goals. This week we will be focussing on how to work toward goals. We all need goals, and we all need a plan to achieve them.
Read: Philippians 4
Pray: that God will guide you to have goals in your life and the strength you need to attain them.
Journal: Take one page in your journal and write down all the goals you would like to accomplish in your life. Any goals and dreams are fine. Make sure to include goals from all areas of life, recreational goals, family goals, financial goals, work related goals, spiritual goals, and social goals. Goals can be grand, like climb Everest, or make $100,000,000. Or they can be simple, like to read more or spend an hour a day with your kids.
How often do we wonder, "Where am I going? or What is my purpose?" In our day to day life, in our inner walk, many of us are looking for a purpose. You may be here because you want answers. You may be here because you truly want an Epic Walk. For whatever your reason, I am glad you are here. Read on. Enjoy our daily homework and hopefully, you can find more purpose, and begin an Epic Walk.
