What Are Your Goals For 2024?
Another year has just started, and there are already things I wish I would have done differently. Can you relate? Every New Year’s 12 new months are lying in front of me like a blank notebook and I want to fill in the pages in my most beautiful handwriting. But here I am, already struggling, worrying, scribbling.
The truth is, even though it’s a new calendar date, it’s still the same me. I might have new goals and dreams, but it’s the same person. With the same challenges. Same flaws. But God hasn’t changed over midnight either. That’s a good thing. He doesn’t need to change because he’s already perfect. And he wants to use this year to share His perfection with us, little humans, by making us more like himself. That’s His goal for 2024 – and every year to come.
So instead of setting my own goals, I’d like to ask Him how to achieve His goals for me. What do I need to let go of? What do I need to start doing, or do more often? Let’s make 2024 a year where we pursue His righteousness over worldly success. For His glory.
