I have learned through personal experience how vitally important it is to regularly assess myself. The times I have found myself most off course in life were the times I had neglected charting a course and checking my bearings.
It is so easy to get caught up in the rolling waves of life and not even notice how far we have drifted until one day we look up and realize we are in a place we never planned on being and that the waves have gotten violently destructive. It is so much easier to take a little time each day to connect with God and a little time each week to assess our connection to Him and how we are doing on self improvement goals.
If we make a point to regularly examine ourselves we can make great strides in overcoming our weaknesses and towards becoming our highest and best selves.
One of the ways I have found to regularly evaluate myself is to set some time aside in January to determine an action word I can use to focus on during the year to help me grow closer to the Lord. This year I have chosen PRAYERFUL.
I challenge you to pick a word and I’d love to know the word you choose. Happy 2019!
