I woke up early today… and that alone was something to celebrate. I’ve had one of those weeks where I would not want Jesus to pop-in unexpectedly and “rapture” the church. He would find me distracted and doing nothing. I haven’t felt like myself… from waking up late, to loosing track of my responsibilities, eating without restraint, and neglecting time with the Lord, I am all out of whack. Ya’ll pray for me!
I feel like we all have those moments where there’s a disconnect and something seems off. It seems even harder to press into God’s presence and you begin to feel lost. I think people think my relationship with God is perfect… but it’s a constant battle and fight to get to that place.
I know that this is an attack from the enemy, since 2017 is right around the corner. He doesn’t want me to be ready… he doesn’t want me to be focused or prayerful in bringing in the New Year. He doesn’t want me to fast. He wants me to be distracted, worried about minuscule things, and before you know it, 2017 will creep in on me like a flood!
There are exactly 3 days left in this year. I know that “three” is one of God’s favorite numbers for completion so I am going to take it optimistically and be intentional about finishing off these last three days with grace, purpose, and prayer. I think I will blog each day for these three days to let you all know what I’m doing to refocus as we step into the New Year!
My Goals for The Next 3 Days:
- Fervent and intentional prayer
- Making a list of what I’m leaving behind in 2016
- Making a list of what I’m taking with me
- Re-evaluating my relationships
- Establishing some goals
- Fasting in some way, at least for one day
What are your goals for the next 3 days?
