As this year quickly comes to a close, I already have turned my thoughts toward 2008. I have begun praying about how I can be a better steward of my time, and better witness for the Lord. I realize that there are many activities that I can involve myself in doing. But I have been feeling that God is calling me to do some fine tuning with my ministry next year.
I first had to seek out what area of ministry that God desires for me to participate. I read somewhere this week I think, that our time is often not spent working on the things that are our ministry. Our time can easily be wasted. I feel the need to be more specific with the time that I do have. As I prayed about where God wants me to serve, three main areas stood out in my mind.
1. My family.
2. Encouraging women to have a deeper relationship with Jesus.
3. My writing.
I pray that I will be more intentional when it comes to these three areas. I find that I will need to say no to some activities that are good, so I can focus on what is best. I pray that in all I do, I will exemplify God.
What about you? What areas do you feel God is calling you to do in 2008?
