Measurable goals

Having measurable goals is good because life is short.
Striving to reach your goals is good.

Jesus knew why He was on earth and everything He did and said moved Him toward that goal
(to seek and save the lost). He always had time for people,
but time with His Father was of utmost importance to Him.
He needed to get direction from His Father.


We can set big goals (lifetime)
or little ones (clean the deep freeze).
We can set spiritual goals, self-improvement goals,
career, educational,fun, weight-loss, housekeeping,
decorating or cleaning goals.
I confess that I am a results-oriented person.

I set measurable goals for myself and I work hard
(with the Holy Spirit’s direction and power) to reach those goals.

Not long ago, I was going through some papers and found ministry goals
I had set for myself eight years ago.

I was amazed to see how God had honored the goals and
the faith of the team working with me – far beyond my biggest dreams.
God honors and is pleased with faith.
My husband has often said,
“If you don’t have a target or goal, any road will get you there.”

Conversely, if you set measurable goals, trusting God to provide your needs,
you can count on God’s faithfulness to reach them.
One of my deep desires is when I stand before God, He will say,
“Well done, my faithful servant.”

In my life and ministry, I have worked with and observed many people.
Sometimes I am saddened to see that many never use or
develop the talents God has given them.

” Are you adequately investing the talents
God has given you ? “
Do you pray and ask God to help you set measurable goals
for the tasks He has called you to?
Do you set priorities?
If not, let me encourage you to begin the habit of doing so.
