Today I’m back at (in)courage, and this time, I’m sharing my 2012 goals! You’re welcome to call them new year’s resolutions, if that’s your thing.
On Monday I poked fun at my mid-90s self, where I went nuts with eight resolutions in one year, all doomed to failure because they expected so much. This year, I’m aiming for four, and they’re quite different than those from 15 years ago. From the post:
“I believe God wants us to enjoy Him fully in the life He’s given us, which means that by addressing the practical, we’re freer to delight in His gifts. We can better hike wooded trails when we’re in reasonably good health—our bodies allow us to experience His creation, in other words.
But practical goals should never be the measuring stick that determines our worth. Not exercising three times per week does not make me a horrible person—it makes me a human being. It’s a good goal because it addresses the stewardship of my body, but God adores me regardless of my earthly accomplishments.”
What are your 2012 goals? Head over to the post and share in the comments!
