Godly Goals?

Guys, gals, we need goals!

Are you a tried and true goal setter? Do you write down your goals and reflect on your progress? If your answers are yes, then you deserve a pat on the back! Go ahead, you know you want to!

But if you are like me, you have these huge, non-specific goals floating around in your head that you think about from time to time. No progress is really made because you aren’t actively involved in it.

Since beginning this blog it has become extremely evident that I need to make some goals to keep my focus and motivations in check.

That is what I wanted to tell you.

God showed me a different direction on goal setting. Yeah, He basically throat punched me with it. Ha!

As I was searching for biblical principles and verses I came across this post, and as I read deeper in the comments I found a link to this video. Man! (No affiliation with the last two links.)

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps.

Proverbs 16:9

It doesn’t matter what we plan and make goals for, the Lord’s plans are greater! When we make goals and strive to achieve them we are putting God in a box. Why would we limit unlimited potential? It is through dedicated prayer and thanksgiving that God will provide a path for each of us and we don’t know where that path will take us! But when we put all our faith, all our hope, all our trust, all of our desires on Him how can we fail?!


God is our great provider! We should not limit him to our humanly goals which have such a tiny vision compared to his! Yes, it will be hard to restrain ourselves. But this is the path less trodden.

I mentioned before that I was in need of keeping my focus and motivations in check. I was about to do so by making human-sized goals. The funny thing is that He is capable of keeping those things in check! He tells us to cast your worries on Him (1 Peter 5:7). Oh how God could prosper us if we can learn to let Him lead and give Him the praise for our accomplishments!

 Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

1 Peter 5:7

What plans or goals do you need to give up to the Lord? Leave your answer in the comments!

Welcome to Prosper in Faith!

Hey there!

Welcome to my new blog, Prosper in Faith. I am full of anticipation of what God has in store for me through this new adventure! My purpose for this blog is to share my knowledge and my faith with you. God has placed a passion in my heart for helping others in the areas of careers, motivation, and wealth. I am by no means an expert. I am, like you, trying to navigate these waters myself. My hope is that I can share what I learn with you.

Whatever you do, work heartily,

as for the Lord and not for men,

Colossians 3:23 ESV

I believe that God has laid out a plan for us, in both our careers and in building wealth. He also is the great motivator when times get tough or when we get lazy. I hope to share with you some Bible-based ideas to finding a career, or being successful in your current career. The bible also lays out instructions on what to do with our money, and I look forward to exploring those with you.

Please, come along this journey with me. The possibilities are endless!

PB & J,

Hannah
