My Next Year With Jesus (Joyful Reflections On My Walk With The Lord)

The one question I keep coming back to is...

"Am I involved with life the way God wants me to beinvolved?"

That's it.
Nothin' fancy.

Now two related questions for you:

1. If that question doesn't ring true with you, how wouldyou modify it to be *most* meaningful to you?

2. If you do connect with that question, what ideas orthoughts come to mind?

Obviously, the most important concept we have to deal withthis year -- in one form or another -- is how we willrespond to the Lord's working in our lives.

As I write these words and reflect on what I just mentioned,maybe a few additional related questions would be...

"Am I following Jesus the way He would have me to follow Himat this stage in my life?"

"As I think about living for Jesus this next year, whatwould give Him great joy?"

"What would excite me the most about following Jesusthis next year?"

"What untapped potential could I bring to world this yearand be a positive influence for Christ in doing so?"

"What one discipline could I initiate or improve upon thatwould help me be a better person, a stronger influence forgood, or please Jesus most in my world?"

"Is there anything I need to stop or finally put an end to?"

"If I were to influence three people for Jesus this year insmall, consistent, easily achievable ways, who would Iinfluence?"

"How could I connect with God more in my devotions?"

"What talents do I have that would bring Jesus *and me*great joy in developing them together this year?"

"If Jesus were to step into my world and assume the dailyroutines of my life, what would my life 'look and feel like'--inside and out?"

These questions -- and the others you create -- should beenough to get us started thinking about next year!

May the Lord give you an increased sense of His presence, agreater understanding of His love, and more than an extradose of His power this coming year and always.

Because of God's grace,

(John 15:16)
