1. What's one thing you could do this year to increase your enjoyment of God? Continue building my "What Do I Know About My God?" Scripture notebook.
2. What's the most humanly impossible thing you will ask God to do this year? Turn around an impossible situation; bring physical healing to my friend Terry, if that's His will.
3. What's the single most important thing you could do to improve the quality of your family life this year? More getaways with my hubby!
4. In which spiritual discipline do you want to make progress this year, and what will you do about it? Meditating on Scripture. I will be using the SOAP method of Bible study.
5. What is the single biggest time-waster in your life, and what will you do about it this year? Procrastination. I will be praying about it with regularity -- maybe even daily -- and seeking to implement the "do it now" principle.
6. What is the most helpful new way you could strengthen your church? I've just begun a study of prayer with my ladies' Sunday School class. If a good number (or even a few!) ladies would become serious about answering God's call to be prayer warriors, what a difference that would make in our church! And, of course, in their individual lives as well.
7. For whose salvation will you pray most fervently this year? My unsaved grandchildren and elderly relatives.
8. What's the most important way you will, by God's grace, try to make this year better than last year? Try to take better care of myself so I will have increased energy to serve God and others.
9. What one thing could you do to improve your prayer life this year? Pray each day about what I've learned from God's Word that day, and pray for God to help me apply it to my everyday life.
10. What single thing that you plan to do this year will matter most in ten years? In eternity? This is a difficult one, but I think my answer to question 6 could go here as well.
So there you have it. Ten questions, ten answers to help me finalize my 2014 goals.
