2011 Goals

I said I'd have them for you, so here they are.

My goals for myself, after much prayer and thought, for 2011 are:

  • In my relationship with the Lord, my goal is to read through the bible in a year, again.  I did that last year and it was so beneficial!  I learned so much!  I also am going to post every Wednesday on the reading on Tammy's blog.  See this post to learn more about what reading plan we are doing and her blog.  
  • In my relationship with my husband, my goal is to pray for him everyday, with intention.  To aid in this, I am going to use The Power of a Praying Wife.  It has short readings and a written prayer to help you pray for your husband.  I will use this, at least at first and then if I feel I've created a good base, I'll move on.  I figure if I pray for my husband I'll become the wife he needs and the Lord will work through him, rather than me nag him.
  • In my relationship with my kids, my goal is to think before I speak, speak softly and model the behavior I want to see in them.  This is a doozy for me.  I've tried to change this, but it's hard!  I've already gotten in a pattern of negative behavior and I want that to change.  
  • In my relationship with others, my goal is to pray, immediately, as someone comes to mind, or when someone asks.  One of my spiritual gifts is intercession and I do believe the Lord brings people to mind to pray for them.  I fail miserably at this.  I want to be a praying person, every moment of every day.  
  • In my relationship with myself, my goal is to speak positively to myself.  (that is so self help I can't stand it)  But I am so negative and down on myself.  The Lord doesn't talk to me like that!  And so, with that in mind, I am making a goal of being able to run a 10 min mile in my training by years end.  Because, like a dear friend said to me, I don't know what I am capable of.  
I've got my work cut out for me, but I've also got a year to do it.  Lets see how it goes!

Great goals Kathryn!

Bettering my prayer life is a huge goal for me in 2011.
