Here is where it begins. It's not the start of just a day, a week, not even a month. It's the start of a YEAR!
Everyday you wake up begins a NEW cycle of Grace, Creativity, and Sunshine. But it's at the turn of a New
Year that we begin a cycle of New Goals, New Dreams, and New Adventures. Many of you have already set
resolutions, and many of you have already broken some. My challenge is to do away with your resolutions,
and list your Goals, list your Dreams, and list the Adventures you want to take this year.
I challenge you to wake up everyday with those goals on your mind. Wake up reaching for those Dreams
embedded in your soul. Wake up with your bags packed to set sail on those Adventures you long to take.
It's Up To You if you want to achieve all your heart desires. I'll say it again. It's Up To You!
I am no different from you when it comes to striving in a New Year. I personally set goals for myself and
set goals for our ministry. I'll give you some examples down below and I hope it challenges you to strive
beyond yourself, to find a cause and give to it. Find a soul and feed it, find a need and fill it.
It's Up To You!
