Hello Readers & Followers,
How are you doing? How really are you doing? Thank God for preserving our lives to see another week and thanks be to God for His numerous blessings over us. We are now in the second quarter of the Year 2021.
The Word of God in 2 Corinthians 13:5 says that you should examine yourselves whether you are in the faith. This Scripture is encouraging us to look closely at ourselves to see if we are still in the faith. How are you looking closely at yourself? How frequently do you examine yourself? This article will give you an opportunity to review your first 3 months of the Year 2021.
1) What did you do well that pleased God? - Write them down and give thanks to God for them. I would like to encourage you to keep doing the things that you believe were pleasing to the Lord.
2) What are the things that you need to do better? - Write down at least 1 way that you could do them better.
3) What are the things that you need to stop doing? - Ask yourself, why haven't I stopped doing them? Do I need someone to be accountable to? Do I need to be intentional and make that sacrifice to stop doing something? Have I prayed to God about it? God is always ready to provide a way of escape.
A Final Review of the 1st Quarter of the Year 2021
A) The Word of God - How have you studied your Bible independently in the last 3 months? Have you hidden the Word of God in your heart? The Bible says in Psalm 119:11 that "I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you." The Word of God is always available to guide your path.
What can you do in the next 3 months to improve how you read your Bible? If you need suggestions, please feel free to ask me, I'd be happy to help.
B) Prayer - How have you prayed in the last 3 months? Have you talked to God more? Every day? Anywhere? Have you prayed alone? Have you prayed for others? Have you prayed with others? Have you heard from God? Have you used your prayer journal to talk to God? What can you do in the next 3 months to improve how you talk to God? If you need any suggestion, please feel free to ask, I'd be happy to help.
C) Goals/Dreams - Have you started implementing some of your goals? What goals did you achieve in the 1st quarter of the Year 2021? In the next three months, are you able to write down 1 action plan that you can start implementing to achieve your current goal?
For the next 3 Quarters of the Year, I would like to encourage you to:
- Put God first
- Turn to God first for direction.
