139. What? A Quarter Of The Year Is Behind Us!

by | Apr 2, 2024 | Podcast

How can it be April 2? I mean, didn’t we just begin 2024? Yet, here we are, with a quarter of the year behind us already. It doesn’t appear that life will slow down anytime soon, yet I don’t want the remaining three quarters of the year to speed by this quickly. I’m assuming you’re feeling the same!

Recently I took some time to reflect on my life.

I asked God to realign my life according to His plans and purposes, and to refocus my attention accordingly. In this episode I’m sharing what I did in that process, because it was extremely helpful for me. Maybe it will be helpful for you, too.

These are three questions I asked myself when I paused to reflect on my life. I invite you to take some time to answer them, too.

  1. Am I making the most of this life–the abundant life Jesus came to give me?
  2. Am I honoring God with my life?
  3. Is my life bearing fruit?

These questions pointed me in the direction of what truly matters in my life.

It’s not the stuff or the trivial things I sometimes focus on that matters. It’s not how I believe I’m living my life or what the world thinks. I desire to honor God with my life and to bear fruit in this life for Him. Am I really doing that?

You’ll learn about the process of reflecting, realigning, and refocusing according to God’s will for our lives.

Even though a quarter of the year is behind us, reflecting, realigning, and refocusing can help us stay on track.

I pray this process that I recently walked through of reflecting, realigning, and refocusing helps bring you back to what’s important in your life, like it did for me. May we each stay in the center of God’s will. Pausing every now and then like this to examine our lives and where God may be leading us will help us keep on track.

I’m cheering you on today, friend. Thanks for being here. God bless you!
