Can you identify with any of these?

  • You know there is something more but you don’t know where to start.
  • You feel stuck in your current situation.
  • You’ve ignored or given up on some of your passions and dreams.
  • You don’t feel released to move on but you want to prepare yourself for
    what’s next.
  • You have lost hope.

These are common symptoms that show you need a breakthrough in your life.

As we begin looking forward to 2019, there are some simple yet important
steps you can take now to help you dream and plan with God.

1. Reflect

It’s difficult to move forward when we haven’t learned from our past
experiences. Before setting new goals for 2019, be sure to take some time
to pause and

reflect on your past year


2. Renew

Now is the time to decide what sort of commitments you want to continue on
into the new year. Decide how you will renew your commitments to your
family and relationships. Think about how you can be a better spouse,
parent, mentor, sister, brother, friend, employee or employer, etc.

It is doing small things consistently every day that can often bring about
the biggest results!

3. Rest

Remember to take time to rest from your labor. Maybe not all of your goals
in the previous year came about, but God loves you all the same and will
not forget you in this coming new year!

Get ready for the Lord to help bring real change to you in the New Year.
