A New Day

I have some audacious goals for the month of November!
They are BIG and scary. :)

I'm not quite ready to share them with you yet, but I realized that the bottom line of anything I want to accomplish is really all about God. He controls my days; He directs my steps and to act differently (accomplish BIG goals) means that I will need to fully rely on Him!

Does this mean that any audacious goal is really just partnering with the Divine and offering my complete surrender? I know I can't establish new patterns of behavior without the Holy Spirit.

I was reading in Psalm 62 and found these verses encouraging.
(v 5-8)

My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
He only is my rock and my salvation;
He is my defense;
I shall not be moved.
In God is my salvation and my glory;
The rock of my strength
And my refuge, is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people;
Pour out your heart before Him;
God is a refuge for us.

My expectation is from Him...I LOVE that!

Hoping you meet your goals for November. I love that Psalm Aren't the Psalms amazing in the way they speak to the soul with just the right words?

You are so wise to know that changes don't come by human effort, but by the work of the Holy Spirit as we try to obey God.
