When God made the earth, He had a plan. When He created you, He had a plan for your life. To discover your plan, simply take some time to write down the things about which you have a passion. What do you dream of doing or accomplishing? What do you wish for financially? What do you want to see in your relationships?
A recent national survey found that only 3% of people surveyed were highly successful financially. Of this same 3% they were also people who had written goals. 60% of the people surveyed were just getting by financially in life and also reported to giving some thought to the future but had no written plan to do so. It’s an interesting statistic that people who write down their goals are more successful than those who don’t.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 (ESV)
