God-Shaped Goals

Occasionally – well, this is only my second time doing so, come to think of it – I decide to share a post from my first blog, called Daily Thankful. Today, I’ve selected a post called “God-Shaped Goals,” and if you feel so led, you can read it in full here.

In some respects, I feel that I have changed quite a bit since originally authoring this post, and in other ways, much has remained the same. Having just recently re-read the post, I feel challenged by it all over again, as I am still very much a “work in progress.” Come to think of it, aren’t we all…?

Regardless, I offer the post here for your perusal, and trust that the Lord will use it to encourage someone today (even if that “someone” is me!). :).

  1. Really good stuff. And the thing is, while we’re working on the OBT, channeling our time and energy into it, we’re still juggling daily life moment-by-moment! As always, the conclusion of the matter is to give it to God because, as you say, He’s the One Who can do anything with our circumstances – beyond anything we can ask or imagine!

    1. Very true – I hadn’t thought of it that way before, but that is a good point. We need God to get us through each day, AND to accomplish the mighty work that He desires to bring forth through us. Well said, my friend! 💛

  2. I struggle with this as well. I live a moderately comfortable life and feel that my goals aren’t big enough sometimes. I also really appreciate you calling out that you aren’t a “name it and claim it” advocate because I think that theology is completely unbiblical. Something else that I’m working through is actually asking God what He wants my goals to be for the coming year instead of just saying “This is what I’m going to do for God whether or not that’s what he wants!” which is what I wrote about recently. https://calebbale.com/2018/12/17/quit-making-your-goals-into-gods-goals/

    1. Hi Caleb! Thank you for stopping by. I read your post, and it really resonated deeply with something and I’ve been dealing with myself. I think your post is right on the money, and I may share with a friend of mine, too.

      Thank you for letting God use you! ✝️
