I've spent the Christmas season and New Year taking a break from blogging but I've still been reading my favorite posts and popping in on Facebook occasionally. I always enjoy reading the posts and goals everyone sets for the New Year. I love the ideas and it spurs me on to my own challenges.
I've had time over the past couple weeks to ponder my routines and daily activities to determine what is working and where I need to make changes. Not just in my home routines but in my relationships with others and my time with the Lord. I do set various goals in my home keeping but my priority is always where I am spiritually and where I hope to be by the end of next year.
Every year I review my spiritual priorities. My reminder is that my list comes from the basis of God's Word and not the world's way of setting priorities.
The seven categories I work from are:
- Grow in godliness
- Love my family
- Serve in the church
- Fellowship with Christians
- Evangelize non-Christians
- Attend to my work
- Care for physical health
