I must admit that some days I spend too much time on the computer but there is a lot of gold out there…so it’s worth it.
I don’t know how I stumbled onto this site…but I am glad that I did. Elisa at Extravagant Grace is calling all of us to a life that has more intention…with a fun twist on the age old new year resolutions. You can read more about it here or click on the sidebar button.
Pick 8 different areas that you want to see, do, feel or experience in 2008. They can be physical, spiritual, emotional…you choose. Dream big because God is a God that longs to give you your heart’s desires.
My friend Cheryl shared with me that at church, the pastor spoke of the number “7” meaning completion and that the number “8” means new…so not only is this a new year but it is a year of new things…so why not try some of those new things…but be intentional about it.
Each month on the 8th…we will check in on our progress…did you hear me? Progress not failure…condemnation and all that nonsense that drags us into defeat. If you sign up on Elisa’s site, you are eligible for prizes…
These are my 8 in 2008:
Read the Bible Cover to Cover Chronologically
Celebrate (I mean really celebrate) my 20th anniversary with my husband finally before 2008 ends (it will be 22 years in July!!)
Stop eating at 8pm
Complete the Chronicles of Narnia with Carl
Tell my testimony to someone who doesn’t know the Lord
Hike through 3 waterfall areas here in Oregon and/or go snowshoeing
Be an active member of the 5am club which in my case will be the 6:15 club at least for now, read more here
Edit my favorite posts and see where God takes them…
So there you have it…a mixture of discipline…fun…health…fitness…and dreams!
Leave me a comment of your 8 in 2008 or even 1 for the year…if you are shy…send me an email…I would love to pray for you toward seeing your dreams revealed in 2008.
