 ~A NEW YEAR ~    A NEW SLATE ~

WRITE HIS ANSWER
By
           Marlene Bagnull                    

God gave me goals for 2012 ~ 2103 and I was amazed even astounded by how easily I moved through the course of the year and keeping it right each project ~ each goal on track ~ UNTIL ~ I saw a "SPLENDID OPPORTUNITY ~ or so I thought ~ and went down a wider trail only to find it didn't have the bonus at the end I'd hoped to find. Therefore~ I was thrown off my goal and although part of it will still hold firm, a single item that would have had HUGE potential won't  to fruition until possibly late THIS year ~ if at all.

I do have some great things to look forward to, thanks to the Lord's leading me a year ago at this time and that will be announced at a later date.

FOR NOW ~ Please set your goals, your plans, your resolutions according to HIS plans for you. After all ~

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways, declares the LORD, For as the heavens are higher than  the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.
So will mY word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it." 

ISAIAH 55:8, 9 & 11

Do not hesitate to set your Goals ~ Plans ~ Resolutions on those things which are eternal and guided by the Most Capable Hand of Love and Mercy.

Blessings all on this new year!

My goal for 2013 is to enter my novel in Genesis contest and finish revising it. Then I'm planning on rewriting my first attempt at a novel. God willing, I should have 2 finished by the end of 2013 and doing research on Book III. cortricj@gmail.com

Will place your name in the drawing!
Thanks for stopping by today, Connie.

I'm still in the midst of goal setting for 2013. The word God gave me for this year is thankful, so I'm trying to focus things around that word.

Writing goals - to find a publisher home for my first novel (in a series) and write the second, perhaps third.

Blessings,
Jodie
