Something Big is Coming Your Way


Good Morning all,
I hope all is well.
Wanted to share Today's Word. It reminds me of Goal setting. A part of my Job Readiness Training is to help clients learn about and help to establish Goals. I start by asking:

  • How many of you have Goals?
  • Do you know what a Goal is?
  • Do you know what a SMART (Specific, Measureable, Achievable/Attainable, Relevant/Realistic, Timely) Goal is?"

Some have goals, but the majority do not. They never took the time to think about where they would like to be and do in 6 month - 1 year, 1 - 5 years or even have a life vision. So I helped them by allowing them some quiet time to think of the things they would like to do, eventually have, places they would like to go/see, etc. Once I charted their response, then we turned the response into SMART goals with timeframes:
Life Vision: 10 years (something you want or where you want to be)
Goals: 1 - 5 years
Subgoals: 6 months - 1 year
Action Steps:  NOW - 6 months

They now see their future and have something to live for.
For many of you, once you reach your goal, you stop. All of your energy is gone because in some cases it was a struggle to reach that goal. Instead, you should look beyond, set another goal. Keep them going as long as you live!
Once my class learned about goals, they said to me "Ms. Flo, basically, if you don't have a Goal, you will die! My response, TRUE THAT! -:)
Have great day!

Something Big is Coming Your Way


“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?”
(Isaiah 43:19, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

The God we serve is not a small God. His plan for your life is not for you to reach one level, get stuck and stay there for 30 or 40 years. His plan is to increase you, open new doors before you, and take you places that you’ve never imagined. He has something big in your future! He’s already planned out big breaks, big opportunities and big ideas for you. You may have seen God’s goodness in the past, but you have not touched the surface of what God has in your future! God is about to do a new thing!

And what I sense in my spirit is the new thing is going to be far greater than you’ve ever seen before. It’s going to be bigger than you imagined. It’s going to be more rewarding than you thought possible. Now you’ve got to come into agreement and say, “Yes, God, this is for me today. I’m not going to get stuck where I am. I’m not going to go around with little dreams, little goals. I know You’re a big God, and You have something big coming my way!”


Father God, thank You for loving me and choosing me for Your good purposes. I choose to set my affection on You today knowing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your peace and strength as I wait patiently on You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen
