Finish Well

  • Deborah 

Today I’d like to take a look at what it takes to finish the year well. I hope you have done the work and made notes as we have looked back over the first six months of 2022. Let’s look forward and make plans for the next six months in order to finish the year soaring with God in who He created you to be, doing what He created you to do. 

Today I want you to take a look at your big vision—or as I call it in Created For So Much More—your cloud formation. I am not talking about the list of goals that you may have written at the beginning of the year. 

The “world” looks at lists of goals and says, “Which ones did you accomplish? Which ones did you fall short on?” God operates differently than the world. 

God loves to surprise His children. He will often have you pivot your plans and work when you least expect it. That is why I want you to go back to your vision board/cloud formation. Pull back a little and gain new perspective on the dream and vision to see where you are working and where God is telling you to work next.

The goal today is to sit with the Lord in order to know the next right step to take. 

Pause your work, sit with Holy Spirit and consider: 

  • What steps can you take to co-labor with what the Lord is doing right now?
  • Have you made choices that don’t align with your cloud formation/vision? How can you come back into alignment with God’s vision for you?
  • What skills do you need to hone in order to be prepared for your big dream?
  • What nitty gritty work have you put off that needs completing? 

Consider the answers to these questions as well as the questions from the last several posts. 

  • Make a list of ten things that you know need to be addressed.
  • Prioritize your list ranking them in order of importance and urgency with number one being the highest priority and ten the least.
  • Set deadlines for your top three. 
  • Add additional steps if needed to accomplish your top three by your deadline. 

I encourage you to take small steps and to make adjustments that are sustainable. Wholesale changes are generally not sustainable. Remember we are working to finish well. Baby steps taken in the right direction get the job done. 

Dream big and work small knowing that small hinges swing big doors. 

Comment below and tell me what your first step will be.
