Into the first full week of 2016 and I have the same joy I had during NYE church service! The reason being is because my pastor shared a great word on how to be effective and have a prosperous year. So to start the year off right we need to re evaluate who we associate ourselves with. Be with wise individuals that will sharpen you. When working on your vision, commit to God first. Ask for wisdom and understanding. Next, define your purpose in the assignments you’ll have for the year. For example, when applying for a job, define your purpose and how it fits into your overall vision. While some may take longer to meet their vision than others, DO NOT GIVE UP! When you’re baking or waiting for your food at a restaurant , you simply don’t give up because they seem to be taking a long time , you wait until you get what you asked. It’s the same in our relationship with God. Don’t give up nor allow others to doubt your vision. I’m excited for all of us!
