Choose Your Course

Once you have answers, you can ask yourself the following questions. Am I committed to using love, honesty, and reliability to win people’s hearts, or am I using intimidation, manipulation, and control? Is my life’s trajectory geared toward upholding a good and Godly character with integrity, or is it to be successful and great at all costs? You also need to consider that you can have the noblest intentions for setting goals for your life, but if your trajectory does not include God’s input and guidance, you may find that your life’s course is already off by a few degrees.  


Matthew 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  


I understand that many of us occasionally find ourselves in a rut. My life has also had its fair share of problems and hardships. It might be challenging to consider the future course when our current circumstances may be sorrow, anxiety, depression, interpersonal issues, rage, grief, despair, etc. But by learning to concentrate on how we want our lives to be and most importantly, how God wants our lives to be, we can learn to find the right trajectory.

You have a simple task to complete today: Pray and write a letter to your future self about the goals you’d like to reach and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you where you need to go.

Also, I recommend analyzing the worth of your goals in light of God’s Word in Philippians 4:8.

Are they noble and pure? Will they exalt God? Understanding how you want to set your trajectory is more significant than what you want to accomplish. Clarify your reasoning and motives before making goals for your life because you won’t be able to reach any goals without changing how you think and act first.
