I’m goal oriented by nature. It’s the way that God made me and I’m okay with that. I need to have a feeling of accomplishment at the end of a day, a week, a year, and so on. Goals are important because without goals we just don’t get much done. But, I’m slowly learning that often times the journey is at least as important as the goal.
I have a desire to raise children that love God, that’s the goal. I have a desire for my children to love others, to help others, to have a servant’s heart, to work hard, to keep priorities in order, to reflect Jesus in everything that they do, to die to themselves daily. That goal will not be seen in a day, a week, a year or so on. The goal is important, but the way we get there is just as important. The journey. We have to slow down and make the journey count, I have to slow down and make the journey count.
Because it’s about the right now as much as it’s about the ten years from now.
