January 2nd, 2011
After I read my husband’s latest blog post I decided to invite him to be a guest blogger for me. Well actually I just decided to cut and paste his thoughts. He said it was O.K.
It’s a new year, and I think we need to be asking the questions Mike poses.
Here is Mike’s blogpost: I think it was Socrates who said that “an unexamined life is not worth living.” He’s right. For those who love to be reflective at the end of the year here are some questions that may be helpful.
Do you like the person you’re becoming?
What or who do you keep stumbling over?
Are the people who need you the most only getting the emotional scraps?
How is your soul?
Where do you need to be encouraged most right now?
What, if anything, is holding you back from living more fully for God?
What is bringing you joy?
In what ways are your deep passions meeting the deep needs in our world?
What is the root of any sadness in your life?
Is there unresolved sin in your life?
Where is your source of accountability?
What’s your next step?
Who are you trusting with your secrets?
What needs to change?
Anita back with you now…..maybe you have questions of your own to add to the list. Feel free to post them via a comment. Now I need a week to sit around and contemplate….but, since that is highly unlikely to happen, I need to make space each day to reflect and look forward in 2011. Happy New Year Everyone!
