He searched high. He searched low. He searched in the corners and the cracks and the crevices.
“What are you looking for?” someone asked.
He replied, “I don’t know.“
Now THAT’S crazy! Why search intently for something that you’re not sure what it is?
You want to finish strong, right? You want to be as big an influence as God wants you to be, right?
It will require personal growth in your life. But what are you looking for in your personal growth? How do you know you’re growing?
Here’s an idea:
First, take a walk around your life and view it from all angles. Your marriage (if married), your parenthood (if you have kids), your finances, your spiritual life, your physical fitness….
Second, rate from 1 – 10 how satisfied you are in each of those areas (1 = poor, 10 = excellent)
Third, pick the one you sense is the highest priority to focus on right now in your season of life.
Fourth, ask yourself, “What must I do to bring it from the number it is now to the next highest number?“
Fifth, brainstorm (perhaps with your accountability partner) ideas of concrete activities you can start today that will get you to that number
That way, you’ll know better what you’re looking for.
