All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do…

Successful goal selection stems from our inner perceptions and the correspondence of our actions. If what we want and how we go about accomplishing our goals does not correspond, then we are likely to experience a degree of self-sabotage.

In order for success to be achieved, one’s intentions and actions must be in alignment when selecting and committing to a goal. It is important to take time to consider if the results you desire will actually be processed effectively by your goal choice.

Ask Yourself These 4 Questions When Contemplating A Goal:

Do I truly Want what I think I want?

Do I “Believe” God wants “This” for my Life?

Do I earnestly Believe that I can achieve my goal?

Do I deeply feel that I Deserve to have what I want?

It is certainly better to be clear about your answers to the above questions than to forge ahead and then have nagging doubts. Otherwise, you may become a candidate for self-sabotage. So, how do you explore your true intentions so that ultimately your actions will be in successful alignment?

The answer is to take a close look at your real intentions, your level of belief, and your feelings about deserving the outcome. Let’s take a look at each of these points.

Explore Your Real Intentions…. Why are you acting on this particular goal? Is it actually your goal or the idea of another person? Is the goal 100% what you want? Taking the time to consider this fundamental step is very important and can mean the difference between success and disappointment…

What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals…

Explore Your Level Of Belief…. In addition to wanting the goal, do you truly believe the goal is achievable? Do you believe down deep this is important enough to you to go after it? Have you thought about the tools and resources you will need for positive action? Can you commit yourself to what is necessary to accomplish the results you want? Can you honestly say that the goal aligns with God’s Word? Will the goal be pleasing to Christ?

The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment. Earl Nightingale

Explore Your Feelings About Deserving The Outcome…. While this may seem strange, if you do not completely feel that you are worthy of a successful outcome, all the time and energy invested simply will not bring the goal to fruition. You have to “Believe” that God wants you to have “This” and will Help you accomplish it! You deserve God’s Best! He is a Good-Father and wants to Bless you!

If you want the goal and believe in it, but have any doubt whether you are worthy of its success, figure out why you feel this way…………. Do you feel un-worthy? You are, but Jesus has you covered, move out in Faith. Have you sinned? O.K. welcome to the human race.. Now confess it “Repent” and move out into 2012 forgiven….. Most likely, when honestly addressed, you can resolve any issue that holds you back and move forward…

Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality…

It is absolutely wonderful when your intentions and actions are in alignment and you know that you want a goal, believe in it, and deserve it. But, unless you consciously deal with these basic elements, then it is possible to sabotage your well-intended efforts.

Remember: A well-structured goal is essential to establish a clear path to a desired outcome, but carefully selecting the right goal is perhaps even more critical. That also means that the intent of the goal and the actions to implement it must match. Pursuing a poorly conceived goal is paramount to self-sabotage. Learning to make a successful goal selection is fundamental to goal-setting…

Christmas Child... Christmas Son...

For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given;
and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace… Isaiah 9:6

The underlined sentence is a double one, but trust
me; it has in it no duplication. The careful reader will soon discover a “great” distinction. And it is not a distinction without a difference. “To us a Child is born, to us a Son is given.” As Jesus is a Child in His human Nature, He is born, generated of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary. He is as truly born, and as certainly a Child, as any other man that ever lived upon the face of the earth! He is therefore in His Humanity, a Child born. But as Jesus Christ is God’s Son, He is not born, but given, begotten of His Father from before all worlds, begotten—not made, being of the same substance with the Father… He IS “Emmanuel..” which translated means “God-With-Us”

There is so much to write about, so much to “Think” about in our little prophetic verse… His Name.. Wonderful…Counselor.. Mighty God!! Everlasting Father… “The Prince of Peace” … meditate on those for a few hours..

Back so soon……. Well, I want to take three minutes to draw Your Attention to the two simplest words in the verse, and some would argue the most important & Power-Full… “To Us” (or for you old school King James fans) “Unto Us”

Here in these two little words we begin to perceive the “real” Power of this verse.

This Mighty God; This Wonderful Counselor; This Everlasting Father; This Prince of Peace… “Is Ours”

The question must be asked this Christmas season is this Babe of Bethlehem “Born Unto YOU?” If He is then You are “Born-Again Unto Him”

For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life. John 3:16

Because of this earth born Child, this heaven sent Son we have escaped the penalty of our past, the eternal prison of sin has been shattered and we are “Free” …

Free to Love God..

Free to Serve God…

Free to Worship God…

Free to walk on streets of gold someday..

Heaven is Ours... Salvation has been provided!!

Praise this Child of Christmas... Worship this Son of Heaven…

Deb & I are trusting you will be able to join with us on “Sunday” …Christmas Day.

We are having a special 10:00am service, remember to bring your 1-1-2 “Birthday Gift” for Jesus
