Is Your Goal a Struggle Yet?

Angie here: I don't know about you, but setting a goal is one thing and accomplishing it is another. Are you still on track? Or is your goal a struggle yet?

I set goals for my career, personal, spiritual, and health. None of these will come to pass without intentional, daily effort. And that means sweat! But the most important element in achieving those goals is that I cannot do any of it in my own power.

Part of my spiritual goals is to remember to give them to God. I know it's too easy to get off track and forget who the Power really is.

The last year physically has been a healing one from a car crash. I have 5 more months to expected full recovery. But now released from PT and regular doc visits, guess who is in charge of her remaining recovery (and fitness level)?

I plan for an hour a day on my treadmill. On a daily basis, I get tired and discouraged too. So I set my focus on how I will feel in 5 months. And I send up a request for help to get through that one workout since He gives me enough for today.

Then I get ready for the next thing on the list because God is with me and leading me on this journey.

Fire up your treadmill, let's take it one step at a time and we'll get it done even when it seems too hard.

Here's my prayer:
Lord, are you there? I think I bit off too big a bite. Can you help me?


  1. I always give myself tons of things that I would like to do. At the moment for my health goals 20 mins a day is my goal for the moment, I found when I made it into a challenge and put it on my blog I felt more accountable. Blessings for the week. Amanda

  2. Hi Amanda,
    I think 20 min a day is a great way to start. I'm with you. I found when I started telling people my goals, it created a desire to be more accountable too.
    Go Amanda :)

  3. Accountability is a great idea, Amanda! I need to be brave and do that on my blog as well. :)

    Angie, great post about asking for help from Above!
