Are you a goal setter?
We’re not “resolution” people. We are goal setters, but typically it isn’t related to any certain date or event. It’s always attached to seasons of life. When Michelle and I enter a new season, we try and zoom out and seek the LORD for additional wisdom and discernment so we can better understand what He is doing, and then align our goals based off of that, with the knowledge that what we want may have to change based upon His leadership.
So, as we looked back on the last year and took stock of where we’ve come from and where we’re going, we thought about what we’d like to accomplish in this new year, and share a few items with you.
The first is our next travel adventure. We’ve been at our home base for a while, and we’re itching to get back out. We’re praying about if that is something that is actually going to happen or if we are approaching the end of this chapter. However, travel has always been a part of our lives, and RVing has unlocked the power of travel as an educational tool (for the kids and for us!) So, we’re setting a goal of visiting the upper Midwest in 2022. So drop your recommendations for states like Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota in the comments.
Secondly, Michelle has expressed a desire to post more blogs, not only related to our travel adventures but also as relates to her study of natural remedies and dietary health. We realized in 2021 that Called 2 B Free represents a lot more than the freedom to travel. God has called us to a type of freedom in Christ that impacts every area of life, and we knew that, but what we didn’t know was how travel would unlock that truth in new and exciting ways. We’re setting a goal to be more intentional and productive in sharing what we learn.
Finally, 2021 was the year we finally pivoted to John as earner. It’s been hard in some respects, but it has been immensely freeing in deep and precious ways. It hasn’t looked typical, but nothing about our lives fits the “typical” mold! John produced some great videos for clients in 2021, and we’re setting a goal to expand upon that success in 2022 in order to make Called 2 B Free Productions the primary way that we pay our bills moving forward.
We’d covet your prayers in this new year, especially as regards the LORD’s provision. We have an incredible testimony throughout our marriage of how God has met every one of our needs, and we have the faith to believe that will continue. The prayers of other saints are an encouragement.
So, those are some of our goals as we look out upon the new year. Have you set any goals or made any resolutions for 2022? Tell us yours in the comments below and let us know what you think about the ones we’ve set.
Soli Deo Gloria
James 4:13-17 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil. So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.
