Think about all of those miracle stories we could hear if we had the opportunity to sit and chat with people, lots of people.  Now, let’s take a moment and think to ourselves if we have already heard a miracle story (or, several)…how did hearing these make you feel?  For me, every time I do it gives me chill bumps and just reaffirms that We Are Not Alone, and, I’m sorry, but, THAT’S AWESOME!

It’s very normal to have those times in our lives where we need to be “awakened”.  Our sins tend to take a toll on our psychological, physical and emotional well-being.  And, boy, sometimes it feels like we just can’t get out of our own “funk”.

But, we can!  It really is temporary.  And, we really ought to give credit where it’s due…because of God, and, his “mercy-rich self”, we can “reawaken” and become “alive”, once again.  This gets an Amen!  😛

So, what does ‘reawaken‘ and ‘become alive, once again’ mean to you?  What would be some personal goals, short and long-term?  (three is always a good start 🙂 ).  Be sure they are SMART goals, too!…

S – specific

M – measurable

A – attainable

R – realistic

T  – time-bound

Why did we choose these as our three goals?  Do you think it’s tied in with how they will make us feel while on the journey?  Or, perhaps, how they will make us feel when the goals are accomplished?  Would you say, both, maybe?

Would we feel awakened and alive?  Yes!  You betcha we would.  So, what’s stopping us? Perhaps, we need to change or modify our goals (to be SMART)…

Now, on to my journal so I can write three SMART goals (long and/or short)…

Talk with you lata,



Ephesians 2:1 – 10     You were dead in your transgressions and sins.

“Thank You, Father, for love that conquers sin, life that conquers death, and grace that has conquered my heart.  May my life be a sweet aroma of praise to You.”  (how sweet)
