With each new year, I find myself more earnestly desiring to live each day wholly for Christ and to fulfill His calling on my life.
As I pray for our church family and friends around the globe, my prayer for each of you is that God would give you the clarity, grace, and courage to pursue Him in this new year and that it would be a fruitful year to His glory!
One of the things I love about the dawning of a new year is the natural momentum it carries and the opportunity for setting goals and revitalizing the important areas of our lives.
As we look forward to 2024, I wanted to share three resources with you that I pray will be a help to you in this new year:
Daily in the Word Devotions
These daily devotions, emailed out each morning, include a Scripture passage, expanded devotional thought, and a condensed take-away principle to carry through your day.
Each email also includes the full text of a daily Bible reading plan that will take you through the entire Bible each year—right from your inbox.
If you prefer a hard copy devotional book, you’ll love the brand new Courageous devotional.
This new book includes fifty devotions over ten weeks. Each week features a different Bible character who displayed exemplary courage (David, Daniel, Mary, etc.) and intertwines the stories of courageous Christians from the annals of history. These devotions will encourage and inspire you to courageously embrace God’s call on your life and conquer obstacles in the power of His name.
The Stewarding Life Planner
This personal life planner was developed from over thirty years of seeking to be more effective in God’s calling on my life on a daily basis.
I’ve learned that the best personal system for life stewardship begins with understanding and identifying the basic roles God has placed into my life and then filtering my priorities through these roles.
The Stewarding Life Planner is built around this system of starting with your roles and building daily and weekly priorities from these roles. It includes six months’ worth of daily pages as well as six months of weekly preview planning.
(A companion to this planner is the Stewarding Life Navigator which helps you identify your God-given roles and set some big-picture direction for your year.)
Happy New Year!
I pray one or more of these resources are a help to you as you begin a new year lived for the glory of God!
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20–21)
