My Life Being Renewed: 2014 Goals

2014 Goals

December 29, 2013

Honestly, 2013 was pretty good to me, I did a re-cap of 2013 here- but there is so much more that I want to accomplish in the coming year. I am always excited for a New Year and I know that so many people think that making resolutions is cliche- but for me, it's the usual & just another reason to make a goals list!
Starting a new year feels like a new clean slate to start fresh!

I Declare that God is going to bless me and my husband in 2014 and that we are going to succeed in everything we put our hand to- we will be the head and not the tail. God will continue to bless & increase our finances and we will lend and not borrow. I Declare that God is going before us making the crooked paths straight and that we will have the favor of man and God. I Declare that God is going to overflow our lives with blessings abundantly and in every way possible and that all of the visions that God has given to me will come to fruition. I Declare that God will open the doors that need to be opened & he will close the doors that need to be closed and that no man can stand in the way of our blessings that God has prepared for us! I Declare that God is going before us and showing us the way in which to walk, whether it is straight or to the left or to the right, we will continue to follow & trust in him. In Jesus name, Amen.
